The Town Board adopted the MOD Findings Statement on March 20, 2023, completing the State Environmental Quality Review Process.  The next steps would be for the applicants (Evergreen Manor and Gyrodyne) whose parcels were designated as MOD to submit an application to the Planning Board for Site Plan Approval.  The application process in front of the Planning Board will be open to the public and will require numerous meetings and public hearings.

Please note: COVID 19 has affected the schedule and timing of the FEIS preparation.

The applicants are in the process of preparing a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) which will include modifications to their proposals in response to comments received during the public hearings on the MOD Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The Final EIS, which is prepared by the developers and their technical staffs, will consist of:

  • The draft EIS,
  • Any necessary corrections or revisions to the draft EIS (in response to public comments or new information received),
  • Copies or a summary of all substantive comments received, indicating their source (correspondence, hearing, etc.), and
  • The lead agency's responses to substantive comments.

As part of the EIS process, any changes to the development programs proposed after the DEIS must be presented and analyzed as part of the FEIS. Once the FEIS document is received and accepted as complete by the Town, the document will be circulated to all involved and interested agencies and a public hearing on the FEIS will be scheduled by the Town Board.

We anticipate more regular updates soon. Please continue to check this website regularly for new information.

what is the MOD?

The MOD or "Medically Oriented District"  is a planning strategy developed as part of Envision Cortlandt, the Town’s Sustainable Comprehensive Plan as a mechanism to encourage revitalization and economic expansion in the area immediately surrounding the hospital center and along Crompond Road (Route 202/35) corridor by providing a planning and zoning framework to guide future development.   In the Sustainable Comprehensive Plan,  the goals of the MOD included providing both medical uses and housing that would allow for both a continuum of care (aging in place) as well as attracting and maintaining millennial workforce housing (to combat brain drain).  The intent is to create a healthy, mixed-use, neighborhood-scale district that benefits residents and employees of the district as well as patients and families visiting the MOD.
