Madison Street Expansion and Palmer Terrace Renovation Approved


Two applications that have spent several months before the village’s regulatory boards on Thursday cleared another hurdle when they were approved by the Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review.

Dominic LaPierre and Laura Auerbach got the green light for their renovation and expansion project at 200 Madison Street, which would more than triple the original 1,200-square-foot, two-story house to about 4,000 square feet. Their “yes” from the BHPAR, however, is conditioned upon the approval by the Sag Harbor Highway Department of a new curb cut and driveway apron on Madison Street, which is still pending.

John and Manon Reuter won the board’s favor for a makeover of their house at 58 Palmer Terrace. The project had also been before the Zoning Board of Appeals since late last year, but it was recently withdrawn from the ZBA’s consideration because it was significantly redesigned, so it no longer requires any variances. The existing building coverage of 1,685 square feet will be expanded to 3,585 square feet.
