DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – The environmental review process for the controversial Rivertowns Square project is in progress again, less than two weeks after being halted.
Dobbs Ferry Mayor Hartley Connett announced the lifted suspension of the review, required by the State Environmental Quality Review Act, in an email Thursday.
“Following a suspension of the review process communicated several weeks ago, the Village Board of Trustees has been contacted by the developer of the Rivertowns Square project as Lead Agency of the review process and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (‘FEIS’),” Connett said in the email. “Accordingly, the Village has notified its consultants to continue the review of the FEIS under SEQRA to ensure that the FEIS is adequate and accurate before the Board of Trustees can accept as complete.”
In the email, Connett said that once the review process is complete, the environmental impact statement will be released to the public for a comment period. Connett said there is not yet a time frame for when that will occur.
