Chappaqua Forward: Form Based Code – A New Direction

Last night, I shared what I believe is the right direction for the Form Based Code, and I was grateful to finally do so after hours of listening and working with my fellow board members, Town Hall staff, and residents to review the Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS). After discussing the public comments received to date, the Town Board voted last night to close the public hearing on the DGEIS and to direct staff and our professional consultants to take the steps necessary to enact this new approach for the Form Based Code.  To summarize, we will complete the Final GEIS and State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) Findings Statement using the current study area, and revise the legislation to limit the Form Based District to a single area: the North Greeley corridor.
