Now, we all know Martha’s giant storage building will be gorgeous, right? I mean, one can practically eat off the floor of her stable, which has its own dedicated kitchen, of course! Nevertheless, planners from the Bedford Planning Board will be making a visit to Martha’s home, just to be sure she isn’t planning anything untoward. My question is this: How can I become a member of the Bedford Planning Board?
From The Journal News, Lower Hudson Valley, NY:
Planners have scheduled a field trip to Martha Stewart’s 137-acre estate to be sure that the spot where she wants to put an oversized storage building won’t harm nearby wetlands.
The Bedford Planning Board is considering the celebrity’s application to build a 3,200-square-foot storage building on the border with Ralph Lauren’s property on Girdle Ridge Road, south of downtown Katonah.
The 4-acre zoning in Stewart’s neighborhood limits buildings of this type to 2,500 square feet, so she would need a special permit.
The building would be 25 feet high and finished in metal siding. The color: a shade of gray known as Bedford Ash.
The field trip is planned next week.
