Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Westchester County - The Town of Mount Pleasant Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Baker Residential Subdivision. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on September 9, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. at the Town of Mount Pleasant Town Hall. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until September 29, 2016. The Draft EIS is available from the Town of Mount Pleasant Town Hall and on line at: http://www.mtpleasantny.com/.

The action involves a proposal by Baker Residential Ltd. Partnership to construct the Baker Residential Subdivision, a cluster subdivision of 116 single family dwellings, with associated infrastructure and recreational amenities on approximately 165 acres of land. Each single family dwelling would be constructed within its own fee simple lot, with a minimum lot area of 8,000 square feet. The primary purpose of clustering the lots is to preserve as open space the more environmentally constrained portions of the property. The majority of the open space area, 96.0 ± acres, would be dedicated to a Land Trust organization, or in lieu of such organization, a Homeowners Association would be formed to own and maintain this open space. An additional open space area of 18.2 ± acres is proposed to be dedicated to the Town for parkland purposes. There would be two types of lots created for the 116 homes. 68 lots are currently planned as three-bedroom homes located on lots ranging from approximately 8,000 square feet to 18,800 square feet. 48 lots are currently planned as four bedroom homes located on lots ranging from approximately 20,200 square feet to 34,700 square feet. The three bedroom single-family homes would range in size from 2,587 to 2,937 square feet. The four bedroom single-family homes would range in size from 3,041 to 4,581 square feet. Access to the cluster subdivision is proposed from two locations. The main entrance would be from East Stevens Avenue at its intersection with Westlake Drive. The second entrance would be via Westlake Drive at its intersection with Halsey Place. The internal road network contains several looped streets. All buildings would be served by public water and sewer utilities. Stormwater runoff would be collected in a network of structures, pipes, and swales. Runoff would be conveyed to five on-site stormwater treatment and detention/retention facilities. The project site is located in a OB-1 General Office Building District, as shown on the Town Zoning Map. The project is located on East Stevens Avenue and Westlake Drive in the Town of Mount Pleasant, New York.
