Conditioned Negative Declaration

Orange County - The Town of Montgomery Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Approval of Site Plan and Special Exception Use Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. There will be a 30 day public comment period commencing with the date of this notice. The action involves development of a central mix concrete plant off the west side of Stone Castle Road in an I-3 Industrial District. Central mix defines a wet mix plant which is enclosed and, thereby, limits dust and noise. The plant is designed to accommodate up to eight or nine dry product aggregate haul trucks per day and up to 14 on-site concrete mix delivery trucks being filled and delivering redi-mixed concrete to jobsites in the area. Material will be brought into the site and dumped into storage bins from which it will be taken and placed in silos located inside the central mix building.

Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft Generic EIS And Public Hearing

Ulster County - The Town of Lloyd Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Comprehensive Plan. A public hearing on the Draft Generic EIS will be held on August 4, 2005 at 7:00 p.m. at the Highland Fire Station #1 in Highland, NY. Written comments on the Draft GEIS will be accepted for a 10-day public comment period following the close of the public hearing. The action involves the adoption of a Comprehensive Plan under the provisions of § 272-a of New York State Town Law. The proposed Comprehensive Plan is the first set of comprehensive amendments to the Town’s land use policies since the prior Development Plan was adopted in 1966. An update to the 1966 Development Plan was prepared in 1981 but was never officially adopted by the Town. The proposed Comprehensive Plan would establish policies for new land uses and regulations within the Town to guide conservation and development of the Town into the near future. The Comprehensive Plan reflects the wishes of Town residents, as expressed in a public opinion survey, at two broadly promoted community planning workshops, and numerous public meetings and public hearings held between 1997 and 2005, and the work of a Comprehensive Plan Committee, meeting regularly in open session for eight years. A broad consensus was reached from this extensive outreach process that certain actions needed to be taken to address development pressures in a manner that has a beneficial effect on the character of the Town, particularly its agricultural heritage, small town rural quality, and scenic resources, while accommodating economically viable businesses in the Town and the growing residential housing market. The Comprehensive Plan responds to residents’ desires to achieve this broad goal. Adoption of the proposed Comprehensive Plan would apply Townwide.
