Municipal Environmental Review

Our municipal clients are often required to perform environmental review of projects they wish to undertake. We guide them through the intricacies of the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act. Where appropriate, we prepare negative and positive declarations of environmental impact, and guide our clients in preparing and/or reviewing full environmental impact statements.

In our capacity as municipal counsel, we also are called upon to review environmental submissions from parties seeking to perform projects within our clients' jurisdictions. We provide experienced guidance to those clients to make sure that all legal safeguards are enforced to ensure the protection of their residents and compliance with SEQRA.
