Positive Declaration

Putnam County - The Putnam Valley Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Putnam Valley Fire Department - Station #1 Putnam Valley Volunteer Ambulance Corps may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, Putnam Valley Volunteer Fire Department (PVVFD), for the construction of a five bay, 27,400 ± square foot, fire station on 10.3 ± acres of land in the R-2 Zoning District. The adjacent property to the north, which consists of 4.0 ± acres, is owned by the Putnam Valley Volunteer Ambulance Corps (PVVAC) and is developed with a 13,700 ± square foot building and associated parking lot. In addition to the proposed 27,400 ± square foot fire station, the proposed action includes the construction of a parking area to accommodale 127 ± vehicles, shared access with the adjacent PVVAC, shared parking with the PVVAC, the construction of two (2) stormwater management areas, the installation of a sanitary sewage treatment system and water well for the PVVFD, lighting and landscaping. As a result of shared access and parking proposed between the PVVFD and PVVAC and given the fact that certain improvements required to facilitate the development of the PVVFD are proposed on the PVVAC parcel, the approved PVVAC Site Development Plan requires an amendment and the PVVAC is therefore a co-applicant. The project is located on Oscawana Lake Road in the Town of Putnam Valley, New York.

Rockland County - The Rockland County Legislature, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rockland County Comprehensive Plan may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the adoption of the 2010 Rockland County Comprehensive Plan (Plan). The Rockland County Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the County's future that will provide guidance for future planning and zoning municipal actions and serve as the basis for all County government planning and development issues for the next 30 years. The Plan will create a framework for future capital expenditure decisions by County government. It will also provide general recommendations on future County land use issues and policies to implement these strategies, address key matters under direct County jurisdiction, and identify specific land use and zoning conflicts among municipalities that should be resolved to allow for better functioning of zoning regulations. The Plan presents the County's vision through a set of policies and recommendations for the entire County (approximately 176 square miles) rather than directly undertake any specific development program or project. The project is located throughout Rockland County, New York.
