What We Do

Land Use & SEQRA

Pattern holds a long-standing commitment to balancing development and the environment. We believe that fairness and predictability must be restored to the land use approval process if the Hudson Valley wants to grow. For instance, one of Pattern’s most frequently cited efforts has been our work on regulatory reform of SEQRA, the State Environmental Quality Review Act. Through a collaborative approach, we have worked to advance the goal of thorough environmental reviews that produce faster results.
