Ms. Brylinski conducted the Short Form SEQR Review for the Loughlin & Billig PC project. The Board determined that the project would not result in any significant adverse environmental impact and issued a negative declaration.
Mr. Garigliano passed out to the Board a resolution appointing Loughlin & Billig PC with 461 Broadway LLC as agent of the agency for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, reconstructing, renovating, rehabilitating, installing and equipping of the facility at 461 Broadway in Monticello. A short discussion of the project ensued, including discussion of the moving affidavit that describes the competitive edge reasons the firm had to find a new location for their existing business. On a motion by Mr. Rieber, seconded by Mr. Barbuti, the Board voted and the resolution was unanimously passed.
Mr. Garigliano commented that the Village of Monticello is proposing to amend a local law that would eliminate the need for certain commercial projects to go through the site plan review process.
Mr. Garigliano also stated that the IDA Board will soon be seeing another RMAP application from a health food store in Callicoon, and the Sullivan County Funding Corporation will see another Millennium Loan Fund application from a market in Liberty.
Mr. Loughlin gave a brief summary of his search for a proper building for his expansion and his decision to stay in Monticello, and that he will be adding possibly 20 new employees to his firm.
Chairman Steingart asked if there was any other Board comment or public comment. There was none.
There being neither Board comment nor comment by the public, Chairman Steingart asked for a motion to adjourn the meeting. On a motion by Mr. Barbuti, seconded by Mr. Gold, the Board voted and the meeting was adjourned at approximately 1:20 PM.
