Conditioned Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Village of North Haven Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Revetment for the Property of 54LC, LLC 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 construction of a 180 lineal foot rock revetment along a portion of shoreline that, recently, has been subject to a significant amount of erosion. The proposal is a '"gap" project - meaning that the proposed revetment will lie between properties already protected by shoreline hardening structures.

The Applicant's consultant, First Coastal Corporation, has designed the proposal so that the armoring rock will be placed in a "points out'' configuration - resulting in less reflected wave energy onto the fronting beach than a revetment possessing a smooth surface. Furthermore, the applicant is proposing the placement of beach compatible fill (80% pebble/cobble, 20% sand) over the revetment and along the fronting beach at a rate of 2.2 cubic yard per linear foot (approximately 800 cubic yard, total). As indicated in documents provided by First Coastal Corporation, the proposed placement of fill is intended to offset the loss of material from the bluff and into the natural littoral system, pursuant to hardening the Applicant's shoreline.

The project is located at 54 Robertson Drive in the incorporated Village of North Haven, Town of Sag Harbor, New York.

The conditions are:

  1. The rock revetment should be constructed in a "points out". rough, configuration.
  2. The southern end or the proposed revetment should be woven into the existing revetment located on the adjacent property. Whereas, the northern end of the proposed revetment should be woven into the revetment proposed by the West Banks Association on the property to the immediate north.
  3. Beach transects will take place at 50 foot intervals in front of the applicant's property immediately prior and after construction in order to determine base beach elevation levels. Surveys and transects should be replicated in the Spring and Fall of every year and submitted to the Village, for 10 years following the completion of construction and issuance of a certificate of compliance.
  4. No less than 800 cubic yards of beach compatible fill (80% pebble/cobble and 20% sand) will be placed over the revetment and fronting beach. The fill must result in no less than 1 foot of cover over the revetment.
  5. Additional beach compatible fill must be placed over the revetment and beach within 90 days when either (a) 70% of the fill has been transported off site and/or (b) the revetment becomes exposed.
  6. Following the placement of beach compatible fill, beach grass must be planted 12 inch on-center, 3 plants per hole, over the revetment.
