Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Richmond County (Staten Island) - The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Great Kills Park/Cedar Grove Beach Rehabilitation may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until March 28, 2011. A public scoping session will be held on March 16, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Board 2, Lou Caravone Community Service Building, 460 Fifth Avenue, Staten Island, NY. The Draft Scope is available from the contact person listed below and online at: http://www.nyc.gov/parks/cedargroveeis.

The action involves a proposal for the rehabilitation of the Cedar Grove Beach, an approximately l4 acre site in the New Dorp community of Staten lsland (Staten Island Community District 2), with the main goal being to provide improved access to this area for the general public. The project site currently contains a number of structures, which had traditionally been used for seasonal summer occupancy. The structures were vacant as of September 30, 2010. Some of these structures are anticipated to be adaptively reused, while others are proposed for demolition. The project is divided into two phases: Phase One includes demolition of a majority of the structures on site and adaptive reuse of others. It also includes removal of foundation remains, planting of beach grass and other native plantings, repair of existing parking areas and minor rehabilitation of the existing pick up sport (softball/junior soccer) play area. Phase Two involves construction of a new playground and new bike path. The project is located at the Great Kills Park/Cedar Grove Beach in Staten Island, New York.
