Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Dutchess County - The Town Board of the Town of Red Hook, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Adoption of Amendments to Chapter 143 of the Code of the Town of Red Hook entitled Zoning, Chapter 120 of the Code of the Town of Red Hook entitled Subdivision of Land, and the Comprehensive Plan.

The action involves amendments to the Town of Red Hook Zoning Law, Subdivision Law and Comprehensive Plan to implement the proposed Centers and Greenspaces Plan. The amendments will create two new zoning districts (the Agricultural Business District and the Traditional Neighborhood Development District), and will replace the Town's existing cluster regulations with provisions for conservation subdivisions, designed to more concertedly preserve the natural and scenic qualities of open space. The amendments will also add a new section on open space incentive zoning, in addition to other incidental changes necessitated by these amendments. In order to encourage village-scale density within the Traditional Neighborhood Development District, the law eliminates the density bonus for provision of central water in the R1 and R1.5 Districts. The amendments are designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of Town residents and to bring the Town's Zoning Law and Subdivision Law into conformance with the Town's Comprehensive Plan, Greenway Connections: Greenway Compact Program and Guides for Dutchess County Communities pursuant to Chapter 17-3 of the Town Code, and with recent changes to New York State Town Law.
