On behalf of its clients, Keane & Beane, P.C. has had recent success in advancing significant land use projects in Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess Counties.
Putnam County: In the Town of Southeast, a zoning amendment, special permit, and site plan approval for Brewster Honda concluded in September 2014. A-State-of-the-Art Vehicle Preparation and Maintenance Center on a 13 acre parcel at the intersection of I-84 and I-684 will complement the Brewster Honda showroom located across the street on NYS Route 22.
Westchester County: In the Town of Mount Pleasant, an application for a 128,564 square foot building and parking structure continues to advance towards approval on the Landmark at Eastview Campus. Although classified as a Type I action under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”), indicating that it is more likely the proposal may have a significant impact on the environment, the Town adopted a declaration of non-significance (Neg. Dec.) meaning a draft environmental impact statement need not be prepared. This allows the approval process to proceed expeditiously, and final approvals are anticipated within one month.
Dutchess County: In the Town of East Fishkill, final subdivision, site plan and special permit approvals were obtained, after the rezoning of property from residential to commercial. The approvals will permit three buildings, totaling 23,675 square feet at the intersection of NYS Route 52 and Palen Road.
These approvals were obtained as with Brewster Honda and Landmark at Eastview, without the necessity of preparing an environmental impact statement (EIS) because of incorporation of meaningful mitigation measures minimizing impacts.
Attorneys Richard L. O’Rourke and Jennifer Gray worked on these approvals.
