Onondaga County - The Village of Elbridge Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Planned Unit Development (PUD) Zone will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Village of Elbridge is in the process of updating its 2003 Comprehensive Plan in order to continue to develop land use planning solutions to enhance the overall visual, physical and economic quality of the Village. As part of the update the Village has identified a series of zoning recommendations and other actions including the adoption of a PUD ordinance. The PUD is a floating zone that may be created anywhere in the Village as long as certain criteria are met and will generally apply to larger parcels in the village. This District will encourage flexible site design and clustered forms of development to preserve community character, residential neighborhoods and significant features of the natural environment. The PUD District may be particularly used in any future development of large (multiple acre) properties in the Village. The use of a PUD does not exempt a project from permitting requirements of any other land use or environmental regulations. The project is located throughout the Village of Elbridge, New York.

Onondaga County - The Village of Elbridge Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Main Street Corridor Comprehensive Plan Update will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. This plan represents an Update of the 2003 Main Street Corridor Study. The intent of this Plan is to continue to develop land use planning solutions that will enhance the overall visual, physical and economic quality of the Village and in particular historic Main Street in light of changes in land use and business activities since 2003. The Plan makes recommendations in the areas of zoning and land use, and guidelines that will serve to protect and enhance the Village, particularly the Main Street Corridor. This updated Plan will be used by the Village Board, Planning Board and Zoning Board and the citizenry of the Village in making informed land use and planning decisions as issues and development projects are identified and discussed.

No impacts were identified during the SEQR review; the adoption of a Comprehensive Plan or Land Use Plan is generally protective of the environment. The attached sheet discusses several positive benefits related to adoption of the Main Street Corridor Comprehensive Plan Update related to land use and zoning; community character and function; traffic, pedestrian circulation and parking; and historic and aesthetic resources.

The project is located throughout the Village of Elbridge, New York.
