Westchester County
- The City of Yonkers Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed South Westchester Executive Park Comprehensive Development Plan/ Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center. A hard copy of the DEIS/FEIS is available at the following locations: City of Yonkers Planning Bureau Office, Larkin Plaza Library, Will Library. The online version of the DEIS/FEIS is available at the following publically accessible web site: www.cityofyonkers.com/index.aspx?page=1065.

The action involves the the following two components:

1. The amendment of the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) for South Westchester Executive Park (SWEP) to permit the development by Robert Martin Company, of an additional 817,000 square feet of floor area, including the proposed Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center (ESPC).

2. The Site Plan Application for ESPC, which was described in the DEIS as the development on a 6.5 ± acre portion of SWEP of a pediatric care facility consisting of a 166,024 ± aggregate square foot building and parking for 217 ± cars.

This SEQRA review therefore includes a site-specific review of the ESPC proposal and a generic review of the balance of the SWEP expansion. Other than the proposed use by ESPC and the design for its development on a portion of SWEP as shown on its Site Plan, the balance of the expansion of SWEP, as detailed in the Amended CDP, is based upon a generic plan for development that is consistent in its variety and composition to existing uses at SWEP. The project is located on Executive Boulevard in the City of Yonkers, New York.
