ENB - Region 3 Notices 4/4/2012

Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The Village of Tivoli Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law Amending and Restating Chapter 122, Flood Damage Prevention will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a proposed law which amends and restates Chapter 122, 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 inches 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 Village of Tivoli, New York.
