Negative Declaration

Orange County - The Town Board of the Town of Warwick, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mid-Orange Correctional Facility Transfer and Subdivision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the transfer of the former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility property to the Town of Warwick and others through the Warwick Valley Local Development Corporation. The action includes initial subdivision of the site for the following purposes: 1) future development and redevelopment of the prison facilities area including creation of an initial 60 ± acre lot for anticipated development; 2) protected freshwater wetlands for transfer to a land trust; and 3) transfer of the remaining lands to the Town of Warwick for park, recreation and other municipal uses. The project is located on State School Road in the Town of Warwick, New York.

Ulster County - The Town of Esopus Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Scenic Hudson Land Trust, Inc. Land Conveyance will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the reconfiguration of six abutting tax parcels, under common ownership, into three smaller parcels and a larger remainder lot that is intended to be conveyed to a local not-for-profit open space preservation organization (Scenic Hudson Land Trust, Inc.). The project area encompasses 246 acres of land, and also three existing detached dwellings. Each of the smaller lots will encompass an existing dwelling. The remainder parcel to be acquired by Scenic Hudson, with over 216 acres of land, includes the most environmentally sensitive areas on the project site, including steep slopes, a state-regulated wetland and buffer area (H-3, Hyde Park quadrangle), isolated federal wetlands, and a hardwood forest habitat. The site is also been determined, based on field evidence, to be sensitive for cultural artifacts, and abuts a property that is on the National Register of Historic Places. The application subject of this Negative Declaration is an amendment of an earlier proposal by the same landowner to develop five of the six tax parcels as a residential subdivision, inclusive of the construction of town-specification roadways and development of on-site wells and septic systems. The revised application for the reconfiguration and conveyance to Scenic Hudson proposes no new building lots and no new construction. The project is located at the intersection of Old Post Road and Swarte Kill Road in the Town of Esopus, New York.
