Negative Declaration

Clinton County - The Village of Champlain, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Village of Champlain Downtown Revitalization Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of the Village of Champlain Downtown Revitalization Plan by the Village Board of Trustees. Future actions taking place in the Village, regardless of whether the action is recommended or supported by the Plan, will require their own SEQR review on a case by case basis. The Downtown Revitalization Plan analyzes the Village socio-demographic profile, existing conditions, assets, opportunities, weaknesses and threats. It provides a Vision, Goals, and a set of recommended actions and ideas for Main Street revitalization and re-utilization of the village-owned lands on the Great Chazy River. The Plan seeks to revitalize Main Street through attracting new businesses and property owners to adaptively reuse historically contributing buildings, invest in existing structures and storefronts, in-fill redevelop of properties outside flood-prone areas, and better utilize Zoning to attract appropriate lands uses and property maintenance laws to stem the present disinvestment and proliferation of zombie buildings. The Plan seeks to enhance recreational activities and community place-making amenities in the downtown, riverside parks utilizing sustainable, flood-safe practices; enhance the aesthetic character of the community through streetscape improvements and public art; provide a diversity of housing options for all ages and incomes; grow the local economy through marketing the Village's assets and increasing tourism and working with regional economic development organizations and agencies. The project is located in the Downtown/Main Street area of the Village of Champlain, New York.
