Village of Sag Harbor Environmental Planner

Project Location: Sag Harbor, NY
Client: Village of Sag Harbor

NPV has served as the Village of Sag Harbor’s planner and environmental consultant since 2016. In this role, NPV routinely reviews and tracks site plan and subdivision applications for the Village Planning Board; attends public meetings to present and answer questions and provides SEQRA review and administration. For wetlands applications, NPV delineates wetlands, reviews applications and provides feedback to applicants and the Village Harbor Committee, and prepares permits. In addition, NPV conducts Coastal Consistency reviews and prepares recommendations for consideration by the Harbor Committee for consistency with the policies of the Village’s adopted Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP).

NPV has completed a number of long-range planning efforts on behalf of the Village. NPV prepared the Water Quality Improvement Project Plan (WQIPP) for the Village early in 2016 which identified multiple locations for implementation of Green Infrastructure throughout the Village. The WQIPP has been used as the basis for over a dozen grant funded implementation projects, for which NPV assisted in the grant applications. NPV and N+P have been responsible for design and implementation of rain gardens and other Green Infrastructure improvements, as well as developing public engagement and educational materials, and water quality monitoring to demonstrate the long-term benefits of Green Infrastructure.

NPV is working on the Village LWRP Update which will incorporate an updated Harbor Management Plan, which is anticipated to be completed in the Fall of 2021. In addition, NPV has prepared updated Harbor Management Charts which are being considered for adoption with amendments to Chapter 278 Waterways of Village Code.
