ENB - Region 3 Notices 01/20/2010

Negative Declaration

Putnam County - The Town of Southeast Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Brewster Honda Vehicle Preparation and Service Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a 36,120 square foot vehicle preparation and service building, and associated outside storage, for Brewster Honda on the 13.9 acre former Dills Best Lumber Yard, located primarily in the Town of Southeast, with a small portion in the Village of Brewster. The proposed action involves disturbance to 32,670 square feet of wetland buffer, of which 28,750 square feet were previously disturbed. The property is currently zoned R-60 and GC-2 in the Town of Southeast. As part of the proposed action, the applicant proposes to rezone the entirety of the GC-2 zoned property, and a portion of the R-60 zoned property, to OP-2 to accommodate the proposed use. Upon referral from the Town Board, the Planning Board considered this rezoning measure and instead recommended that the property be rezoned to NB-1, along with certain text changes. The Town Board will open a public hearing on the proposed rezoning on Thursday, January 21, 2010 at 7:30 p.m., at the Southeast Civic Center, 1360 Route 22, Brewster, NY. The project is located at 2-4 Allview Avenue in Brewster, Town of Southeast, New York.

Westchester County - The Pelham Manor Village Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Pelham Manor B3 District Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Village of Pelham Manor proposes to readopt the amendment to rezone the existing B3 Zoning District to B2. The intent of this rezoning is to further the Village's goal of creating a unified retail center in the Village of Pelham Manor. The proposed zoning amendment also includes some text revisions to the B2 Zoning District that will integrate appropriate permitted uses from the B3 District to the B2 District and an update of the previously adopted sunset provisions to have them apply to this amendment as well.

In addition, there are currently no mapped Industrial Districts within the Village of Pelham Manor. As such, this amendment also seeks to amend to zoning text to eliminate any references to the former Industrial District, which is no longer in effect in the Village of Pelham Manor. The project is located in the B3 and B2 Zoning Districts of the Village of Pelham Manor, New York.

Contact: John Pierpont, Village of Pelham Manor, 4 Penfield Place, Pelham Manor, NY 10803, Phone: (914) 738-8820.
