The Village of Nyack has been awarded a grant from the Department of State to update its Local Waterfront Revitalization Program developed in 1992 to guide waterfront development. The Village of Nyack, working in partnership with the New York State Department of State, is seeking proposals from qualified environmental planning firms (the Consultant) to prepare an update to the Village’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) pursuant to the provisions of New York State Executive Law, Article 42.
The Updated LWRP will identify resiliency measures to protect natural and built resources from flooding and sea level rise; include sustainability planning resulting in recommendations for smart growth; and identify strategies for growth that provide economic opportunity.
The LWRP update will reflect the strategic plans developed by the Hudson Valley Regional Council to advance economic priorities. Completion of this project will integrate preparation of a harbor management plan (HMP) as set forth in 19 NYCRR Part 603 within the LWRP (all together, the Project).
The Land Use Technical Committee (LUTC) was created in 2013 to advise the Village Board on improvements to the Village Zoning Code.
The LUTC established four goals:
- Reduce the burden on Land Use Boards, making the process more understandable, with less duplication and complication, more clarity for each board’s roles and responsibilities and provide more time for boards to focus on providing more effective and timely review with better outcomes for both board members and applicants.
- Reduce the burden on the Building Department, provide less time and staff resources for board administration, provide more clarity to the code with less complicated procedures, possible reduction of variance requests with more time and focus on plan review.
- Make the Land Use Process more Understandable and Predictable for Applicants and Reduce the burden on homeowners for smaller property improvements/modifications, more clarity, less board duplication, reduction in possible variance requests, reduce number of smaller applications with less demand for staff, administrative and board resources, more timely and efficient process, more predictable outcome.
- Protect and Maintain the Integrity of Community Character.
The Nyack Tree Committee works to promote a healthy, safe and sustainable community forest that will provide the many benefits that trees can provide in the cost effective way. It includes at least three residents of the Nyacks appointed regular members, and the Village Administrator as an ex officio member. The committee’s responsibilities are as follows:
- Develop a Community Forestry Management Plan including education, outreach, and a planting and maintenance program, based on a complete tree inventory
- Support the Planning Board and Building Department in an advisory role.
- Enhance and support the efforts of the Village’s Consulting Arborist in an advisory role.
- Review and recommend improvements to code provisions related to trees.
- Review and recommend design guidelines related to trees.
- Continue to develop plans for planting and stewardship and monitor the forestry program.
- Meetings of the committee are held at least once a month at Village Hall and are open to the public. The regular meeting date is the second Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. To accommodate the schedules of the members, the date is changed from time to time.
