The Town of Huntington Planning Board will conduct a special meeting on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 10:30 AM at Huntington Town Hall to consider The Preserve at Indian Hills Preliminary Subdivision public hearing schedule and any other matter that may come before the Planning Board.
There are two parts of The Preserve at Indian Hills application happening concurrently: one part is the DEIS public comment period ending October 18, 2019, which follows guidelines established by NYS DEC SEQRA laws; the other part is the cluster subdivision development, which follows the guidelines established by NYS Town Law Sections 276 and 278.
Typically, the SEQRA requirement considering the DEIS and the Preliminary Subdivision hearing occur together as one public hearing. In this case, the process has been extended, having two public hearings on separate days – the public hearing on the DEIS was held on September 18 with the public comment period ending October 18 and the Preliminary Subdivision public hearing will occur at a later date – expanding the opportunity for public participation.
Once The Preserve at Indians Hills has been scheduled for a Preliminary Subdivision public hearing pursuant to Sections 276 and 278 of New York State Town Law, the Town will publicize the hearing date, and the Long Islander and The Observer will advertise the Legal Notice for two (2) consecutive weeks prior to the hearing date.
Sections 276 and 278 of New York State Town Law do not require Planning Board action to schedule the Preliminary Subdivision public hearing however, due to high public interest in this project, the Planning Board has scheduled the Thursday, October 10 meeting to consider the Preliminary Subdivision public hearing schedule the ensure the public is fully aware of the process.
The public hearing, once scheduled, will be held in the Town Board Hearing Room, Huntington Town Hall, 100 Main Street, Huntington, New York. Interested persons may attend and will have an opportunity to be heard on the proposed cluster subdivision development.
