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 New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8450.html

Dutchess County - The Village of Millbrook Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Millbrook Water System Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The Village of Millbrook proposes to construct a new filter system, due to the fact that water infiltration galleries are under the influence of surface water and, in addition, are at risk of contamination from the flooding of adjacent streams. The proposed filter building will be located at the site of the existing water supply and treatment facility. The building will be constructed at an elevation necessary to prevent flooding from the adjacent streams during extreme wet weather. In addition to the construction of the filtration building, the existing 500,000 gallon storage tank, located in the Village, will be drained and rehabilitated.

The project is located on Merritt Avenue in the Village of Millbrook, New York.

Dutchess County - The Town of Red Hook Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Local Law C (Proposed) of 2018 Amending the Town Code to Modify Commercial Uses in Various Zoning Districts in the Town of Red Hook (Food Trucks, Drive-Thru and Formula Businesses, Special Permitted Uses in the TND-CC, and the HB District) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The action involves the adoption of a local law to amend the Town Code of the Town of Red Hook. The local law will modify commercial uses in various Zoning Districts in the Town. It will amend the Town Code to establish a new Chapter 79 to be known as "Food Trucks," and to amend Chapter 143 entitled "Zoning" to prohibit drive-thru businesses and formula businesses; to rezone the B1 District in Upper Red Hook as a Hamlet Business (HB) District with modified commercial uses; to amend the uses in various districts to include food trucks; to amend the TND-CC Subdistrict to delete the special permitted uses; and to amend the Area and Bulk Table to include provisions for the HB District. The amendments are designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of Town residents and to bring the Town's Zoning Law into conformance with "Greenway Connections: Greenway Compact Program and Guides for Dutchess County Communities" pursuant to Chapter 17 of the Town Code. The proposed amendments are consistent with the recommendations of the Town's Comprehensive Plan.

The project is located throughout the Town of Red Hook, New York.
