ENB - Region 1 Notices

Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Nassau County Police and Fire Communictions Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the transfer of property within the right-of-way (ROW) of the Wantagh State Parkway owned by State Parks to Nassau County for the construction of parking servicing of the County's Police & Fire Communications Center. This Center has been developed through rehabilitation of an existing facility and associated parking on adjacent land. Work on the state land would be accomplished through a permit to allow construction of a semi-pervious parking area on the property. This will be followed by a land exchange providing substitution parcels to be identified and agreed to between the State and County. The project is located adjacent to 1194 Prospect St., Wantagh, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Suffolk County - The Town of Huntington Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Housing Help, Inc. Proposed Development Of Matinecock Court (Site Plan). The action involves the construction of 155 multi-family housing units on a 14.574 acre parcel located within a R-3M Residence district containing no garages or driveways and including a superintendent's apartment. A total of twenty (20) buildings are proposed, to include a community building and a sewage treatment plant (STP) building. Of the 155 condominium units, 78 units would be owned by Housing Help Inc. (HHI) and would be available as rentals to those who meet the income requirements as specified in the EIS and the remaining 77 units would be privately owned by individuals. As specified in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), the privately owned units and rental units will be intermixed within the entire 155-unit development. Playground areas, in addition to an on-site community building, sewage treatment plant (STP-within the northern portion of the site), recharge basin (within the northwestern portion of the site), and parking for 334 vehicles are proposed. The subject property fronts two (2) county roads, Pulaski Road (CR 11) and Elwood Road (CR 10). Although the applicant's preferred plan proposes site access from Pulaski Road with an emergency crash gate on Elwood Road, there is an alternative access scenario plan that addresses the Suffolk County Department of Public Works [SCDPW] concerns that depicts two site access points, one on Pulaski Road and one on Elwood Road. Public water is to be provided by the Suffolk County Water Authority. The project is located on the northwest corner of Pulaski Road (CR 11) and Elwood Road (CR 10) in East Northport, within the Town of Huntington, New York.
