Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Suffolk County - The Town of Southampton Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Riverside BOA Step II Nomination Study, Revitalization Action Plan and Zoning Map and Code Amendments. The Final GEIS is available from the Town of Southampton Town Clerk's Office, 116 Hampton Road, Southampton, NY; the Riverhead Free Library, 330 Court Street, Riverhead, NY and on line at:

The Town of Southampton was awarded a grant through the New York State Department of State for the preparation of a Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) 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 (RRAP), completed in July 2015, which provides a comprehensive planning framework for redevelopment of the Hamlet. As recommended by the RRAP, amendments to the Town of Southampton 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.
