Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Village of East Hampton Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Map of the Little Plain will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the subdivision of 20.8325 acres into five (5) residential lots. The site is located between the area historically known as the "The Great Plain" extending east to Hook Pond and "The Little Plain" extending west to Georgica Road. This field served as a common area for early settlers and has since existed as an agricultural field. The project is located at Apaquogue Road and Lilly Pond Lane in the Village of East Hampton, New York.

Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Nassau County - The Nassau County Planning Department, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 2009 Nassau County Master Plan may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on September 3, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. at the First Floor Legislative Chamber, 1550 Old Country Road, Mineola, NY 11501. The action involves the proposed adoption of the draft Nassau County Master Plan for New Suburbia as the County's official comprehensive plan. The draft Plan is a blueprint for the County's future centered on the concept of "New Suburbia." The plan for New Suburbia offers policies to preserve and enhance Nassau's assets including its single family homes, schools, parks and open spaces, waterfronts and beaches. At the same time it provides an action plan for addressing tough problems including high property taxes, retention of young people, traffic congestion, pockets of poverty, and environmental sustainability. The draft Plan presents the County's vision through a set of policies and recommendations for the entire County (approximately 287 square miles) rather than directly undertaking any specific development program or project. The adoption of the County's Master Plan is a legislative action that is generic in nature, not-site specific, and does not directly result in physical changes to the environment. The project is located throughout Nassau County, New York.
