Negative Declaration

Delaware County - The Village of Stamford Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water Rehabilitation Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of a 1.5 million gallon storage tank with a new 750,000 gallon tank (the storage tank construction) and the replacement of approximately 11,500 feet of water main replacement and approximately 3,600 feet of distribution system connector piping (i.e. looping) to address water quality issues (the water main construction). The storage tank project involves replacing the existing 1.5 million gallon storage tank (which is in a state of disrepair and is planned to be demolished with the existing control building) with a new 750,000 gallon tank and control building in the area adjacent to the current tank (at the end of Kirkner Hill Road). Existing service connections are proposed to be replaced in areas of the water main replacement from the main to the property boundary at the right-of-way. The construction of the new storage tank and control building, together with the Churchill Avenue, South Delaware Street, and Kirkner Hill Road water main replacements shall proceed in the first phase of construction. A second phase, commencing after the completion of work identified in phase 1, will include water main replacements and looping in areas along Route 10, River Street, West Main Street, Grant Place, and Railroad Avenue. The project is located at various locations in the Village of Stamford, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Greene County - The Greene County Industrial Development Agency (IDA), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Town of Catskill Exit 21 Development Project (CAT21 Project). The Final GEIS is available from the Greene County IDA, 270 Mansion Street, Coxsackie NY 12051; the Catskill Town Hall, 411 Main Street, Catskill NY 12414; the Catskill Public Library, 1 Franklin Street, Catskill NY 12414 and on line at:

The action involves a proposal by the Greene County IDA to create a shovel-ready development site in the Town of Catskill, New York, located west of the I-87 Exit 21 interchange. The proposed development area is an approximately 64 acre site bounded by I-87 to east, NYS Route 23 to the south, the Catskill Creek to the west, and County Route 23B to the north. The site is currently undeveloped and bordered by several residential properties to the north along Route 23B. It is currently served by public water, and is included in a new sewer district which will provide sewer service to the site. The Greene County IDA is conducting the environmental review of the CAT21 project as a Generic Environmental Impact Statement that evaluates existing conditions in the study area, the potential impacts related to development, and the mitigation measures necessary to reduce potential impacts. The Draft GEIS evaluates several alternative concept plans that include a mix of destination recreation uses, hotels, restaurant, retail, business park/distribution center, truck stop and housing, determines a preferred development plan, identifies mitigation measures and establishes thresholds for future development.
