Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The Town of Oyster Bay Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hicksville Downtown Revitalization Initiative - Adoption of Hicksville Downtown Zoning District, Associated Town Zoning Code and Zoning Map Amendments will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of amendments to Chapter 246.5 of the Town of Oyster Bay Zoning Code to implement the development standards for the new Hicksville Downtown (HD) zoning district, to adopt the Design Guidelines and Development Standards that will control the ensuing development sought in the HD district, and amend the Town Zoning Map. In addition, the existing CB (Central Business) district will be removed from the Town Zoning Code, and properties zoned CB will be rezoned to HD, NB (Neighborhood Business) or GB (General Business). The purpose of the proposed zoning amendments is to provide for the type of attractive and appropriate redevelopment in a 168 ± acre area around the Hicksville Long Island Railroad (LIRR) Station with viable and compatible uses that are consistent with Town and community goals, and the purpose and intent of the grant program of the New York State Regional Economic Development Council Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). The action also involves modifications to Town Code previously referencing the CB District. The project is located in a 168 ± acre area around the Hicksville LIRR Station; areas in the Hicksville Commercial Business (CB) District, Hamlet of Hicksville, Town of Oyster Bay, New York.
