ENB - Region 2 Notices 10/28/2009

Negative Declaration

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hudson Yards Parking Text Amendment will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by New York City Department of City Planning (NYC DCP) for a zoning text amendment to the parking regulations of the Special Hudson Yards District in its entirety, the 42nd Street Perimeter Area of the Special Clinton District, and Preservation Area P-2 of the Special Garment Center District. The proposed text amendment would decrease anticipated amounts of parking in this area by eliminating requirements for off-street parking and reducing the rates of parking that would be permitted for new residential and commercial development. The project is located within Manhattan Community Districts 4 and 5, New York and is generally bounded by West 43rd Street on the north; Eighth Avenue to the east; West 30th Street on the south; and Eleventh Avenue on the west.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Richmond County (Staten Island) - The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation (NYC DPR), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Fresh Kills Park East Park Roads. Copies of the Final SEIS are available for public inspection at the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, The Arsenal, Central Park, 830 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10065, Joshua Laird, Phone: (212) 360-3402; or at the following Staten Island branches of the New York Public Library: St. George, Dongan Hills, Great Kills, Huguenot Park, New Dorp, Port Richmond, Richmondtown, South Beach, Stapleton, Todt-Hill-Westerleigh, Tottenville, and West New Brighton; and on the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation's website at: http://www.nycgovparks.org/sub_your_park/fresh_kills_park/html/fresh_kills_park.html.

The action involves the proposal by NYC DPR to build public park roads (East Park road system) as a component of the larger Fresh Kills Park, which was the subject of a comprehensive environmental review that was completed with a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) released on March 13, 2009. The East Park road system is proposed to provide the opportunity for vehicular connections between the West Shore Expressway and Richmond Avenue. NYC DPR is examining various options in alignment and design for the East Park road system, which could include two or four lane roads across East Park with new connections at Richmond Hill Road, Yukon Avenue, and Forest Hill Road, or a two-lane loop road around the base of the landfill, also with connections at Richmond Hill Road, Yukon Avenue, and Forest Hill Road. Development of the East Park road system will proceed in three phases, including: 1) construction of a final landfill cover at Landfill Section 6/7 with the purpose of closing the landfill in a manner that is protective of the environment and, in the process, creating a road embankment across the landfill section that can accommodate future park roads (this phase is assumed to be completed by 2011); 2) construction and opening of the Yukon Avenue Connection across the landfill (by 2016); and 3) completion of the East Park Road network (after 2016). The analysis years presented in this FSEIS correspond to the analysis years presented in the FGEIS. These years are not necessarily the completion years for road construction (i.e., road construction could be completed earlier), but they are analysis years by which selected components of the project are reasonably projected to be completed. The project is located in the southwest portion of Staten Island, New York, within Staten Island Community Board 2. East Park is approximately 482 acres in size and is City-owned property under the jurisdiction of the New York City Department of Sanitation (NYC DSNY). The boundaries of East Park are defined to the east by Richmond Avenue, to the west and south by Main and Richmond Creeks, respectively, and to the north by the William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge.
