Notice Of Acceptance Of Final Generic EIS

Orange County - The Town of Wawayanda Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Town of Wawayanda Final Draft Comprehensive Plan. The action involves adoption of Town of Wawayanda Final Draft Comprehensive Plan and Generic Environmental Impact Statement. For the purposes of compliance with the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR), the Final Draft Comprehensive Plan serves as the Town of Wawayanda's Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS). SEQR establishes a process requiring the consideration of environmental factors early in the planning stages of actions that are undertaken, approved or funded by the state, regional or local agencies. This systematic approach allows adverse impacts to be avoided or mitigated. The "action" that requires SEQR review is adoption of the plan and related zoning and subdivision amendments by the Town Board. This GEIS describes the potential impacts of such adoption. This action includes the entire municipality.
