Suffolk County - The Board of Trustess of the Smithtown Library, as lead agency, has determined that the Proposed Addition, Alterations and Site Improvements at the Smithtown Branch of the Smithtown Library will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a building addition, interior modifications and site improvements to the Smithtown Branch of the Smithtown Library. Specifically, a 10,000 ± square-foot (gross floor area), three-story addition is proposed on the north side of the existing 22,000 ± square-foot building, including lower, main and upper levels to complement the existing facility. The proposed addition would be constructed in existing landscaped and walkway areas. New walkway areas would result in the loss of approximately five parking spaces, reducing the total on-site parking to 74 spaces. The proposed building addition would house a new lobby, children's library, exhibit area, staircases, and an elevator, on the main level; new stack areas on the upper level; and a new community room with restrooms on the lower level. Interior spaces of the existing library building would be reorganized to allow for a teen center area, improved staff spaces, an expanded audio-visual area and computer laboratory, a computer service and graphics room, improved seating and reading areas, and additional restrooms. The proposed site improvements also include the installation of a new on-site sanitary system and new drainage structures (i.e., drywells). The project is located at the Smithtown Branch of the Smithtown Library, One North Country Road, Incorporated Village of the Branch, New York.
