ENB - Region 1 Notices 10/01/2008

Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Matinecock, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption and Implementation of Local Law 2-2008 - Amendment to Chapter 195 "Zoning," Including New Article VIII "Regulation of Slopelands" will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of Local Law 2-2008 which implements new regulations that regulates development on slopelands having a natural topographical gradient of 15 percent or greater, such that no excavating, grading, filling or paving of land, or construction, alteration or addition to a structure or building shall be permitted on slopelands, unless and until a slopelands use permit has been issued by the Planning Board. The local law also excludes from the net lot area those portions of newly created lots which contain steep slopes and sets forth standards for the issuance of such slopelands use permit, all of which are designed to ensure that slopelands are protected to the maximum extent practical. As slopelands comprise over one quarter of the land within the Incorporated Village of Matinecock, regulating disturbance and construction on steeply-sloped lands will serve to limit the potential for adverse impacts on these slopes, thereby protecting both natural and human resources of the Village. The project is located throughout the Incorporated Village of Matinecock, New York.
