Planning Board closes library public hearing

At its meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11, the Planning Board closed the public hearing on the proposed expansion at the Lewisboro Library and is set to draft a resolution for a decision at the board’s next meeting on Jan. 8. A written comment was entered into the record by South Salem resident Dean Travalino regarding the library project. He said the town campus has a history of causing water runoff damage to surrounding properties that has been documented over the years by the town. Mr. Travalino said that now is the appropriate time to address the long-standing issue. Representatives of the library said the new construction will somewhat reduce the total runoff from the library. Town Planner Jan Johannesen agreed that there was well-known damage from water runoff from the town campus but questioned whether taking on that issue was applicable to this project. Board members made a similar acknowledgment, saying the issue was too large in scope to address with the library expansion but was a concern and would need to be addressed.
