Andrew Kazanjian #21-04
10 Saddle Brook Dr.
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
S/B/L 193.6-1-52 Lake Residential
Location: 1390 Rt. 9P
Applicant seeks a two lot subdivision, to construct two single family dwellings for future sale.
Applicant Andrew Kazanjian appeared before the Board and reviewed his proposal to subdivide the 1390 Rt. 9P parcel into two lots, in order to construct two single family homes for future sale. He told the Board he knows he has the frontage and setbacks, but will need a variance as he lacks the square footage per lot, once divided. According to the regulations, each lot should have 15,000 sq. ft. but if divided, each lot would have 9,025’+/- sq. ft. He noted that other lots in the surrounding area seem to have the same or even less and he cannot purchase if unable to subdivide.
Chairman Ian Murray stated the Board knows what parcel that is and this would be a welcome improvement. He told the Applicant to think about driveway locations and to contact Saratoga County Sewer District to obtain two sewer lines. He then asked if there were any Board questions or comments; the Board agreed this would be a very welcome improvement.
Chairman Ian Murray stated the Board will send the Applicant to the ZBA for the necessary variance and, if granted, the Applicant will return next month for a public hearing.
The Applicant thanked the Board.
