ZBA Re Murphy Lane Project Bleeds On

It is late so this is the very short version.  The meeting became chaotic and confused.  Keith Kaplan wanted to find some way to avoid requiring the project be knocked down.  He decided the board should refer the project to the Design Review Committee to some how decide whether something that approximated the original barn could be designed.  James Helicke and Susan Steer were terrific.  They pointed out that it was a bad project to begin with and that now, with the original barn that was supposed to be rehabbed gone, in violation of what was originally promised in the application, there was no way to salvage what was left.  The usual suspects as in Hasbrouck, Carlson, Kaplan, and Moore out voted Helicke, Steer, and Cheryl Grey.  It now goes to Design Review for advisement.
