Local philanthropist and real estate developer David Bolger will require “major soil permits” to construct his planned 91,000 square foot self-storage facility on Chestnut Street, and to add parking in the front of Pease Library.

Per current municipal code (Chapter 246), the Village Council must approve all “major soil permits.”

Councilpersons-Elect Paul Aronsohn, Keith Killion, and Anne Zusy likely to cast “no” votes on both Bolger requests.

Stay tuned . . .

§ 246-12. Action by Council on major soil permit. [Amended 10-13-1992 by Ord. No. 2375]

At the second regular meeting of the Village Council after receipt of the recommendation of the Planning Board with respect to whether or not a major soil permit should issue, or sooner if the Council shall decide to act sooner, the governing body may grant or deny the requested major soil permit with or without modifying conditions. Failure of the Council to act within the time limit above set forth shall be deemed a denial of the requested permit. In making its determination, the Council shall satisfy itself that the purposes of this chapter are complied with and that any permit, if issued, will not impair the intent or purpose of the zone plan, Chapter 190, Land Use and Development, or the Master Plan of the Village. In addition, the Council shall, before granting any permit, take into account the effect of the grant upon the sources of water supply available to the Department of Water Supply and upon any sewage collection and disposal system servicing the Village.

  1. We need this permit to put an addition on our house.
    We were having a full basement on a large addition.
    This turned out to be a formality to get the permit.
    If you think this is going to stop his project you’re mistaken.
    A study will be done and they will find nothing that can’t be taken care of via the project contract.

    Don’t get your hopes up.
    I suppose you live down the street and that’s why you’re so opposed to this project.

  2. Regarding:
    “Councilpersons-Elect Paul Aronsohn, Keith Killion, and Anne Zusy likely to cast “no” votes on both Bolger requests.”

    On what basis do you make this claim? Have they spoken out about this in the past?

  3. “We need this permit to put an addition on our house.
    We were having a full basement on a large addition.
    This turned out to be a formality to get the permit.”

    Was yours a “minor” or “major” permit? “Minor” permits are approved by the Planning Board. “Major” permits must be approved by the Village Council. The only “major” permit I’ve found in recent history was for the West Side Presbyterian Church.

  4. “On what basis do you make this claim? Have they spoken out about this in the past?”

    I suspect they will all vote “no” in light of Bolger’s $1.2 million worth of gifts. Starting off a political career by voting “yes” on such controversial projects would end those careers dead in their tracks!

  5. To 1:54 PM –

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.

    Are you kidding???

    The people that voted IN these guys WANT them to approve these projects.

    If you think the vote was to turn out pay-for-play politicians, you are mistaken. The vote was to turn out weak Republicans and replace them with Party Democrats.

  6. david has a lot of money.

  7. we will see.
