ENB - Region 4 Notices 10/5/2011

Negative Declaration

Columbia County - The Town of Ancram Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Town of Ancram Zoning Ordinance will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a set of amendments to the Town of Ancram Zoning Ordinance. These amendments, developed by the Zoning Review Commission are designed to help make the Town of Ancram Zoning Ordinance consistent with the 2010 adopted Town of Ancram Comprehensive Plan. The Plan contains a variety of recommendations oriented to improve the Zoning Ordinance in Town. These amendments include changes to the site plan review process and standards (new Section XIII), and addition of process and standards for open space conservation subdivisions (updated Section V (I)). The new Section XIII authorizes the Planning Board to approve site plans, establishes procedures and criteria for commercial uses, major subdivisions and minor subdivisions, establishes a simplified site plan review process for single family and two-family dwellings that are not part of a subdivision and for agricultural and agri-tourism uses. Updated Section V(I) replaces the "residential cluster development" section in the zoning and provides for a design process that results in 60% open space, reduced lot sizes, flexible parcel and road layout, and standards for open space to be applied for major subdivisions. The project is located throughout the Town of Ancram, New York.
