Westchester County - The Village of Sleepy Hollow Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Village of Sleepy Hollow Wireless Communication Facilities Locational Plan. The action involves a location plan for the siting of wireless communication facilities in the Village. The plan was developed in response to the concerns of the Village and the Planning Board about the potential proliferation of wireless communication facilities throughout the Village and the associated cumulative impact of these facilities on the landscape. The plan was developed through a process that screened potential locations in regard to siting requirements for effective service coverage and significant environmental or community features. Having initially identified 18 sites for study, an impact assessment of each site was prepared, examining, among other issues, aesthetic impact, disturbance, and impact on sensitive receptors. This evaluation resulted in a preliminary identification of seven suitable locations for wireless communication facilities in the Village. The project is located Village-wide in the Village of Sleepy Hollow, Town of Mount Pleasant, Westchester County, New York.
