Negative Declaration

Westchester County - The Board of Education, Harrison Central School District, as lead agency, has determined that the Drop Off Parking Lot will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves construction of a drop off parking lot at the Harrison Avenue School. The project is located on Nelson Avenue, approximately 150 feet north of the intersection.

Contact: Edward R. Kear, Harrison Central School District, 50 Union Avenue, Harrison, NY 10528, phone: (914) 777-5702.


Westchester County - The City of Yonkers Community Development Agency, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hudson Park at Yonkers Phase II will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an affiliate of Collins Enterprises LLC, (“the Applicant”), proposing to develop Parcels B, C, D, and a portion of Parcel J on 4.56 acres within the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Master Plan. This action involves the construction of a residential complex with 294 units, a 1,885 square foot leasing office, and a 2,455 square foot fitness room on Parcel C; a 424-space parking garage on Parcel B; and a waterfront park and esplanade on Parcel D and a portion of Parcel J. The maximum height of the proposed building on Parcel C would be 14-stories (150 feet).

As part of the proposed action, a north-south roadway would be created along the eastern edge of Parcel C extending Van der Donck Street to allow for a bridge connection over the Saw Mill River Outlet. This new street would link Dock Street and Wells Avenue and would result in approximately 42 additional street level parking spaces. A new north-south roadway would also be created in front of Parcel C linking Dock Street and Wells Avenue. In addition, Dock Street would be extended to connect with the new north-south roadway in front of Parcel C and the portion of Wells Avenue between the waterfront and the new north-south roadway in front of Parcel C would be demapped.

To permit the development of a 14-story residential complex within the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront, the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Master Plan would be amended to increase the height limit on Parcel C from 80 to 150 feet. The proposed project would require the following approvals: amendment of the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Master Plan; Planning Board and City Council approval of the use of Planned Urban Redevelopment (PUR) district, which requires a Special Use Permit from the City Council; transfer of a leasehold interest (with option to purchase) the project site from the Yonkers Community Development Agency to the applicant; and site plan approval from the Planning Board. The proposed action would also require approval from the City Council and Planning Board for the extension of Van der Donck Street, the creation of the new north-south roadway in front of Parcel C, the extension of Dock Street, and the demapping of a portion of Wells Avenue.

The proposed development is substantially equivalent in size, bulk and design to the previously approved action. It is also complementary to the 1997 Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Master Plan, the development concept previously considered in the Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) dated November 1998, and the Statement of Findings issued by the Yonkers Community Development Agency. Although the proposed building program would result in a increase in height and number of residential units, the impacts of these marginal increases would not be expected to exceed or be significantly different from the impacts of the development concept previously approved or considered in the Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) for the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Master Plan dated November 1998 and the Statement of Findings issued by the Yonkers Community Development Agency. The 4.56-acre project site is located in the City of Yonkers along the edge of the Hudson River. The project site is located west of the Metro-North train tracks on the block circumscribed by Dock Street, Front Street, Alexander Street, Wells Avenue, and the Hudson River.

Westchester County - The Town Board of the Town of Greenburgh, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed continuation of a development known as Avalon Green I. A public hearing will be held on May 24, 2006 at 7:15 p.m. at Greenburgh Town Hall, 177 Hillside Avenue, Greenburgh, NY.

The site is below the ridgeline on Nob Hill, in the Town of Greenburgh, and is a continuation of a development known as Avalon Green I. An amended site plan approval for the existing Avalon Green I project located on the adjacent 17 acres, zoned M-6, to provide for the construction of an access road for Avalon Green II, is part of the proposed action.

In addition to the proposed action for the development of 512 residential units, the Final EIS presents and analyzes alternatives to the proposed action, including alternatives for the development of 444 residential units and alternatives that would not require the development of an access road on the adjacent property zoned OB Office Business District Building and R-10 One-Family Residence District or connection to any roads or utilities in the Village of Elmsford, and would instead allow primary access through the existing Avalon Green I roadway and require construction through the Avalon Green I site of an emergency access road that would connect directly to Taxter Road in the Town approximately 800 feet north of the existing Avalon Green I access (Town Green Drive), and connection to existing utilities in Taxter Road.
