The project proposes the construction of the Saw Kill Trail project as a cooperative project pursuant to a proposed cooperative agreement and two easements entitled “Deed of Conservation Easement and Public Access Easement” given by Winnakee Land Trust, Inc. to the Town, each dated February 14, 2020 and filed as Document No. 02-2020945 and 02-2020947, respectively. The Town Board has reviewed a Part 1 Environmental Assessment Form. The Town Board has adopted a resolution determining to act as lead agency for purposes of review under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA), and determining that the proposed project is an unlisted action. In conjunction with its review of the project under SEQRA, the Town Board will undertake a review of the Saw Kill Trail project in order to determine whether and to what extent Red Hook’s zoning laws apply to the proposed Saw Kill Trail project, taking into account the nine factors set forth in Matter of County of Monroe v. City of Rochester, as follows: (1) the nature and scope of the instrumentality seeking immunity; (2) the encroaching government’s legislative grant of authority; (3) the kind of function or land use involved; (4) the effect local land use regulation would have on the enterprise concerned; (5) alternative locations for the facility in less restrictive zoning areas; (6) the impact upon legitimate local interests; (7) alternative methods of providing the proposed improvement: (8) the extent of the public interest to be served by the improvements; and (9) intergovernmental participation in the project development process and an opportunity to be heard.
All interested persons will be given an opportunity to be heard in person or by directing comments in writing to the Town Board, 7340 South Broadway, Red Hook, New York 12571. All reasonable accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities. In such a case, please notify the Town Clerk in advance at the above address or by phone 845-758-4606 so that arrangements can be made.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that copies of said EAF are available for review at the office of the Town Clerk, Red Hook Town Hall, 7340 South Broadway, Red Hook, New York 12571.
