Conditioned Negative Declaration

Ulster County - The City of Kingston School District, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kingston City Library Rehabilitation and Reuse will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. There will be a 30 day public comment period commencing with the date of this notice. The action involves the rehabilitation and reuse of the Kingston City Library building as a creative arts and technology center. The renovations would render the building ADA compliant. In addition to the interior renovation, a modest addition to the rear of the building (southeast quadrant) is proposed. The addition is approximately 250 square feet per floor for a total of 500 square feet and would include an elevator and toilet room. Parking will be provided in existing lots adjacent to the Natatorium. The project is located at 403 Broadway in the City of Kingston, New York.

The conditions are: Because the proposed project is a structure listed on both the National and State Register's of Historic Places, the interior and exterior renovation must be consistent to the extent practicable with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. The project has and will continue to consult with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) regarding all proposed interior and exterior renovation plans. As such, although the project may have an impact on historic and cultural resources, the Lead Agency has determined that the mitigation measures identified and required by the Lead Agency, pursuant to the procedures in subdivision 617.7 (d), will modify the Proposed Action so that no significant adverse environmental impacts will result.
