Franck, Comm. of Accounts City of Saratoga Springs 474 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 Re: SCPB Referral Review #19-68 -Text and Map Amendment-Wesley Community PUD Amendment Proposed amendment to an existing PUD with request for increased boundary and additional buildings from the original PUD legislation. Location: Lawrence Street (Town of Greenfield-City Zoning Map amendment) Received from the City of Saratoga Springs City Council on April 19, 2019. Reviewed by the Saratoga County Planning Board on May 16, 2019. Decision: Not Referrable Comment: The proposed PUD amendment was referred to the Saratoga County Planning Board (SCPB) by city staff based upon the GML 239 requirement that zoning amendments for projects located within 500 feet of a state or county ROW or a municipal boundary are deemed referable. On the day following an informative hour and fifteen-minute on-site review of the existing facilities and the proposed demolition and construction conducted courtesy of the applicant's representative I learned by aerial mapping that the PUD property boundary was just over 1,240 feet from the municipal boundary between Saratoga Springs and Greenfield. Hence, no formal review and recommendation by the SCPB is required or necessary. If, however, such recommended review were required staff indicated to its board at the monthly meeting that it would have no qualms at a favorable recommendation for approval for the amendment of the PUD. ..0,- 17 4 4,z.
