Conditioned Negative Declaration

Ulster County - The Marbletown Zoning Board of Appeals, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rondout Valley United Methodist Church Appeal will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. There will be a 30 day public comment period commencing with the date of this notice.

The action involves the construction of a permanent internally lit, two-sided, 32 square foot freestanding sign at the intersection of Schoonmaker Lane and State Route 209, that will sit approximately 64 feet back from the center of and perpendicular to Route 209.The top portion of the sign is proposed to have two, 8 foot fluorescent bulbs in the back of a translucent white cover with black lettering containing the church name and logo and the bottom message board portion will contain 3-17 character rows of 5.5 inch high red LED letters for church announcements. The applicant slates in the application that the sign is proposed to be lit "24 or less" hours per day. The project is located at 25 Schoonmaker Lane in Marbletown, New York.

The conditions are:

  1. The proposed LED lighting portion of the sign, if any, shall use bulbs that produce only white light for the text rather than red light. The LED letters shall not exceed 5.5 inches in height and the use of the LED lit portion of the sign shall be limited to text only.
  2. The proposed top portion of the sign, if lit, shall have an opaque background that is a dark shade of brown that blends into the surrounding natural landscape leaving only the letters and the small church emblem lit. All other portions of the sign faces shall use a background that is the same shade of brown used for the opaque background.
  3. The sign's backlighting shall illuminate the sign's letters and proposed church emblem but not the sign's background.
  4. The sign cabinet, pedestal and monument shall be a dark shade of brown that blends into the surrounding natural landscape and complements the sign's faces.
  5. The non LED portion of the sign may be lit either directly or indirectly with white bulbs and such lighting must comply with the express illumination provisions in the Town Sign Regulations. The lighting shall not spill over into adjacent properties or into the eyes of motorists. The ends, and not the faces, of the sign shall be shielded to block any light emanating from the ends of the sign so as to screen neighbors' views of such light and prevent the light from exiting the top of the sign.
  6. The proposed clearing of brush shall be limited to only enough brush removal to allow the sign to be viewed from 400 feet south on Route 209 and no further. At distances beyond 400 feet the light can be detected but the message is not legible resulting in unnecessary visual pollution. The applicant shall adequately screen the view of the sign from the residential structures along Schoonmaker Lane if the occupants properly file a complaint with the Marbletown Code Enforcement Officer concerning impacts resulting from the lighting associated with the sign and he determines that the sign as constructed and used is adversely impacting these occupants. The Marbletown Code Enforcement Officer shall determine whether the aforesaid view of the sign is adequately screened. Such determination shall be reasonable.
  7. No LED message sign lamp may be illuminated to a degree of brightness that is greater than necessary for adequate visibility from a distance of 80 feet from the sign as determined by the Marbletown Code Enforcement Officer. The nit measurement for the brightness setting for the LED lights in the sign shall not exceed level 2 or 2,000 nits at night. The nit measurement for the brightness setting for the LED lights in the sign shall not exceed level 8 or 8,000 nits during the day. The applicant shall ensure that the brightness sensor and settings are programmed to comply with this condition.
  8. The sign may not be lit during the hours of 10 p.m. until dawn.
  9. The height of the sign shall not exceed 6 feet 6 inches from the ground.
  10. The sign face shall be no larger than the 32 square feet requested by the applicant and may be two-sided for a total of 64 square feet of sign face.
