Negative Declaration

Albany County - The Town of Bethlehem Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Phillipin Kill Manor Planned Development District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application for a Planned Development District zoning district for 129.85 ± acres comprising seven parcels. Current zoning of the project site is Residential A and Residential Large Lot Zoning Districts. The applicant is seeking a PDD zoning classification, pursuant to §128-40 of the Town Zoning Code, to allow for the construction of three different styles of single-family homes (85 new dwelling units or lots). Two existing single-family homes currently exist on the site and will remain. Forty-nine (49) lots will consist of conventional single-family homes, similar to the Fisher Hollow and Cedar Ridge Subdivisions. Thirty (30) lots are proposed as twin homes that are similar to the existing Walden Fields located along Elsmere Avenue. The six (6) lots to be located along Orchard Street will consist of estate lots that are similar to the recently constructed large lot residences in the area

The proposal includes construction of public sanitary sewers, water distribution facilities, a storm water collection system, sidewalks, conservation of 35 ± acres around the Phillipin Kill stream corridor, and access from Fisher Boulevard to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Five Rivers via a 30 foot wide access easement from Fisher Boulevard. Approximately, 1.554 acres of federal regulatory wetland will be impacted and approximately 4.845 acres of appropriate wetland reclamation will be provided. A public hearing for the project has been scheduled for April 28, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at the Bethlehem Town Hall. The project is located on the north side of Orchard Street and west side of Fisher Boulevard in the Town of Bethlehem, New York.
