ENB - Region 1 Notices 8/10/2011

Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Southampton Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Local Law to Enact Changes to Zoning Code §330-248A Entitled "Gabreski Airport Commercial/Industrial Planned Development District" will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a local law to enact changes to zoning code §330-248A entitled "Gabreski Airport Commercial/Industrial Planned Development District" to facilitate construction of an office and industrial business park as envisioned by the Gabreski Airport Planned Development District (APDD) Master Plan, adopted in 2007.

As required by SEQRA, the potential environmental impacts of development under the APDD Master Plan were identified and evaluated in a Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS). The exact uses, number of future developers for the lease lots, yields or site design for future development was not known at that time; therefore the impacts evaluated in the GEIS were based on hypothetical full potential development of the overall 58.6 acre site. Since the APDD Master Plan and zoning code modifications were adopted in 2007, the property owner, Suffolk County, entered into a lease agreement with a single developer, Rechler @ Gabreski LLC, for the future development of 49.7 acres of the 58.6 acre APDD. Rechler @ Gabreski LLC prepared a specific site development plan intended to conform to the vision and guidance of the APDD Master Plan. In order to achieve the proposed development, Rechler @ Gabreski LLC requests specific amendments to §330-248A of the Town's APDD Code. Now that a site specific development plan has been prepared and all changes evaluated pursuant to SEQRA in an expanded EAF Part III, the adopted Findings Statement has been amended to reflect the site specific project and current site conditions and a negative declaration (determination of non-significance) has been issued related to the code amendments.

The project is located on an approximately 58.6 acres lot and occupies the west-central portion of the overall 1,451 ± acre Francis S. Gabreski Airport property; the subject site is located on the eastern side of County Route 31, on the north and south sides of Collins Way, on the west side of Sheldon Way and north of Cook Street in the Town of Southampton, New York.

Suffolk County - The Village of Port Jefferson Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 216B Main Street will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a conditional use and site plan approval of a proposed restaurant to be located in the northernmost first floor tenant space of an existing 2 story building. The proposed tenant space of 1,602 square foot is currently vacant and maintains an existing approval for a retail use. The building encompasses: a basement permitted for storage; a first floor with 4 tenant spaces totaling 8,721 square foot permitted for retail use; a second floor with 10 apartments and parking to the west. The proposed action does not include changes to the building's exterior or other uses or spaces within the building. The building is adjacent to a historic building and located within an archeosensitive area. The project is located at 216B Main Street in the Village of Port Jefferson, New York.
