Notice of Acceptance of Draft GEIS

Albany County - The City of Albany Common Council, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Unified Sustainable. The Draft GEIS is available from the contact listed below and on line at:

The action involves a proposal by the City of Albany to adopt the Unified Sustainable Development Ordinance (Proposed Action), a series of zoning text and map amendments which govern the laws under which development is regulated. The Proposed Action was developed as a response to the adoption of the Albany 2030 Comprehensive Plan - the city's first comprehensive plan in its almost 400 years of existence in April of 2012. In response to the Albany 2030 Plan, the Proposed Action intends to address the shortcomings of the current zoning and assist in achieving the planning goals of Albany 2030 by making changes to the City of Albany's zoning and administrative codes. The project is located throughout the City of Albany, New York.
