The major issue on the agenda was the public hearing on the Costco DEIS (Draft Environmental Impact Statement).
Given the extensive media coverage of the hearing, the CIY notes will not summarize the comments.
A video of the hearing will be available on the Town’s website, yorktownny.org, and will also be rebroadcast on Channel 20 (Cablevision) and Channel 33 (FIOS); for the schedule, scroll down to the bottom of the home page, for the link to the YGTV schedule.
The purpose of the public hearing was to give the public an opportunity to offer comments or ask questions about the project and the content of the DEIS. The applicant will respond to specific comments and questions in a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). The comments/questions dealt with traffic, the impact on local businesses and potential blight to existing hamlet areas, taxes, jobs, the environment, emergency services and public transportation.
After 26 speakers addressed the Board (14 against, 11 for, and one neutral), the hearing was adjourned to October 29, at a location to be determined. Written comments can be sent to the Planning Department, 1974 Commerce Street, Yorktown Heights.
A copy of the 2,200 page DEIS is available on the Town’s web site, at the John C. Hart Lilbrary and in the Planning Department office in the YCCC (second floor).
