Negative Declaration

Albany County - The Town of Bethlehem Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kendall Square - Site Plan Approval will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application for a site plan approval for a 16.96 ± acre parcel of land. The applicant is seeking site plan approval to construct up to 40,000 square feet of commercial space and up to 110 residential dwelling units. This project identifies with the stated goal of the Comprehensive Plan of encouraging compact, mixed use commercial and residential development in identified commercial centers and hamlet centers throughout the Town. The property is located in a Hamlet (H) Zoning District and the proposed mixed use project is permitted subject to site plan approval by the Planning Board. No State regulated resources, such as freshwater wetlands regulated under 24 ECL, are present on the site. All impacts to the waters of the United States have been mitigated by developing a project design that minimizes impacts and by constructing wetlands. The United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACOE) has issued the necessary authorizations required by the Nationwide Permit program for the project. The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has reviewed the applicant's traffic study which included proposed trip generation rates, generation and distribution patterns, and an analysis of the existing and the proposed traffic conditions. The NYSDOT has concurred with the results of the study and with the proposed access locations. The site is served by municipal water and sanitary sewer system. The existing drainage pattern and discharge points will be retained. A full Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) was required per the requirements included in the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges. The project is located on the northeast corner of Elsmere Avenue (NY Route 335) and Feura Bush Road (NY Route 910A) in the Town of Bethlehem, New York.
