ENB - Region 1 Notices 09/01/2010

Positive Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town Board of the Town of Brookhaven, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Land Use and Implementation Plan for the Ronkonkoma Hub Transit-Oriented Development may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the proposed adoption and implementation of the Ronkonkoma Hub Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) which encompasses an approximately 53.73 ± acre area that includes the portion of the Long Island Railroad's Ronkonkoma Train Station located within the Town of Brookhaven. In order to guide the redevelopment of this area to achieve a number of planning goals, the Town of Brookhaven is preparing a comprehensive land use plan, Land Use and Implementation Plan for the Ronkonkoma Hub Transit-Oriented Development, for the TOD which will include a preliminary development layout and land use mix and also identify development opportunity sites. The plan will also include a proposed new zoning district to be added to the Brookhaven Town Code and suggest a number of re-zonings to implement the Plan. The project area is bounded by Union Avenue to the north; Village Plaza Drive to the east; the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) tracks (Ronkonkoma Branch) to the south; and County Road 29 (Ronkonkoma Avenue), Garrity Avenue, and Hawkins Avenue to the west; in the hamlet of Ronkonkoma, Town of Brookhaven, New York
