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 being sought at this time will determine such factors as maximum appropriate building envelope for the placement of the home on the lot, the driveway location, and the area of disturbance for each lot. 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 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.

The project is located on Mountain Farm Road and Camp Comfort Road in the Village of Tuxedo Park, New York.
