Greene County - The Town of Greenville, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water District #1 System Upgrades will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

This project would include installation of approximately 2,000 feet of new water main along NYS Route 81 to serve homes which have poor water quality and supply or are contaminated. This would require extension of the Water District. The Town is proposing to make improvements to the water system as follows:

  • Install a pressure reducing valve (PRV) to reduce water pressure in lower areas of the district.
  • Install a new SCADA system to automate operations and allow remote monitoring, operation and alarm of the systems.
  • Construct a new water storage tank at an alternate site which would improve pressure to upper areas of the District and eliminate the need to continuously pump into the system.
  • Extend service to homes along Route 81 which have poor water quality.
  • Replace failed and inoperable hydrants and valves.

The project is located along NYS Route 81, NYS Route 32 and Wickes Lane in the Town of Greenville, New York.

Greene County - The Village of Coxsackie Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed A Local Law to Amend Chapter 75 of the Village Code of the Village of Coxsackie will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The Reed Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in May 1980. The Village of Coxsackie subsequently adopted Local Law No. 6 of 1980 in July of 1980 with the intent of providing local authority and procedures for establishing a Preservation District and regulating work within the district. The Historic Preservation Commission has recently been revitalized and the purpose of Local Law 7-2017 is to clarify and update the regulations to ensure that new development and modifications within the district are visually compatible with the existing historic fabric and structures.

The project is located in the Village of Coxsackie, New York.

Greene County - The Village Board of the Village of Coxsackie, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of a Local Law to Repeal Local Law No. 4 of 2008 and Amend the Village of Coxsackie Code, will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The action involves the adoption of a Local Law to repeal Local Law No. 4 of 2008, in its entirety, and replace Chapter 87 Manufactured and Modular Homes of the Village of Coxsackie Code, in its entirety, will set forth the regulations governing the location, development, and operation of mobile home parks in the Village of Coxsackie. The provisions of the existing Chapter 87 are antiquated and inadequate. The purpose and intent of the proposed Local Law is to clarify and update the Village of Coxsackie's mobile home regulations to make consistent with other procedures in the Village of Coxsackie Zoning Code. The proposed Local Law expands the definition of a "Mobile Home" and distinguishes a "Modular Home", as defined in Chapter 155, Zoning, of the Village Code. The proposed Local Law also repeals Chapter 87 and replaces it with updated provisions that reflect, among other things, the Village's desire to avoid overcrowding, promote open space within the Village, and prevent excessive use of the Village's finite resources.

The project is located throughout the Village of Coxsackie, New York.
