Public discussion held regarding boater parking

Board meeting recap

Posted

On Monday, May 2, the Brightwaters board of trustees held their monthly meeting.

The board made a motion to consider the approval of the proposed sub-division “Windsor Estates in the Village of Brightwaters,” which is currently known as Section: 8, block 2, Lot:62 on the northeast corner of Windsor and South Country Road. The motion was approved by the board. Mayor John Valdini said that “right now the owner of the property is looking to put two houses on it.”

He noted that the lots are very large. Village attorney Charles J. Casolaro said that the applicant went to the planning board and that after a proposed applicant for a subdivision gets approval from the planning board, they’re to be approved for final approval to the board of trustees. The applicant will still have to go back to the planning board for site-plan review.

The board held a public discussion regarding boater parking on Corinthian Court and Linwood Court. Valdini noted that boater parking is difficult because the side streets are so narrow. The board is seeking public input about language on the parking signs and from people who live in the affected areas.

Trustee Del Vecchio spoke about the upcoming events over the coming weekends. On Saturday, April 14, the village will host the village-wide garage sale. Anyone who would like to participate is asked to please make sure they get their permit for the event. The following weekend, on May 21, the Sounds of Silence 5-10K run/walk will take place at Walker Beach to benefit pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety. On Saturday, May 28, the village will have their Memorial Day weekend ceremony at 10 a.m. at the top of the canal.
