Sullivan County - The Town of Tusten, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Zoning Code Amendments - 2013 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the amending of the Zoning Law of the Town of Tusten, specifically amending Definitions; Zoning Map; Supplementary Regulations Pertaining to Specific Uses. The proposed action also includes an addition to the Zoning Law that includes the following provisions-Exotic Animal and Exotic Animal Sanctuaries. Specifically, the proposed law enacts more relevant and concise definitions that reflect new and emerging uses. These definitions are, in turn, linked in a succinct manner to the Schedule of District Regulations and supplementary regulations that allows the Town of Tusten, via the Code Enforcement Officer (CEO), more clarity and tangibility for review and enforcement of requirements and restrictions when required. The proposed law also includes specifications to enhance public safety by requiring new dimensional requirements for new driveways to facilitate effective egress and ingress of emergency vehicles. The proposed law establishes new criteria for accessory living quarters and renewals for such uses and it establishes standards and criteria for solar and wind energy systems, criteria for the use of cargo containers as storage uses in addition to Portable on Demand (POD) containers. The proposed law also provides threshold criteria for clear culling consistent with the revised definition noted above. Finally, the proposed regulations integrate the text of separate local laws on camping and sleeping accommodations within the Section 6.2 of the revised zoning focusing on Campgrounds, Use of Recreation Vehicles (RV) and Camping.

The project is located throughout the Town of Tusten, New York.
