- 95 Foundry Street
- The side yard setbacks are not shown along the proposed property line between the units.
- Waiver request A. should be revised to 137-14 1.B. (2).
- Waiver request D should be revised to 137-4.1.2.B (2) (j).
- Waiver request E should be revised to 137-14.1.B. (2) (j).
- The rest of the waivers requested on the plan are not necessary since the project qualifies as a minor land development in the Caln Subdivision Ordinance.
Mr. Simon asked for a recommendation for Conditional Approval for the Final Minor Land Development plan based on the review letter from ARRO dated October 9, 2019. The motion was moved by Mr. Caporale and seconded by Mr. Benko. Poll: al ayes Motion, passed.
- 1847-1855 E. Lincoln Highway – Sketch Plan
Mr. Colagreco showed the Caln Plaza shopping center and a Sketch Plan for a proposed Dunkin Donuts. It’s location in on North Caln Road and Lincoln Highway. It would be where the old car wash was and where a 4 unit apartment building is. In order to put a Dunkin Donuts there they will need a Conditional Use approval for a drive thru. They will also need variance relief for the trash location because it’s too close to the property line. For their sign they will also need a variance from the Zoning board. Their next step is to file applications with the Township for the Conditional Use and Zoning Variances.
- Sign Ordinance
The commission had a question regarding 350 ft. separation between signs. Is that just on the same property frontage? Or does it apply to all signs?
