Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Jones Beach State Park - East Mall Market and Games Area will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of the East Mall Market Building and a new games area in the location of the former Jones Beach Boardwalk Restaurant and on part of the former pitch and putt golf course. The Boardwalk Restaurant was demolished in 2004 and temporary food service vendors have been using the site during the summer season. The par 3 pitch and putt golf course has been closed since 2010.

The East Mall Market Building will provide a new food service and restrooms facility for park visitors, restoring the historic character by constructing a building that reflects the original design features. The building and decks are designed on piles to be elevated above the flood elevation. The games area site development will increase public use of a currently underutilized area with organized picnic and game spaces, as well as a spray pad. Game spaces will include a bocce and shuffleboard courts. The site development utilizes pervious surfaces and landscaping that restores native vegetation.

The project is located at the Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, New York.

Suffolk County - The Village of Port Jefferson Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 19 Shady Tree Lane Tree Clearing and Grading will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

Suffolk County - The Huntington Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Two-Family Residences in R-5 Zone will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of legislation by the Town of Huntington changing the process for establishing two-family homes in the R-5 Residence District. The Town Zoning Code previously allowed two-family residences as a permitted use in R-5 if they complied with all area requirements. If they did not comply with all area requirements, then they could apply for a special use permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals, along with the required area variances. This new legislation requires special use permits from the Zoning Board of Appeals for all two-family residence applications in the R-5 zone. In addition, all two-family houses will now require that one of the dwelling units in the building be occupied by the property owner. This was previously only a requirement of the special use permit and not of the permitted use. The project is located throughout the Town of Huntington, New York.
