Stony Point, New York

Ba Mar Manufactured Home Park was originally established on the banks of the Hudson River in the 1940s. During Superstorm Sandy in November 2012, much of the Park was inundated with flood water, and most of the homes were destroyed.

Working with the Town of Stony Point, we obtained approvals to revise the Base Flood Elevations to conform to new 100-year flood models, and to allow reconstruction of the Park.

The Park reconstruction included a completely new site plan and circulation pattern, together with storm- and flood-hardening of infrastructure. The new site plan was created by a collaboration between the Park’s owners and the local emergency services providers. Additionally, units that had been encroaching or adjacent to wetlands were removed. In the process, we were able to maintain a financially sustainable number of units for the Park’s owners.

In addition to SEQRA review, all approvals required determinations of consistency with the Town’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (“LWRP”).

Despite the collaboration with the Town and its emergency services providers, overrides of the Rockland County Planning Board’s reviews were needed.

Revised Base Flood Elevations were approved by the Town Board on August 14, 2018

Variances were granted by the ZBA on January 2, 2020.

Final Site Plan approval was granted by the Planning Board on July 23, 2020
