Negative Declaration

Ulster County - The Town of Esopus Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Esopus Lakes Planned Unit Development (PUD) Dissolution (Zoning Map Amendment) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the rezoning of approximately 362 acres of land presently in an undeveloped PUD zone that was created in 1993; along with a proposal by Scenic Hudson Land Trust, Inc., to utilize a portion of this site for a privately-owned, publicly-accessible park and preserve, which is subject to approval of a special use permit in other zoning districts in the Town of Esopus, but is not a specifically permitted use provided for under the existing PUD zoning. The initial proposal by Scenic Hudson requested rezoning of that portion of the PUD currently owned by Scenic Hudson; and the scope of the proposed rezoning was expanded by the Town Board of the Town of Esopus to encompass the entirety of the PUD site. The Town proposes to repeal the PUD zone and redesignate the affected properties into either one of two residential districts (R-40 and RF-2) or into the General Commercial zone and Route 9W Overlay zone. The project is located at 132 River Road in Ulster Park, Town of Esopus, New York.
