Dutchess County - The Town of Dover Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law to Amend Chapter 145 of the Town Code, "Zoning" will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves proposal to amend the definitions of "Camp, Type 1," "Lodging Facility," and "Recreational Business" to clarify these types of uses in light of various proposed projects in the Town which fall, generally, into those categories. The Town Board of the Town of Dover further proposes to add a new definition of "Country Inn/Conference Center" to the Code. In addition, amendments to the supplementary regulations of Camp, Type 1 and new supplementary regulations for Recreational Business and Country Inn/Conference Center are also proposed in order to reduce potential adverse impacts from those uses.
The Town Board recognizes that the topographic landscape and rural character of the Town of Dover attracts outdoor recreational uses and country retreat centers. The purpose of these amendments is to provide use and design flexibility for the development of recreation oriented businesses on appropriate large properties; protect scenic and environmental resources; and promote tourism, recreation, and open space protection all in accordance with provisions of the Town's Master Plan.
The premises affected by this rezoning are those properties and businesses that are located in zoning districts which permit those uses defined in the Zoning Code as "Camp, Type 1", "Lodging Facility", and "Recreational Business", as well as those properties and businesses that are located in the Rural (RU) and Resource Conservation (RC) Zoning Districts.
