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:

Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Southampton Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendment of Town Code Chapters 330-162 and 330-33 Listing Self-service Storage Facility as a SE will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves amending the Town of Southampton Town Code to allow list self-service storage facilities as a special exception use in Highway Business (HB) zoning district and establish additional special exception standards which reflect and compliment community character. Currently, the Town allows self-storage facilities in Light Industry, LI-40 and LI-200 zoning districts by special exception. Due to the nature of self-service storage, special exception design standards were established in efforts to mitigate undesirable characteristics of the use. While self-service storage facilities are recognized as a low trafficking generating use and therefore a compatible use in Highway Business (HB) zoning district, improved design standards are necessary to maintain the aesthetic importance of Highway corridors. The project is located n the Town of Southampton, New York.
