[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Glen Cove 5-22-2007. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Editor's Note: This temporary ordinance was set to expire 18 months after adoption. A resolution adopted 2-24-2009 reaffirmed the City Council's intent to continue these provisions until withdrawn or reauthorized upon completion of the Master Plan.
The purpose of this chapter is to implement the provisions of Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law and the regulations of the Department of Environmental Conservation contained in Part 617 of Title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (NYCRR), as amended from time to time. Specifically, this chapter, as permitted at § 617.4(a)(2), sets forth lists of additional Type I applications and sets more inclusive minimum thresholds than those provided in Part 617. This chapter is intended to be a temporary emergency measure to preserve property, specifically, the ability for property owners to apply for minor subdivision, while maintaining protections over life, property, health and natural resources. It is the intention of the City Council that this chapter and its provisions shall be withdrawn from the Code after a period of 18 months unless reauthorized following completion of the Master Plan process initiated in 2006.
All applications deemed major subdivisions in accordance with Chapter 245, Subdivision of Land, in the City of Glen Cove shall be deemed Type I actions for the purpose of compliance with 6 NYCRR 617.
Site plan applications involving the construction of new multifamily structures or townhouses as defined in Chapter 280, Zoning, in the City of Glen Cove shall be deemed Type I actions for the purpose of compliance with 6 NYCRR 617.
Except as hereafter amended by the City Council of the City of Glen Cove, this chapter shall have no effect on the determination of Type I, Type II or unlisted status for applications other than major subdivision applications.
Should any section or provision of this chapter be decided by the courts to be unconstitutional or invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of the chapter as a whole or any part thereof other than the part so decided to be unconstitutional or invalid.
