Dutchess County - The Town of Hyde Park Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Local Law to amend the provisions of the Zoning Law and the Zoning Map of the Town of New Hyde Park relating to the CIA Neighborhood District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of local law to amend provisions of the zoning law and zoning map relating to the CIA Neighborhood District. The rezoning includes 7 parcels consisting of 152 acres. The major change is the elimination of the Bellefield Planned Development District, conversion of the CIA Neighborhood District to the St. Andrews District and movement of the district line north to include additional lands owned be the Culinary Institute of Amercia. Regulations in the St. Andrews District are designed to assure relatively similar standards for the quality of development on the west and east sides of NYS Route 9. The project is located on the west side of NYS Route 9 at the Culinary Institue of America and adjacent lands to the north in the Town of Hyde Park, New York.
