Rockland County - The Stony Point Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed PW Zoning District Amendments to Allow Waterfront Mixed-Use Developments will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves proposed amendments which would allow a mixed use waterfront development comprised of single-family attached, detached and multifamily residences, retail, restaurant, office, marina uses and public esplanade uses on riverfront properties of at least 5 acres. It is noted that a broad range of uses are already authorized within the waterfront area including marinas; public recreation; educational centers; municipal community centers; fuel and oil storage; membership clubs; fish, bait, tackle, small boat and sail board shops; membership clubs (including restaurants); bed and breakfasts (up to four rooms). Because of this, the primary effect of the legislation will be the authorization of residential units at up to 10 units/acre, and retail and office uses. Height will remain the same at 45 feet. Development coverage will increase from 50% to 75%. Floor Area Ratio will go from 0.40 to unlimited (3.0 based on coverage and height). Front yard/setback will be reduced from 50/50 feet to 10/0 feet (all land fronts on River which has mandatory 50 foot setback); side setback (one side/total) from 50/100 feet to 25/40 feet; side yard/rear yard from 25/30 feet to 10/50 feet; street frontage from 100 feet to 0 feet. The intent of the legislation is to encourage existing owners of struggling marina uses to be able to incorporate a residential, retail and public access element to draw economic development and tourism to the Town of Stony Point. The amendments are supported by the Town's Comprehensive Plan. The project is located in the Town of Stony Point , New York on the Hudson River Waterfront.
