Positive Declaration

Broome County - The Town of Union Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Unified Zoning Ordinance may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The desired outcome of the project is to create a series of development regulations that are easily understood by the public and development community and easy for the Town and Villages to administer and enforce, while at the same time accomplishing the planning and development goals and objectives stated in the recently adopted Unified Comprehensive Plan. The unified zoning ordinance should accomplish, among other things, the following:

• Creating a more consistent relationship between the Zoning Ordinance and the recently adopted Unified Comprehensive Plan, the New York State Building Code, sign regulations, and other development regulations of the town and villages.
• Creating regulations that respond to current planning and design practices, and are appropriate to the development patterns and context of the town and villages.
• Creating a process aimed at improving the administration and enforcement of the regulations by more clearly defining the development policies and requirements of the municipalities.
• Making the ordinance more "user friendly" and predictable while not creating unnecessary obstacles to neighborhood sensitive development within the town and villages that is both reasonable and appropriately scaled.
• Creating regulations that will stimulate and attract additional investment to the community by requiring high quality development as existing marginal land uses are replaced.
• Streamlining the review process and procedures of the ordinances.

The project is located throughout the Town of Union, New York.
