NPV has served as the Village Environmental and Planning Consultant for the Village of Southampton since 2006.  In this role, NPV provides day to day consulting services for each of the Village boards including application review, coastal and wetland permit review, wetland delineation, and SEQRA review and administration.   Day to review of applications includes plan review, review of stormwater pollution prevention plans for site development, coordination with applicants and involved departments/agencies, preparation of resolutions and permits, and presentation of project reviews and reports to the Village Boards. Our affiliated firm, Nelson + Pope serves as the Village Engineer.

In addition to day-to-day consulting services to the boards, NPV has provided long range planning and environmental services to the Village for numerous projects including the completion of land use plans, watershed management, stormwater planning and support for grant funding. NPV has identified suitable locations for implementation of green infrastructure projects and has prepared the designs, obtained permits and implemented the projects.

The following examples illustrate how NPV’s services have resulted in improvements within the Village:

  • The Lake Agawam watershed management plan was adopted, and recommendations are continuing to be implemented and the plan has provided support for grant funding.
  • The build out analysis and SEQRA for an addendum to the Comprehensive Plan prepared by NPV allowed the village to adopt zoning amendments for the historic downtown Village Business District.
