Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Remediation and Demolition Plan for Nissequogue River State Park and Former Kings Park Psychiatric Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The NYS OPRHP has jurisdiction over approximately 518 acres of the former Kings Park Psychiatric Center (KPPC). Part of this is being managed as Nissequogue River State Park, but the remainder of the property requires a comprehensive remediation study. While the remediation study is being completed NYS OPRHP is proposing an initial phase of building demolitions, focused on structures that are highly deteriorated and/or don't have potential for adaptive reuse. Safety risks will be reduced by demolishing and removing 14 highly deteriorated structures totaling 222,000 square feet. Asbestos abatement and monitoring will also be necessary. Various deteriorated, unneeded asphalt and concrete roads and parking areas will also be removed. The project includes the restoration and landscaping of demolition sites, and removing hazardous trees. Finally, an experimental steam tunnel remediation project will be implemented. The project is located in Kings Park, Town of Smithtown, New York.
