Dutchess County - The Town of Red Hook Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law Amending & Restating Chapter 77, Flood Damage Prevention will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed law which amends and restates Chapter 77, Flood Damage Prevention, to meet the minimum requirements for continued eligibility in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as set forth in paragraph 60.3(d) of the NFIP regulations. The law continues to require a permit for new development within areas of special flood hazard, but the technical standards for obtaining a permit have been increased to decrease the potential for flood damage. Residential and non-residential structures and all utilities are required to be elevated at least two feet above the base flood elevation. Manufactured homes must be adequately anchored and from 24" to 36" inches above the base flood elevation. Landowners can continue to apply to the Zoning Board of Appeals for variances from the technical standards. Variance criteria for historic structures have been modified to help preserve such structures. The project is located throughout the Town of Red Hook, New York.

The action involves a 10 lot subdivision with site plan approval pursuant to Section 17-3(C) and other applicable sections, for the future placement of a single-family home on each lot. The applicant is proposing to subdivide the property and sell the resulting lots individually; homes will be constructed by individual purchasers and not by the applicant.

The approved site plan will also address any mitigation or conditions required to address visual impacts, including any factors dealing with architectural features (for example, roof color, building height). In the future, each lot purchaser will have to obtain a further site plan approval for the placement of the proposed home, such approval to be issued by the Planning Board as well as the Board of Architectural Review pursuant to Section 17-3(B) of the Village Code and other applicable sections. Such home design will have to comply with any applicable conditions of the site plan to be issued at the time of subdivision approval, unless an amended site plan approval is issued for the lot.

The proposed plans show, for each lot, the features required by section 17-3(C), including proposed building envelope, driveway location, proposed limits of disturbance, areas of wetland disturbance (if any), locations of proposed retaining walls (if any), trees to be removed, proposed water and sewer lines, and proposed stormwater management features.

Each lot will be served by an individual driveway. Lots 1,4, 5, 6 and 7 will have access from Mountain Farm Road, Lots 2 and 3 will have access from Ivy Road, and Lots 8 through 10 will have access from Camp Comfort Road. Ivy Road will be shown on the subdivision map to be filed in the Orange County Clerk's office as a private road, and will continue to be privately owned.

The proposed action includes subdivision and site plan approval by the lead agency, as well as all local, regional and state approvals necessary to authorize the development of the site in accordance with the proposed development plans, and authorize construction of the structures and accessory development activities thereon. The proposed action and development may also require various permits and approvals from the other involved agencies.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Orange County - The Town of Deerpark Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Deerpark Village. The Final EIS is available from the Port Jervis Free Library and on line at: www.townofdeerpark.org/.

The action involves a proposed development which will provide townhouse-style homes averaging two bedrooms in size, for retired persons and other households over 55 years of age. The development is proposed in accordance with the previously approved Planned Residential Retirement Zoning District (PRRD) for this site. The development program for the site includes recreational amenities, and a 50,000 square foot retail shopping center intended primarily to service the daily food and services needs of the development residents. Two access roads off Wilson Road plus one emergency access off Cochecton Turnpike will provide ingress and egress to the community, and a system of internal roadways will provide circulation within the property. On-site recreation facilities will include a community club, swimming pool, tennis courts, and other recreation uses such as, but not necessarily limited to, bocci and racquet ball courts, horseshoe pits and sitting areas. In addition, hiking/jogging paths will traverse the site.

The development will be serviced by its own water system with water provided from a subsurface aquifer. Sanitary sewage will be treated in an on-site, state of the art, treatment facility. With the exception of a 0.23 acre disturbance for an emergency access road crossing to connect the southern and northern sections of the site, the wetlands on the site will be preserved and provided with a 100 foot buffer within which no development will occur. Disturbance of steep slope areas will be avoided to the maximum extent feasible. On-site detention facilities will be provided in order to attenuate the discharge of stormwater from the property so that the rate of runoff from the site will be the same or lower after development as it is under existing conditions, and also to protect water quality as required by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation standards and regulations.

The project is located on an approximately 243 acre site off Wilson Road northwest of its intersection with Route 42 in the Town of Deerpark, New York.
