What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8450.html.


Negative Declaration

Rockland County - The Town of Haverstraw Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Oak Tree Apartments, LLC will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a petition by the applicant to amend the zoning ordinance in order to create a new zoning district identified as the OT-18 Multi-Family Residential District within the Town of Haverstraw. The proposed zone change would result in both text and map changes and would create to allow the development of multiple-family housing on sites that have a lot area of 10 acres or greater at a maximum density of 18 units per acre. The action also takes into consideration a site plan application for the subject property in which it is proposed that 228 dwelling units be constructed, resulting in a density of 16.83 units per acre. The project is located on Oak Tree Lane, in Thiells and Garnerville, Town of Haverstraw, New York.
