Negative Declaration

Ontario County - The Ontario County Board of Supervisors, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Purchase and Development of a Permanent FLCC Geneva Campus Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the purchase of a 4.6 ± acres property including an approximately 130,000 square feet masonry building in the City of Geneva for $400,000 from the Geneva City School District, funding of approximately $12 million for said purchase, design of facilities and construction of a permanent Finger Lakes Community College Extension Campus to be known as the FLCC Geneva Campus Center. The County has hired an architect to develop alternative concept design options and associated cost analysis for the current site involving remodeling, demolition of all existing buildings and construction of a new building or demolition of a portion of the building and remodeling the remaining building. The cost of construction of new facilities on a different site have also been developed as an option. The County will base its selection of the preferred design alternative on the basis of which alternative meets the college's long term needs the best, the long term cost and the comments received during the environmental review period from the City of Geneva and the public. Upon selection of the preferred alternative, the County will hire an architect, finalize the design and fund the actual construction. At present time, up to $6 million in funding is available from the State of New York through the State University of New York (SUNY) and $6,005,300 allocated in the County Capital Improvement Plan for this project. The project is located at 63 Pulteney Street in the City of Geneva, New York.
