Application for Redevelopment of 4530 St. Paul Blvd.
(AKA 41 Colebrook Drive)

The coordinated environmental review pursuant to New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) is underway currently. Therefore, it is difficult to provide the exact dates for future decisions. Below is the proposed order in which decisions would be made for this application.

  • SEQRA – The next step requires the Town Board to make its Determination of Significance regarding the coordinated environmental review related to this project. This may occur at the Town Board’s August 15th meeting. However, if more time for review is needed, SEQRA could extend until September 19th.

  • Rezoning Decision – Once SEQRA is complete, the Town Board needs to render its decision on the proposed rezoning. If the Board denies the application, no further reviews/decisions would be required. If the Board approves the rezoning, then the other two Boards would need to act on the applications before them.

  • Site Plan and Subdivision – The Planning Board will consider the site plan and subdivision application related to the proposed new use of the building. This review and approval would likely be taken up first since the Planning Board’s decision(s) may affect what variances are needed.

  • Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) – Area variances related to the creation of a new lot around the existing building and the related plans for shared parking and access between the newly created lot and the existing church parcel would need to be reviewed and approved by the ZBA.

Below the application materials are provided. Please note that the site plan and floor plan documents under the Planning Board are the same plans being reviewed by all boards.

Community Mediation

The things our neighbors do can sometimes be a source of irritation and hostility -- from the way they maintain (or don't maintain) their property to the way they let their dogs bark all night long to the way their park their vehicles. Often, these minor annoyances are not addressed and silent resentment begins to build, leading to additional frustration, anger, and the threat of potential retaliation.

Talking with your neighbor is the best way to reduce the tension and solve the problem, but there are times when neighbors simply can't work out their disputes and must find some way to live together despite their differences.

That is where Community Mediation comes in. With the guidance of professionally trained and certified mediators, neighbors can come together in a neutral setting to resolve their dispute in a way that fosters creativity, communication, and compromise – and avoids the cost and hassle of the alternatives (lawsuits, police action, relocation, retaliation).

The Center for Dispute Settlement offers a full range of community mediation services to Irondequoit residents at a reasonable fee (generally $10 per party). For more information, please click here.

Please note that the Town is not the proper forum for resolving protracted conflicts between neighbors.

Again, most conflicts can be resolved by simply talking directly with your neighbor.

See our Steps to Resolution for information that may be helpful to you in addressing neighborhood concerns.

See also our Suggestions for Preventing Conflict with Neighbors for tips on living peacefully with your neighbor.

Simple consideration and appropriate communication with your neighbor may be all that is necessary to prevent conflicts from occurring or escalating.

Why Can't I Do What I Want On My Property?

Zoning laws, common in every community, are established to create a standard of living and protect property values. In highly populated suburban environments such as Irondequoit, these laws are essential in maintaining harmony and providing an attractive community to live, work and shop.

The town's zoning ordinance is not intended to take away the rights of property owners. Rather, the laws maintain our quality of life that make our town unique.

This information page is intended to inform our community of the standards created that make our town the best place to live in Monroe County. The responsibility lies with individual accountability in abiding by these standards.
