Negative Declaration

Oneida County - The Town Board of the Town of Vernon, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed designation of premises commonly known as Vernon Downs as Planned Development Entertainment and Tourism District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves premises commonly known as Vernon Downs consisting of approximately 292 acres previously zoned simply "Planned Development" to be rezoned as a new district entitled "Planned Development Entertainment and Tourism District" (PDET) under which the historical permitted uses as a horse racing track would be continued as a matter of right and additional uses for other types of racing (motorcycle, snowmobile) and the conduct of summer concerts and fairs would be allowed only upon the issuance of Temporary Permits. The project is located at Vernon Downs, 14 Ruth Street, Vernon, New York.
