Suffolk County - The Town of East Hampston, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed East Hampton Affordable Housing Credit Program will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The primary purpose of the East Hampton Affordable Housing Credit Program is to promote and facilitate the creation of affordable housing by the private and public sectors in the Town of East Hampton while at the same time enhancing the conservation of open space within the Town by permanently sterilizing certain lands purchased by the Town through the creation of conservation easements. The sterilized lands consist of natural, scenic, passive recreational, forest, or open land or sites of special historical, cultural, aesthetic or economic values. The Program will allow the Town to transfer affordable housing credits from areas where the Town has sterilized land to other parcels in designated receiving zones for affordable housing projects. The affordable housing credits will allow recipients the opportunity to build developments or apartments consistent with the Town Code but that would otherwise not be allowed under Suffolk County Department of Health Services requirements.

Once the affordable housing credits are transferred for use in a project in the private or public sector, covenants and restrictions will be placed in the deed to assure the housing project remains affordable. Owners will be required to update their current septic systems to accommodate the greater usage because the septic systems for the affordable housing projects still must meet current Suffolk County Department of Health Services septic flow standards. To facilitate this requirement the Town of East Hampton, where necessary or preferred from a planning standpoint, may allow owners to utilize Town right-of-ways, alleys, and parking lots to accommodate the upgraded septic system. The project is located in East Hampton, NY.
