Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Putnam County - The Village of Brewster, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Village of Brewster Draft Comprehensive Plan Update. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on April 8, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Village of Brewster Village Hall, 50 Main Street, Brewster NY 10509. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until April 30, 2015. The Draft EIS is available from the Village of Brewster Village Hall, 50 Main Street, Brewster NY 10509 and on line at: www.brewstervillage-ny.gov.

The action involves the adoption of the Village of Brewster Comprehensive Plan which primarily focuses on methods to achieve economic revitalization and stimulation, particularly in the core downtown area of the village, in the existing B-1 Zoning District which includes Main Street to Marvin Avenue and extends from the MTA commuter rail station to the East Branch of the Croton River, a world renowned trout fishing destination. The Comprehensive Plan encourages the development of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) for this area. The Comprehensive Plan also sets forth additional modifications for the other business and commercial districts within the Village of Brewster as well as additional traffic, pedestrian, and public parks improvements. The project is located in the Village of Brewster, New York.
