Click here to register for this Friday’s one-hour Bagels with the Boards program at Touro Law Center, which will focus on a difficult legal issue that arises in the context of environmental impact assessments under New York’s State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA): when to assess the cumulative environmental impacts of related projects or treat the projects as separate. Touro is thrilled to offer attorneys, municipal officials, planners and others the opportunity to learn more about this complex issue, which often poses a hurdle in the permitting process for local projects.
Touro’s speaker, Alan J. Knauf, Esq., of Knauf Shaw LLP in Rochester, New York, has presented on this issue many times and served on the 1998 SEQRA Cumulative Impact working group appointed to resolve various competing interests involved in cumulative environmental impact analysis. Mr. Knauf was named by Best Lawyers in America as “Lawyer of the Year” in 2014 in Rochester for both Environmental Litigation and Land Use. He is also listed by Best Lawyers for Zoning Litigation, and as a Superlawyer in the areas of Environmental Law, Land Use/Zoning and Real Estate Law. Mr. Knauf has been counsel on over 100 reported decisions, including the recent New York fracking case Norse Energy Corp. USA v. Town of Dryden.
