ENB - Region 3 Notices 5/15/2013

Negative Declaration

Putnam County - The Town of Kent Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kent Materials Amended Site Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the approval of an amended site plan for Kent Materials, Route 52, Town of Kent, to add two fully enclosed sand/salt storage buildings which necessitate a substantial modification to the original grading plan, and which has caused the proposed project to be reclassified as a Type I Action due to the amount of additional land disturbance. In addition to the two sand/salt buildings, future tenants are still expected to be local tradesmen (electricians, plumbers, HVAC contractors, garage door installers, excavating contractors, masons, carpenters and other similar building contractor establishments, etc.) that would utilize the contractor buildings for offices, and storage of equipment and materials pursuant to the original Mountain View Realty Site Plan Approval. The project is located in the Town of Kent, Putnam County, New York.
