Suffolk County - The Town Board of Huntington, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Transfer of Development Rights from Hilaire Woods to Huntington Glen. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on October 30, 2001 at 7:00 p.m. at the Huntington Town Hall, 100 Main Street, Huntington, New York. The action involves transfer development rights (TDR) between properties in common ownership, zoning and taxing districts–from the Hilaire Woods site on Park Avenue to the Huntington Glen site on Pulaski Road pursuant to §198-118.2(B) of Town Code. The Hilaire Woods property contains steep sloped woodland situated in close proximity of regulated freshwater wetlands and a Town-designated historic district. It is pending preliminary subdivision of the 8-acre site into 12 lots by the Planning Board, while also being pursued for public open space acquisition by the Town Board. The Huntington Glen site contains early successional vegetation, has available connection to the Huntington Sewer District, and is located contiguous to other cluster development. It has been conditionally approved for subdivision of the 2.6-acre site into 10 lots. §198-118.2(B) of Town Code specifies a procedure for review of an owner-generated proposal for TDR, which requires preparation of a Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) by the Town pursuant to SEQRA. No number of units was specified for transfer from Hilaire Woods to Huntington Glen. Based on Department of Planning and Environment staff study, the Planning Board recommended that a transfer of no more than four units would maintain the basic integrity of the cluster plan that was conditionally approved for Huntington Glen, upon which public hearings have already been held. Therefore, the proposed action is the transfer of four dwelling units to Huntington Glen to enable a total of 14 homes on that site. If approved, this will be the first transfer of development rights in the Town of Huntington.
