a. Consider determining that the Proposed Action (Hudson National Golf Club application for a subdivision of its property to create a separate 15-acre lot to be leased for a solar array, an application for an amended special permit for the Club use on the reduced property, and site plan and special permit for the proposed tier 3 solar energy) is an Unlisted Action under SEQRA, declaring the Village Board’s intent to be Lead Agency under SEQRA, and referring the necessary documents to the Village Planning Board as required by law, and the Westchester County Planning Board. Hudson National Golf Course has submitted an application for a subdivision of its property to create a 15-acre sot to be leased for a solar array. The golf course received its initial special permit in 1994. It was later amended in 199. The resolution calls for the Board of Trustees to declare itself Lead Agency for the purposes of the State Environmental Review process.
