Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The Town of Red Hook Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Town of Red Hook Open Space Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of the Town of Red Hook Open Space Plan. The Open Space Plan has been prepared in accordance with the Town’s 1993 Comprehensive Plan recommendation to inventory open space resources in the community and to develop an overall long-range open space plan to preserve these resources and direct development towards less environmentally sensitive areas of the Town. The goals of the Open Space Plan are to protect Red Hook’s rural quality and natural environment, to plan for sufficient recreation land and facilities, and to cooperate with the Villages of Red Hook and Tivoli to plan for open space protection. These goals, which reflect the wishes of Town residents as expressed in a Community Survey and two public workshops, refine and supplement the goals and objectives identified in the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed Open Space Plan would be a policy document to guide future actions, and these future actions would require a separate SEQR review. The project is located in the Town of Red Hook, Dutchess County, New York.
