What Makes a Referral Complete?

Once a proposed action is determined to be referable, a complete referral package must be submitted to the OCPB for review prior to a decision being made by the local board. It is the responsibility of the local board reviewing the project to submit the project to the County for review, not the applicant.


The following items are required for a referral to be considered complete:

  • A fully completed Referral Notice prepared by an appropriate municipal official.
  • A copy of a local application as required by the referring municipal board.
  • A survey, site plan and/or subdivision plan.                     
  • A completed SEQR Environmental Assessment Form (EAF) and related materials.
  • Any additional information that would facilitate review of the proposed action, such as meeting minutes, other submission materials, etc.
