PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE: Proposed Town Hall Project 6/23/2022


PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a public hearing will be held by the Town Board of the Town of Coeymans on June 23, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. local time, at the Town Hall, 18 Russell Avenue, Ravena, New York, to hear all interested persons regarding the proposed New Town Hall Project. The project proposes the construction of a two story, approximately 12,000 square foot Town Hall on the site of the existing Town Hall at 18 Russell Avenue in the Village of Ravena, and the demolition of the existing Town Hall. The Town Board has reviewed a Part 1 Environmental Assessment Form.  The Town Board has adopted a resolution determining to act as lead agency for purposes of review under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) and determining that the proposed project is an unlisted action.  In conjunction with its review of the project under SEQRA, the Town Board will undertake a review of the New Town Hall Project in order to determine whether and to what extent the Village of Ravena zoning laws apply to the proposed New Town Hall Project, taking into account the nine factors set forth in Matter of County of Monroe v. City of Rochester, as follows:  (1) the nature and scope of the instrumentality seeking immunity; (2) the encroaching government’s legislative grant of authority; (3) the kind of function or land use involved; (4)  the effect local land use regulation would have on the enterprise concerned; (5) alternative locations for the facility in less restrictive zoning areas; (6) the impact upon legitimate local interests; (7) alternative methods of providing the proposed improvement: (8) the extent of the public interest to be served by the improvements; and (9) intergovernmental participation in the project development process and an opportunity to be heard.

All interested persons will be given an opportunity to be heard in person or by directing comments in writing to the Town Board, 18 Russell Avenue, Ravena, New York, 12143.  All reasonable accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities.  In such a case, please notify the Town Clerk in advance at the above address or by phone 518-756-6006 so that arrangements can be made.

            PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that copies of said EAF are available for review at the office of the Town Clerk, Coeymans Town Hall, 18 Russell Avenue, Ravena, New York.

            By order of the Town Board of the Town of Coeymans, dated May 26, 2022.
