March 2014 Report
March has been another cold month with spring somewhere out there. More interest and fewer permits have come in. Several more discussions of pending permits have been conducted with residence and architects on up and coming projects.
In according to the agreement between CBA and Elms Hotel, the winter limitation on room availability was submitted to the ZEO prior to the November implementation and comes to an end in April. (see below ZBOA)
44 Central Avenue
No further information at this time as to Superior Court Appeal.
As stated in previous reports, I make biweekly contact at town hall thru assessor office and building office as to any reported construction or other new projects. Several residents have contacted me as to various matters that may have been overlooked by this office. It appears that we have been on top of work related issues in Crescent Beach area, however if something does get by; please contact the CBA ZEO or town building officials of any unauthorized works.
As stated in the January 2014 Report, it is unfortunate for some residence that their proposed or request for zoning permits have been lapse over the one year mark, and now that FEMA and coastal flood plans have been realigned they cannot begin their projects and must be recalculated and revamped to adhere to the new standards. The Town of East Lyme cannot issue any building permits unless these areas have been approved. I as ZEO for Crescent Beach Association have been working with the town to ensure these situations can be dealt with accordingly.
Coastal Flood Plans have changed and State of Connecticut DEEP has been more restrictive to what can and cannot be done in these areas. Make sure your planning agents, architects, design staff work closely with you on new items to prevent unneeded expenses.
****AS PER THE REGULATIONS, NO PERMITS HAVE BEEN ISSUED IF ANY OUTSTANDING CBA TAXES OWED. THE LIST USED IS THAT SUPPLIED TAX COLLECTOR. Zoning Enforcement Officer email for CBA business – email@example.com
