Onondaga County - The Village of East Syracuse Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Syracuse Site Transformation Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the Site Plan Permit Application for Phase 1 of a Site Transformation Project, and a possible future Site Plan Permit Application for a proposed Phase 2.

The Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) East Syracuse campus is comprised of 112 buildings covering approximately 90 contiguous acres. Many of the buildings were used in support of manufacturing or research operations that are no longer being conducted by BMS. The buildings to be demolished, and the area to be landscaped, in Phase 1 cover about 10 acres, and with the addition of a proposed Phase 2 of the Project, the overall Project will cover up to 25 acres on the north side of the BMS campus. Prior to or in coordination with demolition activities, site utilities will be rerouted as needed to support the remaining operations, and a new pipe rack will be constructed to replace one removed during the demolition.

In addition to demolition of the buildings, some existing buildings will be renovated. By conclusion of the Project, significant portions of paved areas will be removed or covered, and topsoil spread, seeded and landscaped to provide areas of vegetation to create mowable lawn and meadow areas. The overall project consists of two phases: Phase 1 (July 2010 - November 2012), and a proposed Phase 2 (March 2011 - October 2013).

On April 29, 2010, BMS submitted a Site Plan Permit Application for Phase 1 of the Project. A second Site Plan Permit Application for Phase 2 will be submitted as required in the future. However, BMS has provided a conceptual work plan for proposed Phase 2.

The project is located at 6000 Thompson Road in the Village of East Syracuse, New York.
