Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft EIS And Public Hearing

Dutchess County - The Planning Board of the Town of Beekman, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Springs at Beekman Incentive Cluster Subdivision.

The proposed homes are all single family detached residential dwelling units. The Incentive Cluster layout design of the project creates a more compact residential layout design, when compared with other residential alternatives considered, which allows for the provision of more open space.

In addition to open spaces and landscaped areas of the development, areas of significant recreational value will exist throughout the project area. The Springs at Beekman development includes the dedication to the Town of 140.55 acres of land to be used as local public park and recreational purposes, including dedication of the on-site Lake and beach area.

The beach and recreational area will include a gazebo, boat ramp, picnic tables, tot-lot play structure, gravel parking lot, boat trailer storage area and cabana building with restrooms. There will also be a system of trails that will encircle the eastern, western, and northern edges of the Lake and will connect with the proposed sidewalk system in the development. All of these trails will be dedicated to the Town of Beekman upon completion. Twenty-five foot wide conservation easements will be placed along the rear of the lots along the Lake. These conservation easements will be recorded in the deed for each individual property and will restrict future property owners from altering grades, constructing or placing any structures, mowing or fertilizing in the conservation easement. This will help to ensure that the natural beauty of these lots is maintained.

The proposed development will be serviced by a private water supply system that will be owned by a Transportation Corporation which will be privately held and operated. Wastewater generated by the homes will be collected by gravity sewer mains and conveyed directly (or where necessary by means of a sewer lift station and/or a pump station) to a centrally located, privately owned and operated on-site sewage treatment plant.
