ENB - Region 3 Notices 8/2/2017

Negative Declaration

Rockland County - The Village of Nyack Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed TZ Vista will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a site plan approval, special permit approval, Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) consistency review, and a design review to facilitate the construction of a 128 unit multi-family residential building with an accessory café, a riverfront park and 282 parking spaces. The Applicant, TZ Vista, LLC, proposes to construct three apartment buildings, each 52 feet tall, and townhomes to serve as liner buildings fronting the Hudson River. Two stories of garage parking are proposed underground and interior to the structure to hold 252 spaces. Thirty additional street level parking spaces are proposed on two lots across Gedney Street.

The applicant proposes to provide a minimum of 50 foot distance separation between the apartment buildings, maintaining views to the Hudson River from Lydecker Street, High Avenue, and Main Street. A pedestrian walkway is proposed along the Hudson River, with public amenities including seating areas, an outlook/observation pier, one or two kayak launches with kayak rentals available at the proposed café, and recreational fishing opportunities. From Gedney Street, the roof of the parking garage would provide additional public and private residential open space, as well as access to the proposed pedestrian walkway.

The project is located at 41 and 55 Gedney Street and 25 and 26 Lydecker Street in the Village of Nyack, New York.

Ulster County - The New York State Governor's Office of Strom Recovery (NYS GOSR), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Saugerties - Lighthouse Restoration will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves proposal by the Village of Saugerties for a restoration project at the Saugerties Lighthouse that will repair a seawall, bulkheads, pier and floating dock damaged during Superstorm Sandy to help mitigate future impacts of tidal and coastal flooding to the Saugerties Lighthouse historic property. The rising and falling tidal waters in the Hudson River have created voids within the perimeter of the sea wall. The design will develop a grouting plan to fill the void areas. A new wooden bulkhead will be designed along the south side of the sea wall to replace the former wooden bulkhead which is deteriorated and no longer providing any protection to the sea wall. The subsurface soil/rock conditions in the vicinity of the former bulkhead will be defined by installing soil borings. The large concrete pier located on the south side of the deck area has been undermined over the years by water and wave action. The base under the concrete pier will be restored and broken sections of the concrete pier secured. The floating wooden dock located to the southwest of the Lighthouse will be repaired. The project is located at 68 Lighthouse Drive in the Village of Saugerties, New York.
