owner seeks to convert tenants’ laundry room to public laundry | News, Sports, Jobs
LAKE PLACID – A Lake Placid landlord seeks permission to convert a tenant-only laundry room into a public laundromat.
Kyle Dellavalle, who takes over an apartment building on Main Street from his father Pat, submitted an application to the City-Village Joint Review Board last month for permission to convert a private laundry room with two washers and two clothes dryers in his building in a public company, Silver City Laundromat. Its request was submitted to the Joint Review Panel at its Wednesday meeting.
The Dellavalle building is located at 2749 Main Street, across from the Bowlwinkles bowling alley. It looks like the laundry room has already been open to the public. The company is listed on Google and already received notices from non-tenants just two weeks ago.
The Silver City laundromat would be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, according to Dellavalle’s request. The six existing parking spaces for tenants would be reduced to five, corresponding to the number of units in the building.
“It’s a major improvement for this building”, Code enforcement officer Michael Orticelle told the Joint Review Panel on Wednesday.
The laundry room was previously rented as living space, according to Orticelle.
“Which is completely ridiculous, in my opinion”, he added.
Orticelle noted that Dellavalle was working on the modernization of the building.
The Joint Review Panel asked Dellavalle to send a notice to neighbors about the project. The project should be back on the agenda for a future meeting of the review committee.
