Generic Environmental Impact Statements (GEIS)

The Town of Colonie has prepared Generic Environmental Impact Statements (GEIS's) for three areas of the Town totalling approximately 15,100 acres. These studies analyzed the cumulative and long-term impacts of projected growth, and set out policies and procedures for future actions to be undertaken or approved by the Town within the defined areas.

A major result of these studies was the requirement that the developer of each new project contribute a proportionate share of the cost of improvements, such as highway and water system upgrades, that will be needed to offset the impacts of development. These "development mitigation costs" are outlined on the worksheets below.
