Negative Declaration

Orange County - The Town Board of the Town of Warwick, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Establishment of Community Preservation Fund will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves establishing a Community Preservation Fund for the purposes of preserving community character including natural, scenic, agricultural and historic resources within the Town of Warwick. A Community Preservation Project Plan has been prepared that describes preservation priorities and land use alternatives to protect community character. The Project Plan meets the requirements of Section 64-g of New York State Town Law. In conjunction with the Plan, the Town proposes to finance the Community Preservation Fund through enactment of a ¾ % real estate transfer tax pursuant to Article 31-F of the New York State Tax Law. Collection of the revenues from the real estate transfer tax will be deposited into the Community Preservation Fund. Money from the fund can be spent only on projects identified in the Plan. The three actions are proposed as three separate local laws for adoption purposes but, due to their interrelatedness, have been treated as one action for SEQR purposes.
