Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Southampton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amend Town Code 330-10 Table of Use Regulations Allowing Wastewater Treatment Systems In R-10 By Special Exception will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The Town Board is considering the amendment of Chapter 330-10 (Table of Use Regulations) of the Town Code of the Town of Southampton by allowing a sewage treatment facility as a special exception use within the R-10 district. Currently all other districts allow sewage treatment facilities by special exception except R-10. Communities in R-10 districts are fully developed, high density residential areas, within the 2 year contributing area and have some of the greatest negative impact on water quality. The town also seeks to be in compliance with natural resource management objectives listed within the 1999 Comprehensive Plan, the Costal Resource and Water Protection Plan (CRWPP), the Southampton 400+ Sustainability Element, the Water Quality Improvement Protection Plan (WQIPP).

The proposed legislation seeks to amend the use table as it applies to sewage treatment plants within R-10 districts so, when appropriate, a cluster treatment system can be installed to serve multiple residences at once. The special exception designation still requires oversight and review as to the placement of these uses. However, by at least contemplating that such facilities may be needed in certain areas of the R-10 zones, the Town can be proactive in its efforts to improve water quality and reduce the effects of nitrogen in high priority areas (which are those which have a 2 year travel time to surface waters).

The project is located in all R-10 Districts of the Town of Southampton, New York.

Positive Declaration

Suffolk County - The Huntington Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Preserve at Indian Hills Subdivision (D-17-005-P) may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared.

The proposed action is for the development of a 151.66 acre property for a ninety-nine (99) lot cluster subdivision located entirely within the R-40 Residence Zoning District (Minimum Lot Area 43,560 s.f./ 1.00 acre). The proposed cluster development would allow for the continued operation of an eighteen (18)-hole golf course known as Indian Hills Country Club, and the construction of up to ninety-eight (98) age-restricted (55 and older) residential units in duplex structures with vehicular access via four (4) 26-foot wide private roadways.

The project is contiguous to the Long Island Sound in the northeast region of the Town of Huntington, located on the northwest corner of Breeze Hill Road and Fresh Pond Road and the south side of Breeze Hill Road, approximately 1,162 feet west of Fresh Pond Road in the Town of Huntington, New York.
