Last Thursday, Gossips reported that the Department of Environmental Conservation had, on its website, listed the Planning Board's SEQR determination on the Colarusso application as a negative declaration. Planning Board chair Stephen Steim and legal counsel to the Planning Board Victoria Polidoro both confirmed that the listing was DEC's error, and it would be corrected when DEC next published its ENB Region 4 Notices. That happened on Wednesday, December 15, and here is the notice as it now appears on the DEC website.
Positive Declaration - Correction of 12/8/21 Notice
Columbia County - The City of Hudson Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Colarusso may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves an application for a conditional use permit for the transport and shipment of goods and raw materials on a 116 acre parcel of property between the railroad tracks to the east and the Hudson River to the west, which is located within or abuts the Core-Riverfront Zoning District, the Recreational Conservation District, the Residential Special Commerce District and the Industrial District. The project is located at 175 South Front Street in the City of Hudson, New York.
