Conditioned Negative Declaration

Rockland County - The Rockland County Department of Highways, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Replacement of Montebello Road Bridge over the Mahwah River 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 replacement of the existing Montebello Road Bridge (Bridge Identification Number 3346120) which was severely impacted by Hurricane Irene in August 2011. The bridge and roadway were closed to all traffic for concern of public safety as a result of washout of the supporting wall backfill. The storm caused irreparable damage that compromised supporting foundations beyond reasonable repair or rehabilitation efforts. Based on its current condition, the age of the structure, and advanced deterioration of steel material, the project will replace the existing bridge carrying Montebello Road over the Mahwah River in its entirety.

The project objective is to provide a safe and reliable crossing at this location having adequate structural capacity and meeting current standards for safety to allow reopening of Montebello Road. Proposed work includes removal of the existing single-span stringer bridge, walls and foundations and replacement with a new single-span bridge comprised of concrete girders supported on new abutments with retaining walls founded on deep-pile supported foundations. Approach work includes new asphalt pavement and provision of a fully compliant pedestrian sidewalk. The bridge alignment will be set on the existing horizontal and vertical alignment with minor adjustments for standard lane widths. No new travel lanes are proposed. Two (2) fee acquisitions and two (2) permanent easements have been obtained for the work and to accommodate utility pole relocation. The project is 100 percent Rockland County funded.

The project is located on Montebello Road at the intersection with Lake Road in Montebello, New York.

The conditions are:

Measures to mitigate loss of the bridge determined to have character defining features worthy of eligibility for listing on the National Register of Historic Places have been included and are being coordinated with the State Historic Preservation Office through the Section 106 process (i.e. new stone veneer, aesthetic railing finish, stone coping/capping).

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Westchester County - The Mount Vernon City Council, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed RMF-SC Multi-family Senior Citizen Housing Floating Overlay Zone. The Final EIS is available from the contact person listed below.

The action involves the adoption of the proposed Multi Family Senior Citizen Floating Overlay Zone (RMF-SC) Code Amendments with the corresponding repeal of the RMF-SC-25 zone, Rezoning and Zoning Map Amendments to apply the RMF-SC floating overlay on all listed parcels. The RMFSC, Multifamily Senior Citizen Housing Floating Overlay Zone will replace a zoning district adopted in 1996 entitled the "RMF-SC-25 Multifamily Senior Citizen Residence District" with permitted uses and associated provisions identified in Section §267-17, Section §267a and Section §267c of the City of Mount Vernon's Zoning Code (and discussed further in Section 4.1.1.2 of this Draft GEIS). With the adoption of the Proposed Action, six of the eight properties currently under the RMF-SC-25 designation will have the zoning designation applicable to adjacent properties applied (listed below), and then the new RMF-SC Floating Overlay Zone will be superimposed. The City's official zoning map will be amended accordingly. The project is located in the City of Mount Vernon, New York.
