ENB - Region 1 Notices 06/09/2010

Positive Declaration

Suffolk County - The Village of Sag Harbor Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed John Jermain Memorial Library may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposed enlargement of the John Jermain Memorial Library with a 7,267 square foot, two story addition with a lower level to the existing 7,084 square foot existing library building. There is no existing parking and none is proposed. The proposed building would maintain a distinctly different architectural appearance from the existing building: significant portions of the new building would be glass.

The existing building will be renovated, restored and modernized, and together with the expansion the facility will continue to be a destination with short term visits where patrons may borrow from the library collection. The proposed expansion is also to provide the library patrons with dedicated program and research space, a community room, a business center, a periodical reading area and a community art gallery. The project is located at 201 Main Street in the Village of Sag Harbor, New York.
