Negative Declaration

Schenectady County - The Town of Duanesburg, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law Amending Sections 3.5, 8.4, 11.4, and 12.4 of the Zoning Ordinance will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a local law to amend sections 3.5, 8.4, 11.4, and 12.4 of the Town of Duanesburg Zoning Ordinance to permit "Agritourism" and the operation of a Farm Brewery, Distillery, Winery, and Cidery by special use permit. Specifically, the local law would add Agritourism to the list of "Uses Permitted by Special Use Permit" in Section 8.4 for Agriculture & Residential District (R-2), in Section 11.4 for Commercial (C-1) and in Section 12.4 for Manufacturing and Light Industrial (C-2) as well as add definitions for Agritourism, Farm Brewery, Farm Cidery, Farm Distillery, and Farm Winery, to Section 3.5. The project is located throughout the Town of Duanesburg, New York.
