ENB - Region 3 Notices 12/28/2016

Negative Declaration

Westchester County - The Pleasantville Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Pleasantville Master Plan Update will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to adopt an update to its 1995 Master Plan. Since the last Master Plan, the Village has grown and experienced new infill development, particularly along the Marble Avenue and Washington Avenue corridors. Meanwhile, many issues previously raised by the 1995 Plan remain relevant today, notably the untapped potential of the downtown. In addition, the basic land use and demographic data of the 1995 Plan required updating. As a result, the Mayor and Village Board determined that the 1995 Plan should be updated to reflect existing conditions and lay out a set of goals for the next 10 to 20 years. A key focus of the Master Plan Update is the downtown, where the Village is seeking to promote revitalization that will support current businesses, enhance walkability and the pedestrian streetscape, and improve public space and amenities.

The Master Plan Update includes recommendations for zoning changes, transportation improvements and economic development initiatives to facilitate compatible development that will activate the downtown, preserve residential neighborhoods and enhance the Village's tax base. The Plan also recommends a series of intersection improvements in the downtown to address vehicular circulation, pedestrian safety and the potential to create new civic space.

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