Positive Declaration

Nassau County - The Town Board of the Town of Oyster Bay, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Country Pointe at Plainview may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop the 143.25 acre subject property with 890 units of multi-family housing and 114,330 square feet of commercial space. The subject premises are situated in Office Building (OB) and R1 1A One-Family Residence districts, and currently contain quasi-municipal, not-for-profit. and recreational uses. In order to accommodate the proposed uses, the applicant has petitioned for re-zoning to RMF 16 Multi-Family Residence, RSC 25 Multi-Family Senior Residence, and General Business (GB) districts. Relief from the dimensional requirements of the proposed multi-family zoning districts would be needed with respect to building height, maximum number of units per building, minimum distance between buildings, and minimum garage setback. Approximately 44 acres of the site would be dedicated to the Town of Oyster Bay for park and recreation use. The proposed development plan also requires modification of restrictive covenants which were established when the zoning of a portion of the property was changed to OB district in 1997. The project is located on the southwest corner of the intersection with Old Country Road and Round Swamp Road in Plainview, New York.
