Resolution of Approval-Sage LLC
Ms. Knarich reviewed the resolution prepared by the Board Attorney. Ms. Psaras requested changes to be made
referring to the minimum side yard setback (throughout the document) as well as public discussion with a River Vale
neighbor, Mr. Xwaii requesting the distribution of proposed evergreens to be redistributed around the entire property,
not just in a row.
Mrs. Bistritz will review past minutes to find the exact wording for this request.
There was also a request to verify the address of the applicant. The only one listed for the project is that of the attorney
for the property owner. Ms. Knarich explained that she uses the information provided on the original application;
however she will speak with Mr. Bell to correct if necessary.
With no further discussion, a motion for approval of resolution was made by Mr. McLaughlin, subject to the above
noted changes as well as confirmation of payment of outstanding invoices to Ms. Price’s firm. Ms. Knarich explained
that her office still is owed money by the applicant for work performed. At this time MS. Price has a written guarantee
that the Potter family will pay all outstanding vouchers. However, it should be noted that no further work will be
performed for this application until all balances are paid in full. Seconded by Mr. Spatz. Roll call vote-AIF. Mr. Ardito
is not eligible to vote.
Ms. Psaras cannot vote on this resolution since she voted against the approval of this subdivision.

Chair Capazzi, Mr. Spatz and Mr. McLaughlin to determine if any changes need to be made to the Master Plan prior to
submission in the fall. They will also review the zoning map to see if there are any changes that should be made at this
Board members asked Ms. Knarich if this is legally allowed. She had determined that it was. Once the e members
discuss the Master Plan they will present their findings to the Board for further discussion.
