Negative Declaration

Washington County - The Easton Town Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Stewart Major Resubdivision # 4-10 and MacMillan Major Resubdivision # 5-10 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the resubdivision of a previously approved plat (former Area #1) for the purpose of doubling the number of apartment units on each of two lots by adding one building to each lot. The resulting number of units on each lot will be 8 units, 4 units in each building. The existing well is to serve both apartment buildings on one lot. Individual septic systems for each apartment building are planned. The cumulative impacts of the addition of 8 residential units to the existing 8 units and 2 single family lots already approved on Area # 1 of this plat, are being considered. A New York State Department of Health review for the original plat for lots surrounding Area # 1 was dated April 20, 1978. The project is located in theTown of Easton CEA-2 which runs along the Battenkill extending south to Bulson Road. The original plat extended from Hegeman Bridge Road, west along both sides of Bulson Road to NYS Route 40, and includes property of the local BPOE - Greenwich, Lodge 2223 in the Town of Easton, New York.
