Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Huntington Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Huntington Station Gateway Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption by the Town of Huntington of the Huntington Station Gateway Plan, which covers three independent development projects in the NYS Route 110 corridor north of the Huntington Train Station that are related by their locational proximity, timing, and association with the same master developer, Renaissance Downtowns. The projects involve the redevelopment of commuter parking lots created by Urban Renewal and vacant and underutilized parcels in accordance with their existing zoning. One project would include a 4 story, 140 room, 83,296 square foot hotel and a 4 story, 100,880 square foot office building, with parking below both buildings for 581 vehicles. A second site plan would contain a 3 story, 63,151 square foot building with commercial uses on the first floor and 68 residential apartments above. Parking would be located behind the building on a surface lot and deck containing 137 spaces. The third project is a residential artist studios building of 3 stories, approximately 37,032 square foot, with 49 studio apartments and a common work and display area on the first floor. A Parking Management Plan was submitted to show how commuter parking spaces lost to redevelopment could be replaced by restriping other existing commuter lots or by building new parking lots on other municipally-owned land in the neighborhood. The project is located in Huntington Station, Town of Huntington, New York.

Positive Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Southampton Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Riverside Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) Revitalization Action Plan and Zoning Amendments may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The Town of Southampton was awarded a grant through the New York State Department of State (NYS DOS) for the preparation of a Brownfield Opportunity Area Step II Nomination Study for the Riverside Revitalization Plan. To facilitate implementation of many planning efforts that have been initiated by the Town in the past for the Riverside and nearby Flanders communities and the BOA Nomination Study, the Town entered into a Master Developer Agreement with Renaissance Downtowns (RD), to work with the Town in close partnership to develop plans, test market assumptions, obtain regulatory approvals, secure financing and successfully implement a multi-stage redevelopment program for Riverside. The Master Developer and the Town worked closely with the community to develop a Riverside Revitalization Action Plan, completed in July 2015, which provides a comprehensive planning framework for redevelopment of the Hamlet. As recommended by the RRAP, amendments to the Town Zoning Code are proposed.

The Riverside Overlay District proposes seven separate Overlay Zones affecting 468 acres in the Hamlet of Riverside. The highest development density would be permitted in the RO-1 Zone (Hamlet Center), which is located around the Riverside traffic circle. Other mixed-use zones, which will allow other mixes of uses, at different densities, and building heights, and which will serve different purposes, include: the RO-2 (Hamlet Neighborhood), RO-3 (Special), RO-4 (Gateway), RO-5 (Suburban), RO-6 (Waterfront), and RO-7 (Parkland) Zones. The proposed Overlay Zones (RO-1, RO-2, RO-3, RO-4, RO-5, RO-6 and RO-7) will encourage a mix of retail stores, restaurants, offices, service-related businesses, hotels, light industries, cultural and recreational facilities, advanced care facilities, and diverse living options, and place significant emphasis on the form of the buildings, streets and civic spaces (form-based code). The project is located in the Hamlet of Riverside, Town of Southampton, New York.
