Dutchess County - The Town of Wappinger Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Old Troy Corners Subdivision and a Variance will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a Subdivision Plat Approval and a variance for the Old Troy Corners subdivision of one 3.725 ± acre parcel into two lots. The Project includes new wells and septic systems for each proposed lot. A portion of the property along Wheeler Hill Road is being dedicated to the Town. Due to the dedication of the above mentioned land, proposed Lot 2 will require an area variance because it would have 4,684 ± square feet less than the required 80,000 square feet.

Positive Declaration and Public Scoping
Rockland County - The Stony Point Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hudson River View Building D - Waste to Energy Facility may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on February 20, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rho Building, 5 Clubhouse Lane, Stony Point, NY. The Draft Scope is available on line at: www.townofstonypoint.org.
The action involves the installation of machinery within existing buildings for the conversion through chemical processes of carbon-rich biomass/municipal solid waste "feedstock" into a synthetic gas that can be utilized for the production of electrical energy, ethanol, and high-silica ash, which may be used in the production of concrete. The existing buildings were formerly used for the manufacturing of paint. The project includes the importation via truck of between 1,000 and 4,000 tons per day of waste/biomass. All handling of waste will be within the enclosed building. The site is part of the Kay-Fries State Superfund site. However, the monitoring and remediation of that site will not be disturbed by the change in use of this building. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has indicated that in their experience, the project sponsor would need to expand existing facilities to accommodate the tonnage capacity being sought. Related actions are issuance of required permits by NYS DEC - including Air State Facility, Solid Waste Management, and possible Title V and Multisector General Permit. The project is located on the east terminus of Holt Drive in the Town of Stony Point, New York.
