DRB upholds its decision on Collette U-Haul Business

The DRB went into executive session at the end of their meeting on June 17 to discuss a request filed by the Collettes for reconsideration of the DRB’s recent decision denying their application for retroactive approval of their U-Haul business on Shelburne Road. After deliberation, the DRB voted to uphold their original decision.

At the start of their regular meeting, DRB Chair Mark Sammut welcomed Alex von Stange, the newly appointed non-voting youth participant in DRB proceedings. Sammut noted that the Selectboard recently voted to add young people to various town boards and commissions to introduce them to local government processes.

The Commission then considered and voted to approve:

A Design Review Application filed by Ian & Laura McCray for a 20’ by 20’ addition to their home at 12 Cottage Lane. The Historic Preservation and Design Review Commission had recommended approval.

A Design Review Application field by the Moreau Trust for replacing an existing entry porch and overhang at 5174 Shelburne Road. The Historic Preservation and Design Review Commission had recommended approval.

A Boundary Line Adjustment Application filed by the Ondovchick Family Limited Partnership which would transfer some land from an undeveloped parcel on Shelburne Road to the adjoining Days Inn lot to accommodate all of the existing hotel parking area.

A Final Plan Application filed by William Posey for a major subdivision consisting of four single-family homes and two duplexes at 516 Falls Road on the Fisher property directly across from the Post Office. The new subdivision will be known as Fisher Place.

The next meeting of the Development Review Board will be held on Wednesday, July 1 at 7 pm in the Municipal Center.
