The Orange Town Plan and Zoning Commission met at Town Hall on Tuesday, Aug. 7 at 7 p.m.

Following are notes from the meeting:

1. Review of the Minutes from the June 19, 2018 and July 3, 2018 Meetings.

There was some discussion about the wording in a couple of areas of the June 19 minutes.

2. 8-24 Referral Municipal Improvements – Request by the Town of Orange to acquire property known as 28 Salemme Lane.

The state has decided not to go forward with the Orange Train Station at this time due to financial difficulties. The state would pay for the town to acquire the land that was going to be used with the condition that if a station were to be built, a platform would be built on the property. The Commission voted unanimously to recommend the agreement to the Board of Selectmen.

3. 8-24 Referral Municipal Improvements – Proposed donation of land from Starwood Ceruzzi Meadows LLC to the Town of Orange. For properties known as Lot 55-06-02; Lot 55-06-13; Lot 56-01-02B; and Lot 56-01-09; 20.29 total acres.

A large wet parcel behind Best Buy would be gifted to the town. It will put a nice buffer between the commercial and residential zones in the area. The Commission voted unanimously to recommend the plan to the Board of Selectmen.

4. Request by the Orange Economic Development Commission for a Special Event known as the ‘Orange Stampede’ – the idea of using public art to draw awareness and traffic to the Retail Sector, by placing life-size 5×8 acrylic oxen in targeted locations along the Boston Post Road.

The oxen would be sponsored and displayed by different Orange businesses from June – Sept of 2019.

The commissioners aired safety concerns, such as sightline obstructions. The concept was approved pending the approval of the zoning enforcement officer for each location.

5. Report of the Zoning Enforcement Officer.

St. Barbara’s Greek Church should contact the Commission regarding their upcoming Labor Day weekend festival.

 

PUBLIC HEARINGS 7:30 p.m. *(2)

8. * SPECIAL PERMIT APPLICATION – For the sale and/or Processing of Agricultural Products. For property known as 870 Garden Road. Submitted by property owners Raymond and Maryellen Holden. The request is to construct a 20’ x 30’ addition to an existing barn. A request has been made for the waiver of the submission of a sealed site plan as per Section 383-117B (1).

The Holdens requested the larger space in which to host children’s parties and crafting events which they have been doing for many years. The farm is not open to the public, all activities are by appointment only as they always have been. The addition would blend in with the rest of the buildings on the property. No neighbors would be impacted by the addition.

Application unanimously approved.

9. *PETITION TO AMEND THE ORANGE ZONING REGULATIONS — Submitted by 32 Seniors, LLC. To amend the Planned Residential
Development zoning regulations to reduce the restricted age from 62 to 55. Changes to Section 383-103 A, 383-109 C(4), and 383-113 (C) are proposed.

Applicant was not present. The item was moved to the next meeting.

First Selectman Jim Zeoli chose to speak on the issue. He said he’s received many complaints from residents in the building. He said the current owners always have excuses and it is not acceptable.

He believes that the town needs MORE housing for people aged 62 and older. He asked the commission to keep the age restriction as it is.
