Public Hearing Rescheduled and Comment Period Extended

Nassau County - The Glen Cove City Council, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed City of Glen Cove Master Plan.

The action involves the adoption of the Master Plan of the City of Glen Cove and as a related action, the adoption of implementing code amendments including but not limited to amendments to the Zoning and Subdivision of Land chapters of the City Code. Glen Cove's current Master Plan is several decades old and the City's existing land use regulations do not adequately address present challenges and trends. The City is facing strong development pressures and needs a vision for addressing future growth. Also included in the environmental review will be the review of the temporary emergency land use controls. The project is located city wide in the City of Glen Cove, New York.
