Negative Declaration

Livingston County - The Town of Caledonia Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law No. 2 of 2021 Regulations for Solar Energy and Battery Energy Storage Systems will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the amendment of Chapter 106 of the Town of Caledonia Code to revise the existing regulations for solar energy systems and provide regulations for battery energy storage systems (BESS). The regulations balance the various competing objectives of accommodating the New York State renewable energy goals and protecting the property rights of landowners, while preserving the community character, health, safety and welfare of the Town and its citizens, minimizing potential adverse impacts of solar energy systems and BESSs to adjacent properties, and conserving high quality agricultural land. Project specific impacts will be assessed under a separate environmental review as part of the project application approval process. The project is located throughout the Town of Caledonia, New York.

Livingston County - The Town of Mount Morris Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Comprehensive Plan Adoption will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of the Town of Mount Morris 2020 Comprehensive Plan, which replaces the Town's 1997 Plan. The updated Comprehensive Plan has been prepared to better understand current conditions, review and incorporate relevant information and recommendations from the Town's other recent planning and revitalization projects, and prepare for appropriate and compatible future growth and development. This Plan establishes a new vision for the future, identifies specific development and revitalization goals and associated recommendations, and sets forth clear steps to implement those recommendations necessary to achieve the Town's vision. Recommendations address a variety of issues, including, but not limited to Natural Resources; Parks and Open Space; Agriculture; Housing; Public Infrastructure; Land Use and Zoning; and Economic Development. The project is located throughout the Town of Mount Morris, New York
