The SEQR process MUST be completed before ANY discretionary decision can be made by the Town, unless it is classified as a "Type II" action. This action does not seem to be Type II, but here is a link to all of the SEQR Type II actions.

Frankly, if the attorney for the Town thinks that SEQR is only for 'big projects that would change the environment or landscape in a dramatic way', he seriously doesn't understand the SEQR process. The Town Board HAS TO go through the SEQR process to arrive at that kind of conclusion (unless it is a Type II action).

There is also a SEQR Type I list, where certain actions are REQUIRED to take a longer path. The rezoning may not be on the Type I list, but if the rezoning involves 25 or more acres, the longer path is required.

The danger for the Town is that ANY misstep in the SEQR process would virtually automatically be a loser in court action was taken. Far, far better to follow the process than to either not understand it or to ignore it. If the process if followed, the Town Board still retains full control of the environmental decisions. Better to follow the process than to get sued, surely lose, and have to start from scratch.

Here is a link that includes the Type I and Type II list. If the proposed rezoning and construction of a new Town Hall is not on either list, it is classified as 'Unlisted', and there also is a prescribed process via SEQR.

Really you witnessed drug deals going on while drinking a beer outside a corner store. Then you blame the police for troubles in your neighborhood. Be a man do something positive and stop waiting for society to babysit your useless ass

Why not use some of that money to fix up the city's Fire stations. They're in just as bad shape as these houses are.

Subsidized housing? Don't go the way of Schenectady, let it continue to be the hub of subsidized living for the Capital District and beyond. You will condemn all of the revitalization efforts that have been made to improve Bridge St. Please don't even consider it, as it should go without saying, subsidies do not create revenue, only a massive drain of tax dollars with increased welfare rolls and increased crime rates. Absolutely not conducive to economic development and will most certainly destroy any business on the South side.
