ENB - Region 1 Notices 6/22/2011

Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The Planning Board of the City of Glen Cove, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village Piazza Subdivision Site Plan and Special Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the redevelopment of the existing Village Square outdoor retail shopping center of 36,500 square feet. The redevelopment, which is comprised of four to five story buildings, will provide 27,500 square feet of ground floor retail floor area and 142 one and two bedroom residential units available for lease, mostly on the upper floors. The proposal provides integrated garage and surface parking and will take advantage of the location of a currently underutilized City parking structure directly adjacent to the north. Central to the proposal will be an expanded plaza that like the current Village Square will be made available to the City for community events such as concert series and farmer's markets. The project is located immediately west of the intersection of Glen Street, Bridge Street and School Street in the City of Glen Cove, New York.

Suffolk County - The Huntington Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Convenience Market Revisions to Zoning Code (Local Law No. 20-2011) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of legislation to define convenience markets in the Zoning Code and to establish regulations regarding the permitted locations and site features needed to operate them. Convenience markets will be permitted and/or special uses in the C-4, C-5, C-6, and C-7 commercial zoning districts. The legislation provides different standards for convenience markets depending on whether they are freestanding or in shopping and hamlet centers. Freestanding convenience markets have use-specific lot area and loading area requirements, and setback regulations depending on the hours of operation. A parking requirement for convenience markets was also added to the Zoning Code. The project is located throughout the Town of Huntington, New York.

A public hearing will be held on June 23, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. in the 5th floor Legislative Chamber, 1 West Street, Mineola, NY 11501.

The action involves the subdivision of a 5.2 acre parcel into five single family residential lots. Access to the new homes will be provided by a single roadway that intersects Woodbury Road and will run along the eastern property boundary. Three of the homes will be located on the western side of the roadway and the remaining two on the eastern side. The parcel is located with in a Special Ground Water Protection Area. Sanitary waste water will be handled by on site sanitary systems. Water supply will be provided by the local water district.

Two drainage reserve areas will be included on site along the southern boundary and within the southwestern portion of the site to accommodate surface water runoff following completion of construction.
