Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The Town Board of the Town of Red Hook, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Local Law No. 7 of 2008 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of amendments to the Town of Red Hook Zoning Law. The proposed amendments would reduce the required setbacks for sheds in the R1, R1.55, RD 3 and RD5 Zonings Districts. The proposed amendments were recommended by the Town's Zoning Review Committee and respond to frequent applications to the Zoning Board of Appeals for area variances for accessory structures. The amendments are designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of Town residents. The project is located in the Town of Red Hook, New York.

Ulster County - The Town of New Paltz Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Jewett Farms Subdivision - Lot Line Revision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal by Jewett Farms LLC for the following: (1) a lot line revision to "swap" a 12.45 acre parcel, owned by the Huguenot Historical Society (HHS) but farmed by the applicant, with a 25.64 acre parcel of land owned by Jewett Farms but used by HHS as part of its trail network; and (2) to subdivide the resulting 91.79 acre parcel to create two lots: a farm parcel (Lot 1) , with the existing residence and farm buildings, located largely in the Village of New Paltz, and a remainder land parcel with one proposed single family house (Lot 2), located largely in the Town of New Paltz, with access from Huguenot Street.

Both parcels are proposed to continue to be used for agricultural purposes. Existing conservation easement will be modified to allow the transfer of one development envelope for a single family residence from the adjoining Kholsa property to Lot 2 of the Jewett subdivision. An existing treeline will be maintained to buffer any potential visual impact of the proposed house on views from Huguenot Street or the historic Hasbrouck property. The project is located on Huguenot Street in the Town and Village of New Paltz, New York.

Westchester County - The Village/Town of Mount Kisco Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Northern Westchester Hospital Emergency Room Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal by the applicant, Northern Westchester Hospital Association, to expand its emergency department. The proposed action would involve the demolition of an existing 7,680 square foot medical office building and demolition of the existing south parking lot. New construction would include: (1) a 21,118 square foot expansion of the emergency department and a 17,625 square foot second floor shell (the future to be determined); (2) a loop road resulting in the ability to access the emergency room directly from Moore Avenue as well as from East Main Street; (3) an interim 160 space south parking lot and 60 space retail parking lot, and 11 additional spaces replacing parking spaces in lots at the southern end of the hospital campus; (4) a 457 space south structured parking garage on the site of the existing south parking lot; (5) 34 gravel parking spaces adjacent to Boltis Street to be used for contractor parking during construction and as a paved parking lot for use after construction; and (6) redesigned parking area along the East Main Street and Moore Avenue frontage with an increased landscaped buffer to shield the view of cars.

The majority of the 19.2 acre Northern Westchester Hospital campus is located within the Hospital (H) zoning district. However, portions of the campus are also located within the General Retail (GR) and the One and Two Family Residence (RT-6) zoning districts. The proposed project would be limited to 16.56 acres of the campus within the H and GR districts.

The project is located at the Northern Westchester Hospital at 400 East Main Street in Mount Kisco, New York.
