The Prolonged Seaside Township Land Use Board, at its Zoom meeting last Wednesday night, Might 12, listened to applications linked to a few corporations on LBI, like a ask for for insignificant subdivision of the residence at 18 West 18th St. in North Beach Haven – at the moment the Mr. Tee’s Shark Island miniature golfing program – to make it possible for for the development of two one-family members homes. The board uninamously permitted this approach and subsequently memorialized the approval.
Mr. Tee’s has two destinations, the first of which is the North Beach Haven enterprise set up in 1972. A second spot was afterwards opened at Bay and Engleside avenues in Seashore Haven.
As the software specified, Mr. Tee’s Shark Island house owners Karen A. Rosania and Scott E. Rate, and applicant Marilyn A. Houser, who is acquiring the land in North Seashore Haven, asked for “minor subdivision acceptance so as to demolish buildings presently on the web-site and subdivide the assets into two one-household residential lots” fronting 18th Avenue.
Though at the moment the web-site of a commercial establishment, the land is in simple fact in the R50 household zone. In addition, the two proposed loads – one particular 70 by 100 sq. feet and the other 60 by 100.08 square feet – are of conforming size. As this sort of, no variances were wanted for the application, which was swiftly permitted by the board.
Later on in the meeting, the board was asked to provide an interpretation of median block line in buy to proffer a selection on an software from Barrier Island 8200 LLC pertaining to the Kubel’s Far too residence, located at 8200 Extended Seashore Blvd. in Brighton Beach front. The applicant requested “major subdivision approval to demolish all current improvements on the residence and produce 6 residential solitary-loved ones creating a lot.” Ideas furnished with the software confirmed a few of the proposed lots fronting Rhode Island Avenue, to the north of the house, and three fronting Connecticut Avenue to the south.
The house is partly in the residential zone and partly in the commercial zone, but the application was submitted in advance of the township adopted an ordinance, in March, prohibiting development of any one-family households in a industrial zone.
As board counsel Kevin Quinlan pointed out, the software hinged on “the definition of the median block line,” about which the applicant’s staff and the LUB, recommended by municipal engineer Frank Small, disagreed.
James Raban, legal professional for Barrier Island 8200, defined that in the township’s ordinance 205-55, detailing the R-50 Basic Household Zone, Part C(2)(b) – which was the level of competition – states: “(W)listed here the rear residence line of a great deal is not the median line of the block, the ton place shall be not fewer than 5,000 square ft.”
“My situation on behalf of the applicant was that all of the plenty in the proposed subdivision, as we offered it, contained a rear home line that was aspect of the median line of the block (Block 13.16),” Raban said. “Based upon that interpretation, the minimum amount required good deal dimensions less than the ordinance is 4,500 sq. toes, and our subdivision was conforming.”
The board, however, “took the place that the rear house lines of the plenty proposed in our subdivision did not constitute the median line of the block,” he continued. “Under the board’s interpretation, the least demanded lot dimensions is 5,000 square toes, and as a final result, variances would be needed for the subdivision format as proposed.”
Minor claimed because the width of the block is 160 ft, he would divide that by two, resulting in two a lot of 80 feet. “It is my impression that it must be divided at 80 and 80,” he remarked. “I imagine it really should be divided down the center.” The applicant’s proposed loads, although, were 85 feet on 1 aspect of the block and 75 toes on the other, in an endeavor at lot uniformity by way of their interpretation of the ordinance.
The board’s definition, based mostly on Little’s clarification, indicates the assets could have just five lots instead than the 6 proposed.
All board associates except for Rob Roth and Dave Southwick, who had stepped down from this application, voted in favor of Little’s interpretation. As Quinlan summarized, “The board has outlined the midblock line at 80 ft. At this stage I consider the application is concluded.”
The board then moved on to the night’s closing application, a ask for from owner and applicant Hagler’s Marina, at 4114 Prolonged Seashore Blvd. in Brant Seashore, for “major web-site approach acceptance so as to set a six-foot by 10-foot foods truck on the northerly entrance portion of the premises.”
Danni Hagler and Steven Haggart, also on behalf of home owner Joseph Hagler, requested for acceptance for a food items truck to be positioned to the aspect of their parking ton to present largely lunchtime services. “Many consumers over the yrs have questioned about an on-site foods service” at their “longstanding spouse and children enterprise,” now in its 40th year, said Danni Hagler.
With the latest reduction of Dom’s Travel-in – a former Brant Seashore cafe that is now the web page of two homes – she hoped they could supply “a speedy and delicious” meals selection to the space, with items these kinds of as tacos, warm pet dogs and hamburgers.
A trailer is a prohibited use in the industrial and marine business zones therefore,, the board users had to make a decision if the word “trailer” in the ordinance bundled food stuff trucks these as the 1 Hagler and Haggart proposed.
Quinlan said there is very little in the ordinance that defines “trailer,” and Raban mentioned he thinks the ordinance is intended to prohibit cell properties. Raban also thinks the candidates should be allowed to ask for a use variance, while Quinlan seemed to disagree.
One board member pointed out that Sunny Rae’s foodstuff truck in Bayview Park in Brant Beach is permitted, but is the only a single permitted in the township.
In the close, the board passed a motion decoding a food stuff truck as a prohibited use on the applicants’ assets. All voted in favor except for Alexander Meehan. Southwick and Ron Van Buren did not report votes. As this kind of, the application could not transfer forward and general public comment was not authorized.
