Suffolk County - The Village of Mastic Beach Village Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Adoption of Village of Mastic Beach Zoning Code. A public hearing on the Draft GEIS will be held on June 26, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. at the Town Senior Nutrition Center, 369 Neighborhood Road, Mastic Beach, NY 11951.

The action involves the initial adoption of the Village of Mastic Beach Zoning Code and Village of Mastic Beach Zoning Map. The proposed zoning includes eight zoning districts and one floating zoning district. The zoning districts are comprised of three residential districts, one residential/business district, three business districts (including the floating zone), one industrial district, and one waterfront district. Each district has use and dimension regulations established in the Village of Mastic Beach Zoning Code. The proposed zoning code was developed to better reflect the existing land use, density and dimensional characteristics of parcels within the Village, as well as to encourage orderly development consistent with the vision of the Village. It is noted that no specific development proposal is considered by the proposed action; rather, the proposed action is limited to the establishment of a new zoning code for the Village. The project is located throughout the Village of Mastic Beach, New York.
