ENB - Region 4 Notices 11/4/2015

Negative Declaration

Columbia County - The Livingston Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Suarez Family Brewery will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Suarez Family Brewery for a brewery for manufacture of beer, on-site consumption, and on-site sale for off-site consumption. The project is located on Route 9H in the Town of Livingston, New York.

Schenectady County - The Town of Glenville Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Zoning Map Amendment - Various Town Preserves and Open Spaces will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a zoning map amendment to change the zoning designation of the Alplaus Kill Natural Area, Andersen Preserve, and Christiana Preserve from "Suburban Residential" to "Public Park Lands." These three Town of Glenville-owned preserves/open spaces include six properties, constituting a total of 92.6 acres.

The current "Suburban Residential" zoning designation of these parcels reflects that they were all once privately-owned, before being donated to or acquired by the Town of Glenville. Rezoning these properties to "Public Park Lands" results in a proper zoning designation, given they're current public ownership.

The project is located on Glenridge Road, Onderdonk Road and the intersection of Van Buren Road and Swaggertown Road in the Town of Glenville, New York.

Greene County - The Greene County Industrial Development Agency, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Catskill Exit 21 Development Project (CAT21) may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The Greene County Industrial Development Agency (GCIDA) is planning to create a shovel-ready development site in the Town of Catskill, New York, located west of the I-87 Exit 21 interchange. The proposed development area is an approximately 62 acre site bounded by I-87 to east, NYS Route 23 to the south, the Catskill Creek to the west, and County Route 23B to the north. The site is currently undeveloped and bordered by several residential properties to the north along Route 23B. It is currently served by public water, and is included in a new sewer district which will provide sewer service to the site within the next few years. The GCIDA intends to conduct the environmental review of the CAT21 project as a Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) that evaluates existing conditions in a 104 acre study area that surrounds and incorporates the site, the potential impacts related to development, and the mitigation measures necessary to reduce potential impacts. The GEIS will evaluate several alternative master plans that may include a mix of destination entertainment, specialty retail, restaurants, business park/small distribution centers and/or housing, determine a preferred alternative, and establish thresholds for future development.
