Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Orange County - The Town of Montgomery Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Taylor Biomass Gasification Project. Copies of the Final EIS are available from the Offie of the Town of Montgomery Clerk, 110 Bracken Road, Montgomery, NY and the Josephine-Louise Public Library 5 Scofield Street Walden, NY. The Final EIS is also available on line at: www.townofmontgomery.com.

The action involves a proposal by Taylor Holdings Group, Ltd, (Taylor) to expand upon an existing, permitted, recycling facility located in the Town of Montgomery. The proposed facility would handle, daily, 950 tons of municipal solid waste, construction and demolition material and 100 tons of wood waste, which after sorting and removal of recyclable materials, would be used to produce a syngas to power a small onsite electric generating facility. In furtherance of the proposed project, Taylor petitioned the Town Board of the Town of Montgomery, in Orange County, seeking to amend the Town's Zoning code and Zoning Map. Taylor has petitioned the Town Board to consider several modifications to the Town of Montgomery Zoning Law, including modifications to the Bulk Requirements for Composting, Recycling, Handling and Recovery Facilities and other related definitions and provisions to permit the proposed biomass gasification-to-energy project. Taylor also requested that the Town Board rezone 13.3 acres within the project site from Residential Agriculture (RA-3) to Interchange Development (ID) in order to bring the whole project area within the ID zone. In response to the Taylor application the Montgomery Town Board has proposed a local law which would provide for a biomass gasification to energy project by special permit in an overlay district as designated by the Town Board. The project is located at 350 Neelytown Road in the Town of Montgomery, New York.
