Marbletown zoning board rejects wedding venue at B&B site

The entrance to the 1712 House bed-and-breakfast at 73 Mill Dam Road in Marbletown, N.Y. DWAYNE KROOHS — DAILY FREEMAN By William J. Kemble, COTTEKILL, N.Y. >> The Marbletown Zoning Board of Appeals has overruled the town code enforcement officer’s determination that would have allowed the owner of the 1712 House bed-and-breakfast business to expand the operation to include a wedding venue. The decision drew applause from an audience of about 70 people during a meeting Wednesday night. The board said Thomas Brownlie could not be granted a special-use permit for events on the 78-acre property at 73 Mill Dam Road. Board Chairman Paris Perry said the enforcement officer incorrectly interpreted what type of business would be approved by the permit. “The ZBA has reviewed all permits ... in the R1 zoning district and determined that none of these uses can be construed or authorized [as a] commercial wedding venue in the R1 district,” Perry said. “Consequently, the ZBA determines that, [under] current zoning, commercial wedding venues is not a permitted use ... and the determination of the [enforcement officer] to the contrary is reversed.” The determination was made after neighboring property owners Nancy Gagliardi and Declan Denehan filed an appeal to the enforcement officer’s decision.
