1. Dutchess Biercafe - 1097-1099 Main Street - Ste Plan Application
Applicant: - Nick Forlano - Business Owner
- Fred Romig - Attorney
8 Barristers Road Suite 1
Wappingers Falls, NY 12590
Attorney Fred Romig explained that the reason for asking for the meeting was to get the
the site plan signed off because the applicant is in the process of purchasing the two parcels
and consolidating them. There is a contingency in the purchase contract that a municipal
approval is required from the Village. He also explained the requirements of the bank for the
closing on this property and the need for the approvals.
Planning Board Attorney, Victoria Attorney explained that the Planning Board issued approval
in March on this project subject to several conditions. The conditions with the bank and the
board were not on a “ parallel track” so it got to a point where they cannot close until they have
a signed site plan. What is being asked is that there is some flexibility in the conditions. A
forty five day time limit to show the closing on the property and that the plat has been filed.
Attorney Victoria Polidoro reads the resolution (on file).
Business Owner, Nick Forlano explained to the board the time frame for the closing and the
need for getting site plan approval.
Chairman Klingzahn entertains a motion on the resolution.
Cris Phillips moves to adopt the resolution to amend the conditions of the subdivision and
site plan extension for Dutchess Biercafe. Motion seconded by Reylene VanGeldern. Discussion
none, all in favor. Aye. Motion carried.
Chairman Klingzahn explained to the client and consultants that this special meeting was
held to accommodate the applicant on this application and when he received the updated
copies of the resolution he would sign off on it.
