continued JGB has yet to decide whether to sell its proposed 47 residential units as condominiums or to lease them as apartments. Meanwhile, Stevens is concerned about how the development’s residents will be affected by noise and lighting from the existing restaurants, three of which will feature outdoor decks.
For the better part of a year, the planning board has been hearing from Liverpool Properties LLC, Val Lamont’s firm which owns the properties where Limp L:izard BBQ and the White Water Pub are doing business. Liverpool Properties wants to build a new deck behind Limp Lizard and a 49-space parking lot to be shared by the Limp Lizard and the White Water.
“Now that we’ve seen the JGB piece,” noted planning board chairman Joe Ostuni Jr., “we’re getting closer to viewing the basin block’s development comprehensively.”
Ostuni asked his board members to consider passing a resolution to urge the Village Board of Trustees to retain ownership of a 20-foot-wide strip of land between the White Water and the Barking Gull, and to open it up to vehicular traffic leading to the planned shared parking lot.
The planning board will convene to consider that possibility at a special meeting set for 6 p.m. Monday, April 7, at the Village Hall.
On March 24, the board welcomed alternate Robin Daloia who filled in for members Mike LaMontagne and Tom Tartaglia, neither of whom could attend that day.
