At 6:24 PM the Board took a brief recess in order to review a memo from Atty Buettner.

At 6:33 PM the Board reconvened.

The Board discussed in great detail the proposal by Corinth Senior Housing Development LLC to build senior housing in the Village.  The Village is in negotiations to sell the former Firemen’s Field and Beach Parking Lot for the housing project.  The LLC has submitted a grant application for $75,000 of grant funds administered by the Village from the CDBG program toward preliminary engineering costs for the proposed senior housing complex.  .  The Board discussed the proposed grant/deferred loan agreement with Atty Buettner.  It was discussed that the Village Board is eager to help the proposed project come to fruition, which is demonstrated through everything the Village is doing or will be doing during the project, including holding the note and mortgage on the property, removing and relocating the fire siren and building currently on the property, place fill, provide an updated survey, Phase 1 environmental study, abstract of title, and update the GAR study. 

Planning Board Chairperson Matt Rogers stated the Planning Board has only received a rough sketch of the proposed development and cannot declare the application complete at this point.  The Planning Board would also need a detailed DEC approved storm water plan before declaring any application complete. Once a complete application is reviewed by the Planning Board and the Saratoga County Planning Board a public hearing on the project would be held.   Mr. Rogers stated the Village should refrain from placing any fill on the property until a storm water plan has been approved due to the site’s proximity to wetlands.

Motion by Trustee Saunders, seconded by Trustee Denno, authorized mayoral signature on a $75,000 deferred loan agreement with Corinth Senior Housing Development LLC if it is accepted by the LLC.
Carried – 4 – 0
