Notice of Acceptance of Draft GEIS and Public Hearing

Suffolk County - The Riverhead Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Update of the 1993 East Main Street Urban Renewal Plan. A public hearing on the Draft GEIS will be held on June 19, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. at the Riverhead Town Hall, Meeting Room, 200 Howell Avenue, Riverhead, NY. Written comments on the Draft GEIS will be accepted by the contact person until June 30, 2008. The Riverhead Community Devlopment Agency cites the Comprehensive Plan adopted in November 2003 pursuant to Section 272 of State Town Law and the new zoning districts implemented according to its findings. The agency believes the revised zoning regime within the renewal area warrants a review of the renewal plan to ensure its consistency with the Comprehensive Plan and that the potential redevelopment of the area under that zoning may generate significant environmental and socio/economic impacts of a generic nature. The project is located in the East Main Street Urban Renewal Area established under the plan: generally bounded by Peconic Avenue on the west; Ostrander Avenue on the east; the Long Island Railroad on the north and the Peconic River on the south within the Town of Riverhead, New York.

Contact: Chris Kempner, Town of Riverhead Community Devlopment Agency, 200 Howell Avenue, Riverhead, NY 11901, Phone: (631) 727-3200, extension 287.
