20190084 Regatta View Phase 3 Jones Corr 2-8-19 JONES STEVE S ATTORNEYS AT LAW February 8, 2019 Mr. Bradley Birge via email Administrator of Planning and Economic Development City of Saratoga Springs 15 Vanderbilt Avenue Saratoga Springs, New York 12866 Re: Regatta View - Area B - Phase III PUD Site Plan Review Dear Brad: Last evening, the Planning Board adopted a unanimous resolution seeking lead agency in the SEQRA review of the PUD site plan. The DRC is an involved agency in this review. May I ask that the matter be placed on the DRC consent agenda for February 20, 2019 on a resolution deferring lead agency? By way of background, our client did file an application for subdivision review which, if granted, would avoid the requirement of architectural review from the DISC. For reasons that are not important here, we have decided to pursue the PUD site plan application pending before the Planning Board in an effort to secure final approval of that application. As such, DRC remains an involved agency and it will review the architecture of the structures we propose. As of this writing, it is not clear whether we will pursue the subdivision application at some point in the future. While there appears to be significant interest from Regatta View residents in this proposal, the public hearing last night suggests to us that there are disparate views among residents as to whether a subdivision would be the preferred development route. As such, we have advised the Planning Board that we will hold review of that application in abeyance, at least until the PUD site plan review has been completed. Thank you for your time and attention in this matter. Si Si Brei w he . Jones MJJ e 68 West Avenue, F.O.
