Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

The Final EIS can be reviewed online at the applicant's consultant website: www.timmillerassociates.com or at the Town of Clarkstown web site: www.town.clarkstown.ny.us/html/planning.html.

The action involves the applicant, Kury Homes, Inc., intention to subdivide the project site, install the required infrastructure, and develop single family residential dwellings in response to a continued demand for high quality housing in the Town of Clarkstown and Rockland County.
