Negative Declaration

Columbia County - The Town Board of the Town of Copake, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Town of Copake Scenic Corridor Overlay Zone as an Amendment to the Town of Copake Zoning Code will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves adoption of a Scenic Corridor Overlay Zone (SCOZ) as an amendment to the Town of Copake Zoning Code. The SCOZ was recommended by the Strategic Planning Committee of the Town of Copake, a Special Board appointed by the Town Board, which prepared the adopted Town of Copake Scenic Resource Protection Plan (SRPP). Adoption of the SCOZ will implement established Town policies to control development of the most scenic areas of the Town. The SCOZ will control land subdivision, special use permits, site plan approval and zoning variances within the overlay zone. It will not lessen underlying Zoning district density, but will prohibit certain uses that are currently allowable and will subject certain other uses to the design regulations that have been incorporated into the SCOZ.
