Negative Declaration

Delaware County - The New York State Governor's Office of Storm Recovery (NYS GOSR), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Circle Drive Development Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. NYS GOSR proposes to provide Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding to the Delaware County Planning Department (Delaware Opportunities), Lakewood Development II, LLC and the Village of Sidney to acquire and develop three parcels near the intersection of Circle Drive and West Main Street (Circle Drive Development project), in the Village of Sidney to construct up to 22 single family homes, 10 two unit townhouses, and the infrastructure necessary to support the development. The parcels are currently owned by Saint Luke's Lutheran Church and two other private owners. The later two parcels will need to be annexed from the Town of Sidney to the Village. As project plans developed, additional properties were also included, as follows: a sliver of the Veteran's of Foreign Wars (VFW) parcel adjacent to the northeast corner of the site to support the necessary entrance driveway right-of-way (0.1 acre), three alternative sites for a water booster pump (ranging from 0.4 to 0.9 acres), two located on private properties and the third on Village of Sidney property, and a portion of West Main Street to the north of the project area for modification of the existing water main (0.3 acre). The total Project area will be 10 to 10.5 acres, depending on the water booster location selected. The St. Lukes and VFW parcels will be rezoned from R-1 to R-2. They and the Patterson parcel will also require subdivision. The project is located at the intersection of Circle Drive and West Main Street in Sidney, New York.
