ENB - Region 1 Notices 5/22/2013
Nassau County - The Nassau County Legislature, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Museum of American Armor will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the County Legislature issuance of a negative declaration in conjunction with the approval of a long term use and occupancy permit with The Museum of American Armor, the Permittee, who plans to construct an approximately 25,000 square foot Museum of American. The facility will house such World War II armor as Sherman tanks, military vehicles and miscellaneous World War II memorabilia. Operational vehicles that will be on public display include an iconic Sherman tank, a Stuart light tank used extensively by the Marines during their Pacific campaigns, a potent 155 mm howitzer, reconnaissance vehicles that acted as armored scouts for American forces, anti aircraft guns and similar weapons that broke the back of the Axis powers during World War II. Other vehicles range from a classic LaSalle staff car in the markings of a Fleet Admiral to jeeps, weapons carriers and half tracks. The Museum would be located off Round Swamp Road, on the west side of the open field used for various events and overflow parking at Old Bethpage Village Restoration. Visitors could purchase an entry ticket at the Main Visitor Center or in the Museum. This ticket would be the same price as whatever the current admission is to OBVR and would include admission to the Museum of American Armor. All revenue from tickets sales at the Museum of American Armor would be forwarded to the County. No admission fees would be retained by the Museum. As the Museum would be located on County property, all designs and construction plans must be approved by Nassau County Parks, Recreation and Museums and the Nassau County Department of Public Works. The Museum of American Armor will be responsible for design, construction, operation and maintenance of the facility, at its own cost and expense. The project is located at east side of Round Swamp Road, on the west side of the open field near the entrance to the Old Bethpage Village Restoration, Old Bethpage, New York.

Nassau County - The Glen Cove Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed North Manor Estates will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application for the zoning map amendment of a 54.49 acre site from R-1 One Acre Residence District to R-1 One Acre Residence District with Estate Preserve (E) Floating Zone District (Estate District). Under the Estate District's regulations, the applicant is permitted to achieve the full density that would be permitted by the underlying zoning if the applicant was to demolish the existing historic buildings, but in a cluster subdivision design, and in exchange for the preservation of the historically important structures and contributory grounds in accordance with a "Preservation Plan," which includes Design Guidelines, a financial program, and other requirements for sustaining the historic structures' continuing maintenance and rehabilitation. The application includes a three-lot subdivision plan, preservation plan, design guidelines, and covenants and restrictions that will govern any future construction on the site. The subdivision will divide the site into Areas A, B and C. Design Guidelines will control any future development in Area B "contributory structures," and will guarantee that any future expansion or modification to existing site buildings will be in harmony with the historic and architectural character of the Mansion. A conceptual alignment plan and Design Guidelines have also been included with the Preservation Plan and will control the appearance, number of units, size, buffers, landscaping and overall character of future development in Area A - "non-contributory grounds." These future residential development in Area A will be limited to 40 units in structures not exceeding 120,000 square feet. Area C - "contributory grounds" will be left vacant and continue as the setting for the historic estate and be subject to significant deed restriction protections, including dedication to the City in the event that the use of Area B ceases. The project is located at the Corner of Dosoris Land and Lattingtown Road, Glen Cove, New York.

Suffolk County - The Town of East Hampton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Deer Management Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a deer management plan by the Town of East Hampton. The Town Board recognizes that the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in East Hampton has increased to a level that demands a comprehensive plan that includes an accurate estimate of the population, an analysis of its impacts and an outline for management. A survey conducted for the town in 2006 found that the deer population at that time was already in excess of the number that is generally acceptable to wildlife managers in the eastern United States. Anecdotal evidence and the general consensus of residents as well as indicators such as the number of deer/vehicle accidents, numbers of tick-borne diseases, private property damage and the field observations of native habitats by town staff suggest that the population has increased since 2006. The proposed deer management plan includes an assessment of the current deer population, possible actions to reduce the population, provisions for deer monitoring and public communication, potential adjustments to state and local laws and plans for long term management and monitoring. The project is located in the Town of East Hampton, New York.

Amended Negative Declaration
Nassau County - The Glen Cove Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Landing Cove LLC will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. This is an amended Negative Declaration. The Amended Negative Declaration examined the potential impacts of a change to the previously approved subdivision and site plan, whereby balconies on the rear facades of proposed buildings would be eliminated. The previous Negative Declaration was for subdivision of 9.43 acre tract into four lots to support an existing temple and 72 Condominium units in 7 buildings to be constructed in two phases. The property was previously rezoned from R-3A and R-6 Zoning classification to an R-5 district zoning classification. The existing Temple will remain. The project is located at the Corner of Hill Street and Cottage Row in the City of Glen Cove, Nassau County, New York.
