Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Village of Southampton Zoning Board of Appeals, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Chabad of Southampton, Inc. will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the applicant seeking approval from the Village of Southampton ZBA, permitting the applicant the lawfully pre-existing single family dwelling and granting special exception approval for use of the residence as a House of Prayer, commonly referred to as a Chabad House.

As part of the proposed action, the applicant proposes to abandon the existing residential sanitary system and install a new septic tank-leaching pool sanitary system design which meets the Suffolk County Department of Health Services (SCDHS) engineering design standards for the proposed uses. This system will require review and approval by the SCDHS and the Board of Review.

Under the proposed action, the Applicant will provide site access via a twenty four (24) foot wide asphalt driveway located east of the existing residence which will lead to a sixteen (16) stall paved parking lot located south of the existing residence. Access to the rear residential lot will be provided through the parking area which will connect to the southern end of the existing gravel driveway. The remainder of the existing driveway will be removed and twenty (20) foot buffers will be provided along the western and eastern property boundaries.

The project is located at 214 Hill Street in the Village of Southampton, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Suffolk County - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Southampton to Bridghampton Line and Expansion of Bridgehampton Substation. The action involves the installation of a new 69 kilovolt electric transmission line from the Southampton Substation to the Bridgehampton Substation. Four routes were analyzed. One would use the existing easements between the two substations. The second (Direct Route Alternative) would transverse various existing roadways along the most direct route between the two substations. The third would use the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Montauk line right-of-way to Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike. The last would follow Montauk Highway to Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike. The Existing Route Alternative would be all underground. The direct Route Alternative would be either in a 55 percent underground and 45 percent overhead configuration or an all under ground configuration. The transmission line could be above ground, underground or a combination of both for the LIRR and Montauk Highway Alternatives. In addition, the Bridgehampton Substation would be expanded at a LIPA owned site adjacent to the existing Bridgehampton Substation. The Final Environmental Impact Statement is available on the LIPA website at: www.lipower.org under the About LIPA, Powering LI tab. The project is located from North Sea Road to Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike in Southampton, New York.
