Townwide GEIS

August 3, 2017

Chazen is currently working with the Town of Malta in preparing an update to the Town’s Townwide Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS). A draft update has been completed and is currently in the Town review process. The scope of work includes preparation of a buildout analysis utilizing the Town’s recently update zoning scheme, development of two alternate growth scenarios and preparation of a townwide traffic impact analysis examining 32 intersections and related highway segments. The GEIS will identify both traditional mitigation measures and alternate transportation strategies to accommodate growth. The GEIS scope also includes examination of the town’s recreation and open spaces resources, trails, and infrastructure. The GEIS includes an update to the town’s fee in lieu of mitigation measures.
