Planning Board to resume work on EIS Monday

After slowing done for the holidays, the Geneseo Planning Board will resume work on the environmental review of the application of Newman Development for the Lowe’s PDD Monday night. The board will have a new face, as Lowe’s supporter Hank Latorella attends his first official meeting since being appointed to take John Zmich’s place at the town’s organizational meeting last week.

The board will presumably give final approval to a memo prepared by the town’s consultants responding to the the applicant’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and public comments received on the DEIS. The board reviewed concerns raised by the consultants and the public at its last meeting in December.

Mike Guyon of MRB Group had been charged with producing a final draft of the memo according to the board’s instructions. If acceptable the memo, which requests certain clarifications and additional studies, will then be turned over to the applicant. At that time it will also presumably become a public record, which this web site will file a FOIL to receive and publish.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the town’s office on Millennium Drive.
