A public hearing on the Draft GEIS will be held on July 19, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at the Nassau University Medical Center's auditorium located at 2201 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, NY 11554. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until August 2, 2010.
The action involves the adoption of a Campus Land Use Plan and the redevelopment of approximately 35 acres of the 50 acre Nassau University Medical Center Campus consistent with the Campus Land Use Plan (January 2009, revised January 2010). The proposed redevelopment will include the reconstruction and expansion of medical resident housing, the development of health related research and medical office space, and health related commercial uses to complement the existing 19 story Dynamic Care Building. The 50 acre property will be re-subdivided as necessary to meet funding and/or leasing requirements. The land use plan for the campus includes plans for open space, new and redesigned parking, improved signage, pedestrian connections throughout the campus, and appropriate improvements to existing infrastructure necessary to accommodate proposed development. The project is located at 2201 Hempstead Turnpike in East Meadow, Town of Hempstead, New York.
