ENB - Region 8 Notices 03/10/2010

Negative Declaration

Monroe County - The City of Rochester Manager of Zoning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rezoning of Eastman Business Park East (EBP-E) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The City of Rochester and Eastman Kodak Company have partnered to plan the future of the former Kodak Park as the company downsizes, reduces its real estate holdings and transforms to the Eastman Business Park (EBP). Currently, the eastern portion of EBP (EBP-E), formerly known as Kodak Park East, consists of over 177 acres, and is the subject location for the proposed zoning district, Planned Development District-Eastman Business Park (PD#12). PD#12 is divided into three Sub-areas.

Four adjacent parcels are proposed to be rezoned to Open Space, O-S. The properties at 480, 500, 540 and 570 Maplewood Drive are currently owned by Kodak, zoned Transitional Parking, T-P, and developed with a parking lot. The parcels are adjacent to an overlook of the Genesee River on the Maplewood Trail with an astounding view.

The properties at 9 South Goodwill Street and 9 Woodside Street are lands formerly owned by Kodak that were donated to the City of Rochester to be used as a special assessment community parking lot to serve the businesses on West Ridge Road. They are currently zoned Transitional Parking, T-P and will be rezoned to C-3 district.

In addition, the City of Rochester intends to grant a franchise to Kodak to sell water within EBP to third party owners and purchasers of structures and land.

The City of Rochester will entertain an amendment to the Official Map to dedicate Eastman Avenue as public right-of-way.

The project is generally bounded by West Ridge Road, Dewey Avenue, Merrill Street, Maplewood Drive and Lake Avenue in the City of Rochester, New York.

Steuben County - The Town of Caton Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendments to the Town of Caton Zoning Law: Conditional Use Permit, Site Plan Review and Planned Residential Development District Review Processes will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves Amendments to Article 8, Planned Residential District, Article 9, Conditional Use Permit and Article 10, Site Plan Review to bring the review processes into compliance with state enabling law. This includes adding a reference to the agricultural data statement; expanding upon the State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) process; changing the area variance request process; eliminating the preliminary site plan step and requiring only a site plan with an option concept plan; and amending the section on "Expiration, Change of Use, Revocation and Enforcement" among other smaller changes for consistency. The project is located throughout the Town of Caton, New York.
