What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the State's Brownfield program is available at DEC's website:

Negative Declaration

Monroe County - The Penfield Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Acquisition of 211.7+/- acres of land formerly known as Shadow Pines Golf Course will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Town of Penfield Town Board proposes to purchase 211.7 (+/-) acres of contiguous lands, formerly used as a golf course with a local historic landmark (Alpheus Clark House), which served as a clubhouse/restaurant ("the Project Site"). The proposed action entails acquisition only; no development of any kind and/or change in use is proposed or contemplated.

The Town intends to explore the potential of the Project Site for several possible development scenarios, including active and/or passive recreational use, open space, and general municipal uses; however, there are no plans for development of the Project Site associated with this action, and in fact the Project Site is subject to moratorium to facilitate review of such potential future development scenarios. Any development of the Project Site, once a determination is made in the future concerning such development, is a separate action and cannot be assessed now as any such future development is not known at this time. In addition, future development of any kind will be subject to land use regulation and as such, is subject to separate review under the State Environmental Quality Review Act.

The project is located 2701 Atlantic Avenue, 1950 Clark Road, 1960 Clark Road, and 745 Whalen Road, Penfield, New York 14526.
