Negative Declaration

Putnam County - The Town of Putnam Valley Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Gentile Subdivision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, Joseph Gentile, for a 2 lot subdivision and the construction of a 4 bedroom residence, septic system, water well, asphalt driveway and stormwater improvements on proposed Lot 2. The subject property consists of 3.47 ± acres of land and is located within the Town's R-1 Zoning District.

The subject property currently contains a 3 bedroom residence and detached garage and, therefore, the proposed subdivision will result in a net increase of one single-family residence. Proposed Lot 1 will consist of 1.143 ± acres of land and will contain the existing 3 bedroom residence, septic system, water well, and driveway. Proposed Lot 2 will consist of 2.327 ± acres of land and will contain the proposed 4 bedroom residence, septic system, water well, and driveway. The project is located at 199 Wood Street, Putnam Valley, New York.
