Notice of Acceptance of Draft GEIS and Public Hearing

Suffolk County - The Town of Brookhaven Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Route 25A - Mount Sinai to Wading River Land Use Plan. A public hearing on the Draft GEIS will be held on July 17, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Brookhaven Town Hall, One Independence Hill, Farmingville, New York 11738. Written comments on the Draft GEIS will be accepted until July 27, 2012. The Draft GEIS is available from the Office of the Brookhaven Town Clerk, the following public libraries: Comsewogue, North Shore (Shoreham) and Port Jefferson and on line at: www.brookhaven.org.

The action involves a proposed Land Use Plan which will apply recommendations made by residents, business owners, community organizations, local leaders and Town of Brookhaven Planning staff during the visioning process to the areas included in the study area. The Land Use Plan details strategies, zoning recommendations and Town Code amendments that will guide future growth, preserve and enhance the individual character of each hamlet, and address issues of concern common to the corridor as a whole. Hamlet Center and Transition Overlay Districts are proposed throughout the Corridor which is anticipated to curb future sprawl and revitalize existing downtown areas. The project is located along Route 25A from Mount Sinai to Wading River in the Town of Brookhaven, New York.
