Board approves Dundee project

YATES COUNTY--The Yates County planning board approved site plans for three ongoing long-term projects during their regular meeting Thursday, March 24. These plans included applications for work to be done at the Dundee Dandy Mart, the former Garrett Winery building in Penn Yan and the condominium project at the former Penn Yan Marine facility. While it is up to each respective town and village to grant these projects final approval, several of these projects have been years in the making.
Williams Oil and Propane Inc. applied to relocate an existing fuel canopy at the Dundee Dandy Mart, located at 45 and 53 Water St. This does not include any new canopies, but instead moves the existing one farther south to the area formerly occupied by a building that was demolished in 2013. Some new tanks are being added to the site as well, but the existing Dandy Mini Mart will remain unchanged should this project be approved.
Board member Caryl Sutterby said the village of Dundee will also hold a public hearing on the matter Tuesday, April 12. The move is also expected to reduce safety concerns with cars cutting across the crosswalk along Water Street by moving the pumps farther south, and will also include additional curbing to further prevent this issue.
The county planning board also approved a site plan review for the former Garrett Winery building located at 111 Liberty St. in Penn Yan. The new plans intend to change the use of the building from storage to five apartments on the upper floor. The change will include a gravel driveway to parking located at the rear of the building, as well as a retaining wall to expand the patio area.
There will be five parking spots at the location, which is in line with Penn Yan's code requirement of one space per apartment. Applicant Rei Rei LLC also received an area variance to reduce the width of the two-way driveway to 14 feet, as the current gravel area goes onto the adjacent property. The site plan is currently for the top floor apartments only, with no current plans for what will occupy the lower floor. The applicant has expressed interest in acquiring the adjacent lot for parking should plans come up for that lower floor space.
Ryan Destro of BME Associates spoke to the board about the 38 condominium site plan planned for the former Penn Yan Marine site located at 15 Waddell Ave. in Penn Yan. Keuka Outlet Development applied for the plan, which also included 2,000 square-foot clubhouse and a private marina on the 15.4 acre site. Destro said the remediation work has been completed at the site as part of the brownfield cleanup program, and they are working with the village and county on the transfer of the property as part of a previous agreement between the three entities.
Destro said there will be no age restriction on these luxury condominiums, which he estimates will be priced at $500,000 per condo. Some board members brought up concerns with access to the north end of the property should a bridge on the site be compromised. Destro said while they are still working on that issue, they are exploring the possibility of widening the outlet path to allow access for emergency response vehicles.
