This Notice is issued pursuant to Part 617 of the implementing regulations of Article 8 (SEQRA) of the Environmental Conservation Law.
The Lead Agency has determined that the proposed action described below will not have a significant effect on the environment.
TITLE OF ACTION:
Adoption of Local Law No. __ of 2017 of the Town of Orangetown, amending Chapter 43 of the Town Code by adding Article XVI entitled “Entity Disclosure”.
DESCRIPTION OF ACTION:
The proposed action amending the zoning code will require all privately held and/or non-publically traded entities making land use applications to the Town supply information as to all limited and general members, shareholders, officers and directors or other persons having control over the entity.
There will be no significant adverse environmental impact(s) as a result of the proposed action.
REASONS SUPPORTING THIS DETERMINATION:
The proposed action amends the zoning code and provides for privately held and/or non-publically traded entities to complete an entity disclosure statement in a form approved by the Town Board, which will require disclosure of the names of each limited and general member, shareholder, officer, director, beneficial owner, partner or anyone having control over such privately held entity. Such a change to the Town Code will not have an adverse environmental impact.
In addition, both the Town Planning Board, pursuant to Town Code Chapter 43, § 10.5, and the County Planning Department, pursuant to General Municipal Law §§ 239 L & M, have reviewed the proposed law, and neither has concluded that the proposed action will have any significant adverse impact.
POTENTIAL IMPACTS DETERMINED NOT TO BE SIGNIFICANT:
Based on the Short Environmental Assessment Form, prepared by the Town’s Director of the Office of Building, Zoning, Planning and Enforcement, and the Town Board’s familiarity with the parcels and the area in which they are situated, the Town Board has concluded that there will be no significant environmental impacts by the adoption of the zoning change specifically relating to:
• Agricultural Land Resources
• Historic and Archaeological Resources
• Surface or Groundwater Quantity or Quality

• Public Health
• Air Quality and Noise Levels
