Negative Declaration

Niagara County - The Niagara County Legislature, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Niagara Communities Comprehensive Plan 2030 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the preparation of a comprehensive plan for Niagara County and the adoption of the plan by the Niagara County Legislature. The plan, which is entitled Niagara Communities Comprehensive Plan 2030, serves to address five overarching goals: encouraging desirable and appropriate growth and development; strengthening the local economy; improving delivery of services; prioritizing and coordinating capital improvements; and improving the quality of life for Niagara County residents. The plan focuses on five key areas, which are organized as chapters in the plan: land use and environment, which includes transportation; economic development; county services, facilites and infrastructure; education; and public health and safety. Following an in-depth community outreach and public participation process, Niagara County developed a plan that provides an overall vision for the County; identifies issues and challenges as well as assets and opportunities at the local, subregional and county level; establishes goals and objectives for Niagara County, working in collaboration with its communities; and provides strategies and recommendations for achieving stated goals and objectives. The plan is intended as a guidance document to assist decision making in Niagara County. The final draft of the Niagara Communities Comprehensive Plan 2030 is available online at: www.niagaracounty.com/MapsReports.asp. The project is located county wide in Niagara County, New York.
