Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Nassau County - The Town of Hempstead Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Creation of a Planned Development District, Change of Zone, and a Conceptual Master Plan. Copies of the Final GEIS ar available at the Office of theTown of Hempstead Town Clerk, the Hempstead Public Library, the East Meadow Public Library, the Garden City Public Library and the Uniondale Public Library. The Final GEIS is also available on line at: www.TOH.LI.

The action involves the creation of a Planned Development District (PDD), a change of zone in connection with the redevelopment of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum site and other adjacent properties from the B Residence District, Mitchel Field Hotel District, Mitchel Field Office District and Mitchel Field Office II District to the proposed PDD, and a Conceptual Master Plan for the Lighthouse at Long Island. The rezoning is for the purpose of constructing a new mixed-use community, offering sports and entertainment facilities (centered around an upgraded and renovated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum), residential, hotel, retail, office and open space land uses, as well as off-street parking and other site improvements with the following development program: (a) Nassau Coliseum upgrade and renovation: 1,203,000 square feet (416,000 square feet existing); (b) Hotels: 917 rooms (617 rooms existing); (c) Convention facilities: 200,000 square feet (82,000 square feet existing); (d) Office space: 2,636,254 square feet (1,636,254 square feet existing); (e) Retail space: 500,000 square feet; and (f) Residential: 2,306 dwelling units. Supplemental zoning, traffic and other environmental analyses in the Final GEIS showed that, as an alternative to the Applicant's proposal, lowering the density of development and reducing the size and scale of a potential mixed-use district could eliminate, reduce and/or mitigate the impacts associated with the Lighthouse Development Group, LLC proposal, and could provide the benefits of new mixed-use development to the under-developed Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum property, the Marriott Hotel property, and the residents of the Town of Hempstead. Therefore, the Town Board directed the drafting of the MFM Mitchel Field Mixed-Use District as a lower density alternative to the Planned Development District proposed by the Lighthouse Development Group. This alternative is analyzed in the Final GEIS.

The project is located on the north and south sides of Hempstead Turnpike, East of Earl Ovington Boulevard in the Town of Hempstead, New York.
