Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Suffolk County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sheltair Farmingdale, LLC Relocation and Modernization 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 30 at 3:00 p.m. at the Republic Airport Main Terminal. The action proposes the construction of one 20,000 square feet light general aviation hangar and one 5,000 square feet fixed-based-operator (FBO) building to be located along New Highway. Also included would be tie-downs for 70 aircraft and 13 T-hangars with 168 parking spaces. Along NY109, the proposal includes one FBO building of 30,000 square feet, a maintenance facility of 3,000 square feet, seven buildings each consisting of 30,000 square feet of hangar space with 6,000 square feet of office space, and 14 tie-downs. The fuel farm currently located along New Highway will be relocated to this area. There will be a total of about 500 parking spots.

Also included in this project will be the demolition of hangars 2 & 3, located along New Highway about 1,110 feet south of Conklin Street, the horizontal relocation of 850 feet of Taxiway Golf, and the relocation of Runway 1/19 approximately 450 feet north with the installation of new or relocated lighting, guidance systems, and pavement markings.

The project is located at the Republic Airport in East Farmingdale, New York.
