Positive Declaration

Albany County - The Town of Colonie Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Boght Road GEIS - Route 9 Update may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the acceptance of a Generic Environmental Impact Statement for Boght Road - Route 9 Update. Between 2005 and 2011, a number of projects in the Boght Road - Columbia Street Area, particularly within the sub-area of Route 9 from Route 9R to Dunsbach Ferry Road, Old Loudon Road, and Route 9R between Johnson Road and Route 9 (Route 9 sub-area), were proposed for approval by the Town of Colonie Planning Board. Upon review of the proposed projects, it became apparent that the projects were substantially different than the projected development evaluated in the 1989 Boght Road - Columbia Street Area GEIS. In 2011, the "Final Technical Memorandum: Boght Road GEIS - Route 9 Update" was prepared by Creighton Manning Engineering, LLP to identify reasonable improvements in the Route 9 sub-area. On March 13, 2012, the Planning Board classified the projected development and its potential impacts, which were identified in the Final Technical Memorandum: Boght Road GEIS - Route 9 Update, as a Type 1 action; issued a positive declaration; and recommended the preparation of a Draft Supplemental GEIS. On March 13, 2012, the Planning Board further determined that the Draft Supplemental GEIS was complete for public comment. This Draft Supplemental GEIS evaluates new traffic conditions and potential impacts and identifies short term and long term transportation infrastructure improvements, linkages and transit/pedestrian related improvements.

The project is located Boght Road - Columbia Street Area of the Town of Colonie, New York.
