In partnership with Clean Air Action Network, HOTH continues to investigate and report news about Moreau Town Planning Board plans to approve the Saratoga Biochar Solutions Facility, without conducting a State Environmental Quality Review (SEQRA). HOTH will be on hand to support the community at the meeting on Monday at 7pm, in the Moreau Office Complex, 351 Reynolds Road, Moreau, NY 12828.
If an agency makes an improper decision or allows a project that is subject to SEQR to start, and fails to undertake a proper review, citizens or groups who can demonstrate that they may be harmed by this failure may take legal action against the agency under Article 78 of the New York State Civil Practice Law and Rules. Project approvals may be rescinded by a court and a new review required under SEQR. New York State's court system has consistently ruled in favor of strong compliance with the provisions of SEQR (see also case law to be posted later). https://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/357.html
