Greene County - The Village of Coxsackie, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hamlet on Hudson Residential Golf Community may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on November 10, 2005 at 7:30 p.m. at 119 Mansion Street, Coxsackie, NY. The action involves the project site which consists of approximately 587 acres on seven contiguous parcels identified as Greene County tax map parcels 71.00-4-3.1, 71.00-2-1, 71.00-4-6.2, 71.00-3-15.2, 88.00-1-4.211, and 88.00-1-5.11.

The clubhouse will contain a 400-seat banquet room, a restaurant, a fitness center, executive offices, an indoor swimming pool, and one outdoor aquatic park. The development will also include construction of approximately 28,200 (+/-) linear feet of roadway and associated infrastructure. The project will be serviced by municipal water supply and an on-site wastewater treatment plant. Treated wastewater will be discharged into on-site ponds for re-use in the golf course irrigation system. During the off-season, and during periods of frequent rainfall, the irrigation ponds will ultimately flow into the existing unclassified stream that traverses the project site and discharges into a Class C stream that flows under Adams Road. This Class C stream eventually flows into Sleepy Hollow Lake, a Class A surface water which is the raw water source for the Sleepy Hollow Lake development. The wastewater treatment plant will be designed to meet Class A stream discharge standards. The project is located between Farm to Market Road and Johnny Cake Lane, Coxsackie, New York.
