Hearing set on proposed Cayadutta St. residence

GLOVERSVILLE – The city Planning Board on Wednesday reviewed a site plan presented by Don Chase Company and Eileen Arrow for the proposed residential conversion of 22 Cayadutta St. into a residential loft apartment.

The proposal requires the addition of a full shower and kitchen to the space to create the residential unit. The building was previously a small dance studio.

During its Nov. 6 meeting, the Planning Board asked for the space available between the building and front property line to be identified so it could determine if there would be enough space for the necessary parking.

The revised drawing presented to the board on Wednesday showed two parking spaces in front of the building, and the property line was identified.

The revised drawing displayed no exterior changes to the actual building but did show exterior lighting on the west and north sides of the building.

The board felt the Short Environmental Assessment Form provided by the applicant was completed adequately and did not ask for any additional information to be added as part of the environmental review process.

Board member Geoffrey Peck aid there should be curbing or landscaping in the parking area to prevent motorists from using the lot as a cut-through.

“It works as two-fold because it answers our questions regarding traffic volume and at the same time will designate that area as parking and not a cut-through,” board Chairman William Ferguson added.

The board scheduled a public hearing regarding the property for its next meeting, in February.
