For the past few months the Lloyd Town Board has received a number of requests from developers seeking waivers from the town’s six month building moratorium targeting large projects that was passed in mid January.
In late February, the Town Board approved waivers that will allow five proposed projects to proceed. In each case the Town Board stated that having these five projects continue to be subject to the moratorium would result in “extraordinary hardship” to the applicant if they were delayed. The board further stated that these projects, “will not adversely affect the health, safety, or welfare of the Town or significantly conflict with the general purpose and intent of the Moratorium.” Auto Zone will construct a retail auto parts store at 3670 Rte. 9W; D&D Auto Parts will build a large accessory storage building beside their present store at 3537 Rte. 9W; Joyful Moments Childcare will build a day-care facility at 620 New Paltz Rd; RTH Holdings LLC will be building a staging warehouse at 323 Upper North Rd. and Glidepath will construct an energy storage facility behind the Highland Park & Ride lot off of Rte 9W. The project will cover two acres of a 100 acre parcel and access will be from Lumen Lane.
The Town Board held off on making a decision to grant a waiver to the Torsone Funeral home to build a waiting room at their present location at 38 Main St.; P We Holdings to build a catering hall off of Rte 9W, south of the Post Office; The Views, a mixed use project of two, 3 story buildings with a total of 44 apartments on the upper two floors and 14,000 sq/ft of commercial space on the ground floor, located north of Mayer Drive on the west side of Rte 9W; and The Village In The Hudson Valley that is seeking to construct a 130 bed Assisted Living Facility just opposite the Bridgeview Shopping Plaza on the west side of Rte 9W. This revised proposal is part of a much larger senior community development project that appears to be on hold for now.
The requested waivers for these later projects will be subject of discussion and possible action by the Town Board at their April 15th meeting at 7pm, 12 Church St, Highland. In light of the current medical emergency in the country, public access to this meeting is to be determined.
