ENB - Region 9 Notices 8/1/2012
Niagara County - The City of North Tonawanda, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Webster Street Green Infrastructure Drainage Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the City of North Tonawanda to design and construct green infrastructure drainage improvements on Webster Street as part of a Green Innovation Grant Program project administered by the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation. The project involves the creation of approximately 5,350 square feet of biofiltration area including street trees and appropriate plantings within the terrace area of Webster Street. Additionally, 1,500 square feet of permeable pavers will be installed with an underdrain filtration system linked to the biofiltration areas replacing existing impermeable concrete sidewalk area, all in order to filter contaminants before being discharged into Tonawanda Creek. The project is 1,100 feet in length. The project builds upon the Manhattan Street Green Infrastructure improvement project in 2010. The project is located on Webster Street from the intersection of Sweeney Street to the south, to the intersection of Main Street to the north in the City of North Tonawanda, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
Erie County - The Roswell Park Cancer Institute, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Roswell Park Cancer Institute Clinical Sciences Center Project. The Final EIS is available at the Mirand Library, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Research Studies Center, 3rd Floor, Carlton Street and Elm Street, Buffalo, NY 14263, Phone: (716) 845-2300 and on line at: http://www.scribd.com/roswellpark.
The action involves proposal by Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) to develop and operate an 11 story, approximately 142,000 gross square foot Clinical Sciences Center (CSC) adjacent to the Roswell Park Main Hospital. Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the region's only comprehensive cancer center, finds that it must expand to meet critical operating needs. The CSC project will enable RPCI to substantially enhance its ability to continue to deliver high quality comprehensive cancer care services in the Buffalo Niagara region. The CSC would be functionally integrated with the RPCI Main Hospital and would improve the ability of the entire Institute to meet its stated mission. Specifically, RPCI requires additional treatment space to better serve patients of its busy clinics including the chemo infusion and breast clinics, as well as space to accommodate the needs of the medical staff. The new space will also help to meet the community's need for preventive services that currently cannot be provided due to the high patient demand on the existing Roswell facilities. Construction and operation of the Clinical Sciences Center project will bring jobs and spending to the downtown Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, a key investment area and regional economic driver. The project is located at the northwest corner of Carlton Street and Michigan Avenue in the City of Buffalo, New York.
