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

Orange County - The Town of Wawayanda Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law - Zoning And Related Code Amendments will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a local law that amends certain provisions of the Town's Zoning (Chapter 195), Subdivision of Lands Chapter 162), and Mobile Home Courts (Chapter 114) Codes, and private road specifications in the Street Specifications Code (Chapter 158). The amendments are primarily in the Zoning Code, and include, but are not limited to, new and amended terms and definitions, amendment of accessory structure and use standards, parking requirements for multifamily residences, permit requirements for home occupations, vehicles storage, a ten-acre restriction on cemetery size, and adoption of mapped boundaries for the watershed protection overlay zones. The Mobile Home Courts Code is amended to permit mobile home courts only in that portion of the AR (Agricultural Residential) zoning district located north of Route 6, which would be consistent with the current Zoning Code. The project is located throughout the Town of Wawayanda, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Westchester County - The City Council of Mount Vernon, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed MX-1 Commercial Corridor Zoning District. The Final GEIS is available from the City of Mount Vernon City Clerk Office, 1 Roosevelt Square North, Room 104, Mount Vernon, NY 10550 and on line at: www.cmvny.com.

The action involves the creation of a proposed MX-1 Commercial Corridor Zoning District, to promote the development of a wide variety of interrelated and compatible commercial, office, residential, civic, and entertainment uses in a pedestrian-oriented environment while preserving the historical context. Furthermore, the purpose is to transform an auto repair and light industrial corridor along East Third Street (between South Fulton Avenue and South Columbus Avenue) into a neighborhood that takes full advantage of the pedestrian-oriented infrastructure of the street. Accordingly, the proposed zoning amendment will convert this corridor into its original high density, pedestrian-friendly character while preserving its historical character and nature. The Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement was previously accepted as complete 11/24/2020. Since that time, the heights have been revised to allow for a maximum height of 12 stories (with a density bonus), which was studied in the Draft Generic Environmental Impact Study. The project is located on East Third Street between South Fulton and South Columbus in the City of Mount Vernon, New York.
