Westfield Planning Bd. Approves Splitting Private Drive into Two By MELISSA BETKOWSKI
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader
WESTFIELD — At its meeting on Monday night, the Westfield Planning Board approved an application by Augusto and Benedetta Russo of 500 Summit Avenue for a minor subdivision approval.
Mr. and Mrs. Russo, and their neighbors, the Halfpennys, currently share a common driveway and want to separate that common driveway into two individual driveways.
This plan requires a realignment of the property line, which necessitating a variance from aspects of the Land Use Ordinance.
The board also began hearing the application Monday night of Bruce Campbell, owner of the Party Stop on South Avenue to construct a storage garage on the rear of his property.
Mr. Campbell was unable to appear at the meeting due to a family emergency and his attorney Louis Coe presented the case on his behalf.
Testifying at the meeting also was Camille Chamberlin, manager of the Party Stop and a 10year employee.
Mrs. Chamberlin testified that the other storage structures on the property, including a trailer and trucks, would be removed and that the garage would be much safer. She also testified that the only people who would see the structure would be passengers on the New Jersey Transit trains, which abuts the property.
Richard Thompson of North Av enue, whose property is directly behind
the Party Stop across the railroad tracks, questioned the lighting and the noise issues that would be created by this added structure. He noted that there is a light on the Party Stop property that shines directly into his house without the barrier of leaves on deciduous trees at the rear of the property.
The board also raised the issue of access to the garage, which was unclear on the architect’s plans.
Without Mr. Campbell being present to address these concerns, the board decided to adjourn this case until a later date when Mr. Campbell will be available to appear before the board.
Another case was also begun but not finished at Monday’s meeting.
The application by Messercola Brothers Realty Co., LLC to remove two existing storage buildings at 900 South Ave, W., and construct a threestory building with space for office/ commercial use on the first floor and
six apartments on each of the second and third stories.
Robert Kraus, attorney in the matter, began by questioning Edward Dec, a design engineer on the project.
There was a great deal of discussion about the front setback of the building, whether it should be setback like the other commercial or residential properties on South Avenue since the structure will house both commercial and residential tenants.
Another issue raised by neighbors of the proposed project dealt with the parking issues that would be raised by the combination of residential and commercial use.
Mr. Kraus had a number of other witnesses to call in the case, and as such, the case was adjourned until a later date.
One other application for a subdivision of a Brightwood Avenue property, was not heard because the people seeking the subdivision was not present at the meeting.
