Project Description: The project is Phase III of the Sandy Lane Estates Subdivision. Phases I and II were previously approved. Phase III includes the subdivision of 102.59 acres on the west side of NYS Route 9N into 15 lots, creating 14 new building lots (i.e., lots 21 - 34) and a 2.26 acre subdivision road/stormwater retention parcel.

One new single family dwelling with on-site water supply and wastewater treatment system is proposed for each of the 14 new building lots.

The 14 space parking lot will provide parking on the east side of Route 9N for the new building lots. Shoreline access for water recreation will be deeded to all of the 14 building lots. Boat docks are only proposed for lots 27, 28, 33 and 34. The new dock will also provide space for two lots in Phase II of the subdivision. The dock will be a U-shaped dock with lateral extensions 46.5 feet and 60 feet in length. It will be located on the west side of the shoreline access parcel in front of a picnic area. The proposed subdivision road will be owned by the Sandy Lane Estates Homeowners Association and maintained by the HOA pursuant to additional road maintenance charges for lots 21 - 34. Additional charges for the maintenance of the stormwater retention area and beach usage will also be assessed to lots 21-34. Boat docking assessment will only be made to those lots with dock rights.
