The Cortlandville Planning Board meets this evening at 6:30pm in the Raymond G. Thorpe Municipal Building with some important items on the agenda.
One of the most notable is the proposed redevelopment of the Cortland Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership on Route 281, the dealership suffered major damage from a fire on January 20th. The cause ended up being charging of cordless tool batteries.
QPK Design Architecture Engineering Site & Planning will present plans and renderings of the proposed “new” dealership to the planning board. Being proposed is a new 23,925 square foot dealership, with showrooms, offices, and a service department. One item to note is the Jeep brand will have its own section within the new building.
The parking area would also be repaved and expanded with enough parking for a total of 346 spaces. Aside from needing approval of the Planning Board, developers will need approval from NYDOT and the NYSDEC, as the location is within a planned commercial district and an aquifer and wellhead protection overlay. The property is also on what is considered an archaeological sensitive area and will require submission and review by the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
Another item on the agenda for this evening is the proposed solar project from Carson Power. The proposed solar project would be located on the hill between Blue Creek Road and St. Mary’s Cemetery in Cortlandville.
The proposed project would have ground mounted fixed-tilt solar arrays with a maximum of 10 feet. Carson Power plans to show images of points of view to where the project is located in various areas in Cortland.
Additionally on the agenda are a conditional permit for the Cortlandville Fire Department for food trucks, Reagan Development regarding a proposed apartment building next to Country Max, and an amendment to Conditional Permit Requirements.
