Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft EIS And Public Hearing

Orange County - The Planning Board of the Town of Goshen, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Hendler Planned Adult Community Project.

Notice Of Acceptance Of Final Generic EIS

Sullivan County - The Town Board of the Town of Thompson, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Concord Resort. The action involves the Town Board adopting a new Planned Resort Development zoning district for its holdings of 1,735 acres. The PRD zoning would allow a planned development similar to existing Planned Use Development districts within the Town, but would allow the construction of additional non-residential developments such as hotels, theater, mixed-uses and a convention center. The PRD would also allow approximately 400 additional units beyond that allowed under a PUD by allowing the existing on-site golf courses to be calculated as common open space.

The action also includes a Comprehensive Development Plan, an element required under the proposed PRD district, that will guide future development of the PRD district by providing a prescribed mix of uses, bulk requirements, and design guidelines.

The proposed project site is located on approximately 1,735 acres within the Town of Thompson, Sullivan County, New York. The site is bordered on the north by Sullivan County Route 109, on the south by New York State Route 17, on the east by County Road 161 and Downs Road and on the west by New York State Route 42.
