Positive Declaration and Public Scoping
Queens County (Queens) - The New York City Police Department (NYPD), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Police Academy - College Point, Queens may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on April 3, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Union Plaza Care Center, 1st Floor Community Room, 33-23 Union Street, Flushing, NY 11354 (at the intersection of Union and 33rd Avenue). The action involves the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC), in cooperation with the NYPD and DCAS, plan for the development of a new Police Academy in College Point, Queens. The new Police Academy would incorporate many of the NYPD's existing training facilities throughout the City into one consolidated campus, which would be located on approximately 35 acres, including a majority of the Department's Tow Pound site in College Point, Queens (the Project Site). The construction of a new Police Academy on the Project Site would allow for a modern complex that would consolidate in one-campus facilities for civilians, recruits, and active police officers that are currently trained in multiple facilities across the City. The total development size would be up to approximately 1.8 million gross square feet (gsf) and will include indoor training facilities, classrooms, and related support space, an indoor pistol training facility, a tactical village, K-9 units, an outdoor track, a police museum, and a visiting police/lecturer housing facility. The Police Academy will have an above-grade parking facility for up to between 1,800 and 2,000 vehicles. The proposed project would allow for maximum efficiencies in instructional use and operation for recruit, in-service, civilian, and cadet training programs. The project is located at 26-02 Ulmer Street (aka 28-11 28th Avenue and 129-05 31st Avenue) in Queens, New York (the northern portion of the NYPD's College Point Tow Pound Facility).

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
New York County (Manhattan) - The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed City College of New York Science Building and The City University of New York Advanced Science Research Center Project. The action involves a request to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) from The City University of New York (CUNY) to finance and construct The City College of New York (CCNY) Science Building and two CUNY Advanced Science Research Center Buildings (the Proposed Project). The Proposed Action would consist of DASNY's authorization for the expenditure of tax-exempt bond proceeds for the Proposed Project as part of the CUNY Program. The Proposed Project would be built in two phases.
Considering the information in the DEIS, the comments received during the public scoping process, and the substantive concerns expressed by the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC), the Proposed Project identified in the DEIS is no longer considered the preferred alternative. The Dormitory Authority is now considering Alternative 2 as the preferred Alternative and is described as follows: Phase I would consist of the construction of an approximately 163,107 gross square foot, 3 story CCNY Building and an approximately 136,408 gross square foot, 5 story ASRC I building connected by a 115,138 gross square foot shared ground floor and cellar. Phase II is an approximately 212,000 gross square foot, 5 story ASRC II building connected to Phase I.
The project is located at the City College of New York, 135th Street and Convent Avenue, New York, NY 10031.
