Decoding Village Agendas – April 4,  2016

Regular Meetings of the Village Board


 (Open to Public  – Televised)


PRESENTATIONS/OTHER:  The Village Board to review the Short Environmental Assessment Form Part 2 as it relates to the proposed zoning change at 120 Scenic Drive West in order to make a determination of significance for SEQRA purposes.    A proposal to rezone a parcel on Scenic Drive West (the current Hendry building), from O-2 to RA-25 is under consideration.  The Planning Board has made a positive recommendation for this change citing  a residential zoning as being in keeping with surrounding zoning and uses.  A Local Law has been introduced to effect this zoning change and the Village Board has declared itself Lead Agency for SEQRA purposes.   The Board will review the specifics of the Short EAF as a step to making a determination of significance for the proposed zoning.


PUBLIC HEARING:  To consider the issuance of a Special Permit for Shop Rite Supermarkets, Inc. at 460 South Riverside Avenue.   ShopRite Supermarkets is seeking a special permit renewal and modification of its site development plan for a proposed expansion of  its operations. The Village Board is the Lead Agency under SEQRA.  It has previously referred this proposal to the Planning Board, Waterfront Advisory Committee and County Planning for comment and recommendation. All have provided favorable recommendations.  If the Public Hearing is closed, the Board will consider a resolution approving the proposed modifications to the ShopRite site and approval of Special Permit renewal.  The application would then return to the Planning Board for approval of the specifics of its site plan.
