Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
Suffolk County - The Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Patchogue, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Clare Rose Multi-Family Residential Development. The Final EIS is available for public review at the office of the contact person, the Patchogue-Medford Library, 54-60 East Main Street, Patchogue, New York 11772 and on the Village of Patchogue's website at: www.patchoguevillage.org. Written comments on the FEIS will be accepted by the contact person listed above until 4:00 p.m. on September 27, 2010.
The action involves an application by RAM Associates, LLC to the Incorporated Village of Patchogue to construct a multi-family residential community, Clare Rose, with up to 214 units on a 12.15 ± acre site. The proposed action includes applications for a change of zone from the D5 Business District to the D2 Business District for one parcel and a Special Permit for the proposed multi-family use for all parcels situated within the E Industrial District and D2 Business District. The proposed action presented in the Draft EIS included the construction of 214 multi-family units. However, a reduced-density alternative of 163 units, which meets the applicant's objectives and minimizes potential environmental impacts, was presented as the preferred alternative in the Draft EIS. The Final EIS identifies the 163 unit plan as the revised proposed action. This action significantly increases open space. The proposed action also includes parking areas, walkways, and landscaping on the subject site. In addition, a portion of the planned Riverwalk along the Patchogue River (which permits public access along the river) would be constructed, and portions of Clare Rose Boulevard, South Street, and Railroad Avenue would be improved. The project is generally bounded by South Street to the north, Railroad Avenue to the east, Sephton Street to the south, and the Patchogue River to the west in the Incorporated Village of Patchogue, New York.
