The Village Board of the Village of Haverstraw, as lead agency under the State Environmental Quality Review Act, has determined that the proposed redevelopment of the Chair Factory Site in the Village of Haverstraw as proposed by the Haverstraw Community Chair Factory, L.L.C., may have a potential significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (“DEIS”) that is adequate for public comment has been prepared.  The DEIS is available on-line at and at Village Hall at 40 New Main Street, Haverstraw, NY 10927. A public hearing on the DEIS will be held on January 29, 2024, at 7:05 pm at the Village Hall (40 New Main Street, Haverstraw, NY 10927).

The Village Board will accept written comments on the DEIS until February 12, 2024.  Written comments can be submitted by mail to or dropped off at Village Hall at 40 New Main Street, Haverstraw, NY 10927.
