AKRF prepared extensive environmental documentation under New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) for the planned integrated development of the 2,300-acre Tuxedo Reserve, a new community in the Town of Tuxedo, NY.
The planning approach for Tuxedo Reserve has consistently been to adapt the quality of life features of small-town America to a contemporary community, all within an environment that is respectful of the natural resources that exist on the site.
The conservation-oriented master plan concept will provide compact residential neighborhoods with more than 1,000 residential units as well as a walkable neighborhood center with retail and commercial, recreational, and community amenity uses.
The neighborhoods will be clustered to preserve three-quarters of the site as natural conservation areas that protect wetlands, floodplains, waterbodies, steep slopes, mature woodlands, and critical wildlife habitat.
AKRF prepared a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS), a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS), a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), and Statement of Findings for the project. Recent modifications to the project program required further SEQRA analysis and the firm prepared a Technical Memorandum including supplemental fiscal and recreation demand analyses.
