Positive Declaration

Nassau County - The Village of Westbury Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendments to the Village of Westbury Zoning Code may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the adoption of amendments to the Zoning Code of the Incorporated Village of Westbury (Chapter 248 of the Village Code). The purpose of these amendments is to create varying degrees of rezoning of two areas of the downtown of the Village, specifically the Post Avenue Rezoning Area and the Maple/Union Triangle Rezoning Area. The proposed action is being funded by the New York State Department of State through the State's Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). Consistent with the Village's DRI plan, this rezoning is intended to encourage economic development and enhance the quality of life of the Village through carefully applied zoning revisions to the areas identified above. While identified as two separate rezoning areas, the Post Avenue Rezoning Area and Maple/Union Triangle Rezoning Area are intended to yield synergies that would benefit the Village as a whole.

The overall goal for the Post Avenue Rezoning Area is to adjust existing controls to facilitate a mix of retail, commercial and residential uses that continue to bolster the economic vibrancy of the downtown, and to enhance the quality of life for residents, workers and visitors. The overall goal for the Maple/Union Triangle Area is to foster mixed-use development that utilizes the principles of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) due to the proximity to the Westbury Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) station. Through the rezonings, property owners and developers could create new residential and commercial land uses that would enhance the housing and work opportunities within the Village. The project is located on approximately 101 acres (Post Avenue and Maple/Union Triangle Rezoning Areas) in the Village of Westbury, Town of North Hempstead, New York.
