Public Comment:

Discussion and decision regarding Pechstein Ranch residential project and development agreement.  Lennard Grydzynski/Town Manager

Mr. Richards introduced Lennard Grydzynski and Charles Stewart of Pechstein Ranch, a gated equestrian residential development located on the northwest corner of Irene and Lola.

Mr. Grydzynski explained that the project borders Irene to the south, Lola to the east, Leslie to the west.  The development is 443 acres, surrounded by low density residential property.  The project consists of one and one quarter acre lots and caters to the equestrian lifestyle.  The development includes twenty five acres of mixed use commercial property, ten acres of park property, sixteen acres of bridle path, and an indoor riding arena.  This project also includes a service agreement with Utilities Inc. for both sewer and water.

The ten acres of park property will be divided into two five acre park sites on the East and West sides.  The mixed use commercial land is intended to be equestrian themed.  The bridle path will consist of sixteen acres and will form about four and one quarter miles of continuous riding path.  The first phase of the project is in the Southwest corner.  Essentially the project will be three phases with each phase being about 100 lots.  The master traffic and drainage studies have been approved for phase one.  The next step is to have the phase one final map approved by next year to begin construction and sales.  

The fiscal impact will be unique with this project because of the value of the homes and because it is a private community.  All streets and open spaces will be entirely maintained by the Homeowners Association.  Mr. Johnson asked who is responsible to put in the

roads.  Mr. Grydzynski stated that the developer is responsible.  Mr. Johnson asked if this includes curbs and gutters.  Mr. Grydzynski stated that this includes asphalt only, no curbs, gutters, or street lights.  Mr. Richards asked if the drainage plans have been approved.  Mr. Grydzynski stated that they have been approved.  Mr. Willis asked what dictates the price of the lots. Mr. Grydzynski responded that typically the finished price of the home is three times the cost of the unfinished lot.  Mr. Willis said the surplus is not realistic as we don’t know the price of the houses yet.  There will be an impact to our fire service also.  We have to look at the citizens and what facilities they will be using.  
Mr.  Grydzynski stated that the developers are paying all the impact fees.  Mr. Miraglia asked how the horse manure will be handled.  Mr. Grydzynski responded that the manure issue will be addressed through the CC&R’s.

Mr. Grydzynski stated that the development agreement was submitted today and a copy will be provided to Mr. Richards for Town Board approval.


The meeting was adjourned at 6:55 p.m.
