Apartment application, sand & gravel extraction proposed before DRB

The Chester Development Review Board took a look at two new conditional use permit applications during its Monday, June 24 meeting. After a site visit to 18 S. Main St., the board accepted the application and exhibits for Scarlett Veil, LLC, a company owned by the Meyer family,for a renovation and adaptive reuse of a garage as an apartment as well as a laundry facility for tenants of three apartments.

The board gave Chris Meyer a list of documents and drawings they will need to proceed and scheduled an additional hearing for Monday, July 22.

The second conditional use application, for the extraction of sand and gravel from the Eddy Farm off Potash Brook Road, was submitted by Larry Semones and calls for the reopening of a gravel operation that dates back to the 1930s. The applicants envision a 20-year project that will take 200,000 cubic yards of gravel in four phases with a maximum of 20,000 cubic yards in any given year.

Semones said that less than 15 acres of the farm’s 262 acres will be affected. “At the end of the day,” said Semones, “we want this back as hayfield.”

A site visit for the project has been scheduled for 8 a.m. on Saturday July 13 and the conditional use permit hearing will be reconvened at 6 p.m. on Monday Aug. 12.
