Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Orange County - The Village of Woodbury Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Gardens at Harriman Station may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on June 21, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at a place to be determined, check the Village of Woodbury website for location.

The action involves the development of the Gardens at Harriman Station, a transit-oriented development (TOD) which will provide a broad range of housing types, shopping, restaurants, recreational and community facilities in walkable, vibrant neighborhoods near the Harriman Train Station.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Westchester County - The Town of Mount Pleasant Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Baker Residential Subdivision. The Final EIS is available from the Town of Mount Pleasant Town Hall and on line at:

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 9,500 square feet. The primary purpose of clustering the lots is to preserve the more environmentally constrained portions of the property as open space. The majority of the open space area, 80.8 ± acres, would be owned and maintained by a Homeowners Association established for the project and subject to a conservation easement. 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 home, 67 lots are currently planned to range in size from approximately 20,100 square feet to 57,500 square feet and 49 lots are planned to range in size from approximately 9,500 square feet to 21,200 square feet. There are 27 three-bedroom, single-family homes planned to range in size from 2,600 to 3,100 square feet. The 89 four-bedroom, single-family homes would range in size from 3,100 to 4,200 square feet. Access to the cluster subdivision is proposed from two locations. The main entrance would be from Lozza Drive. The second entrance would be via Westlake Drive opposite the 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 six on-site stormwater facilities. Electric and gas service to the Site is provided by Consolidated Edison Inc. 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.
