ENB - Region 1 Notices 4/12/2017

Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Southampton Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Speonk Commons Change of Zone will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a zoning map amendment of a parcel split-zoned VB and R-20 so that Village Business (VB) portion at the front of the site will remain, but the zoning line be moved so that the portion zoned VB is effectively reduced by approximately 1/2 acre (resulting in 43,752 square foot of land area zoned as VB) and the Residential (R-20) portion at the rear of the site is changed to Multi-Family Residential (MF-44) and with the shift of the zoning boundary the area designated as MF-44 would increase by approximately 1/2 acre (resulting in 142,653 square foot of land area zoned MF-44); and the Town Board will invoke the provisions of Zoning Code §330-8 in order to increase the permitted residential density on the parcel to a maximum of 38 units to provide 100% affordable community benefit rental housing. The subject Zoning Amendment will facilitate the development of 38 residential rental units restricted for affordable housing and ground floor commercial space within the remaining VB zone. The project is located at 41 North Phillips Avenue in Speonk, Town of Southampton, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Nassau County - The Nassau County Department of Public Works, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Mosquito Control Plan. The Final GEIS is available from the Nassau County Department of Public Works - Planning, 1194 Prospect Avenue, Westbury, NY 11590-2723 and on line at: https://www.nassaucountyny.gov/1872/Mosquito-Control.

Through the Mosquito Control Plan (MCP), the Nassau County Department of Public Works (NC DPW) and the Nassau County Department of Health (NC DOH) work together to suppress mosquito populations that can impact public health (e.g. West Nile Virus, Zika Virus). To achieve this goal, the Nassau County's MCP employs Integrated Pest Management (IPM) by focusing on long-term suppression or prevention, with a minimal impact on health, environment, and non-target organisms. IPM incorporates all reasonable measures to prevent mosquito problems by properly identifying species, monitoring population dynamics, and using physical, biological, or chemical population control methods to reduce mosquitoes to acceptable levels. Control measures emphasize prevention and proceed from the most environmentally friendly measures such as education of residents, water management and trapping in detention ponds and sumps, to chemical controls including the application of larvicides and adulticides. Chemical controls are only used if other measures prove to be insufficient. The project is located throughout Nassau County, New York.
