Town/Village of Harrison seeks to redevelop a NYSDEC Brownfield site of 11.23 acres to establish within a municipal park, a recreational facility consisting of open space, a baseball field, a soccer field, a playground, walkways and a nature trail along with parking and service buildings to support these facilities. The project will encompass approximately 5.7 acres and would require approximately 10,000 cubic yards of imported soils to finish grade and provide the necessary top soil for seeding and sodding of the park areas. At the DECs direction, and in anticipation of park completion, the top soil was not included in the brownfields project. The project is to occur within State-designated Freshwater Wetland J-3 (Class II) and as proposed, Harrison would fill in 0.39 acres of wetland and 1.7 acres of adjacent area. To mitigate the loss of this wetland and adjacent area, Harrison has provided 1 acre of enhanced 100-foot adjacent area. Harrison is also proposing to manage invasive Phragmites australis and other invasive plants by treating the identified areas of infestation with the herbicide glyphosate (a/k/a Rodeo) and replanting with native species on an area not to exceed 9.0 acres.
