Notice of Acceptance of Final Supplemental EIS

Columbia County -The Town of Stockport Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Holmes Estates. The Applicant has revised their initial proposal to propose the same 115 residential units configured as a Planned Development District (PDD) consisting of seventy-nine (79) single-family homes, with lot size ranges from 0.17 acres to 0.5 acres, and thirty-six (36) duplex townhouse units. The proposed revision in site layout permits an equivalent number of residential units to be developed while minimizing impacts to land and wetlands, and also minimizes the amount of infrastructure to be installed and maintained. Access to the site will be via two entrances. The single-family units will access NYS Route 9 by a new road at the southern end of the site and the duplex townhouses will access NYS Route 9 by a private entrance at the northern end of the site. Emergency vehicles will access the subdivision via Sunset Boulevard. In addition, a future road extension in the subdivision will be provided to connect Firehouse Road via the Town of Stockport's land to the south. The proposed improvements consist of maintaining the original 115 residential units examined in the FEIS but revised to develop the units on a smaller footprint and with shorter lengths of infrastructure. This proposed change is the only new alternative that will be evaluated in the SEIS. Copies of the Scope can be obtained from the Town of Stockport Town Clerk, Phone: (518)-828-2700 x114, Fax 518-828-2723, E-mail: christine@crawfordandassociates.com.
