Dutchess County - The Village of Wappingers Falls Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Amendments to Section 151-3 entitled "Definitions" and Section 151-12 entitled "Signs" of the Village of Wappingers Falls Zoning Law, and Adoption of a Sign Design Manual will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of amendments to Section 151-3 entitled "Definitions" and Section 151-12 entitled "Signs" of the Village of Wappingers Falls Zoning Law under the provisions of Section 7-708 of the New York State Village Law and Article V of the Village of Wappingers Falls Zoning Law, and adoption of a Sign Design Manual. These individual actions are related to one another and are therefore evaluated together. The Zoning amendments will add a definition of "premises" to the Zoning Law. They will also add provisions for changeable copy signs, parted signs, and seasonal signs; will amend the existing provisions for accessory window signs, temporary signs, and sandwich signs; will increase the permitted sign area of signs in the Central Business (CB) District; will add provisions for signs in cases where two (2) or more establishments share a lot or parcel or are part of a shopping plaza, office or business center in the Neighborhood Business (NB) District and Office Business (OB) District; will amend the existing sign design criteria; and will add a subsection allowing the Planning Board to grant a waiver from the sign provisions under certain circumstances; in additional to other incidental changes necessitated by these amendments. The illustrated Sign Design Manual is intended to encourage effective signs that enhance the character of the Village's business districts. The Zoning amendments and Sign Design Manual will apply Villagewide, are designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of Village residents, and are consistent with the recommendations of the Village's adopted Comprehensive Plan and the Greenway Compact Program and Guides for Dutchess County Communities. The project is located throughout the Village of Wappingers Falls, New York.
