Notice of Acceptance of Final Supplemental Generic EIS

Suffolk County - The Town of Huntington Town Board, as lead agency has accepted a Final Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Massapequa Cove, Inc., Proposed Change of Zone #98-ZM-315. The action involves the request by Massapequa Cove, Inc. for a change of zone from I-1 Light Industry to R-RM Retirement District for 12.0 acres. The rezoning is proposed to enable development of 174 senior citizen independent living housing units contained in thirteen (13) separate two-story buildings with 262 parking spaces, and a 2,100 square foot recreation building and outdoor swimming pool.. Road access to the site is via Park Drive. The rezoning is inconsistent with the Town Board-adopted findings for the Melville-Route 110 Area GEIS later incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan GEIS, which designate the subject property for Industry/Office. The Comprehensive Plan identifies the parcel as within the non-core office industry area, allowing an FAR of .20 for office and .33 for industry. However, the Comprehensive Plan also specifies a policy of encouraging the development of senior citizen housing particularly where the housing provides a substantial public benefit to offset the increases in density.
