Fate of Controversial Lakefront Plan Could Be Decided
Residents concerned that decision could set a bad precedent for neighborhood.
An application to subdivide a Pines Lake property into two lots could be decided at a Planning Board meeting Monday.
Frederick and Barbara Habeeb want to sub-divide their 30,000 square-foot lakefront property on Pines Lake Drive East into two lots: one measuring about 15,800 square feet, the other about 14,500 square feet.
Testimony in the matter was heard at a board meeting earlier this month.
Residents expressed concern at the meeting that having two smaller lots so close to the lake sets a bad precedent despite the fact that most the properties on the street are approximately the same size.
The Pines Lake community is a private neighborhood around Pines Lake.
