These documents are in the public record at the Village office. Meeting minutes are available on the Pittsford Village web site. There is a tremendous amount of documentation available, we are posting the most important documents as they become available.
Environmental Review (SEQR) - This is the official environmental review passed by the Board of Trustees. It is a long document with lots of useful information. Part 1 is project description, Part 2 is a form listing the possible environmental concerns, Part 3 is a detailed writeup of findings for each item labeled as a potential environmental concern and starts on page 22.
75 Monroe Traffic Study (2007) - Traffic study to 75 Monroe. It does list several concerns including:
- Vehicles will have difficulty leaving the site during evening rush hour.
- Vehicles traveling over the Canal bridge at >40mph will have insufficient site distance to stop for traffic exiting 75 Monroe Ave.
- Traffic has remained constant between 2001 and 2010. [Note: no one believes this, residents believe traffic has increased substantially in this time]
- The future is not so bright. Construction at 3750 Monroe in the town and 75 Monroe in the Village will put critical intersections "over capacity" with "15-60 minute" delays.
R5 Zoning - This is the zoning laws that apply to 75 Monroe.
Architectural Review Board Report - Meeting minutes of the APRB when they voted that the 75 Monroe plans are NOT compatible with the scale and massing of the Village.
SHPO Report - Report from the NY State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). It does not look like they thoroughly review the project. Their advise was to plant some trees.
APRB Consultant Report - Report from Crawford & Stearns, April 27, 2011. This firm specializes in preservation architecture and their report covers the compatibility with the character of Pittsford Village. They liked the version of plans better than previous plans and they liked the architectural style and orientation of buildings. Their statements on building size were inconsistent: "the new buildings do not have a residential scale to the buildings" but they "establish compatibility with canal side areas of the Village." The report focuses on architectural style and skirts the issue of the physical size being appropriate for the Village. They did make the statement that the concept is "compatible with the historic character of the Village of Pittsford."
Timeline - This is the timeline for the 75 Monroe project. This comes from the flyer mailed to residents by the Village.
DEC Cleanup Plan - This big document contains the details of the cleanup plan for 75 Monroe. It covers lots of details even smaller things like cleaning your boots when leaving the site and procedures for cleaning trucks that leave the site before entering public roads.
DEC Addendum to Cleanup plan - An addendum to the cleanup plan that discusses removal of the building.
DEC Draft RIW - This is a document from the DEC about the site cleanup. It is mostly useful because it has the relevant DEC contacts that are in charge of this project.
