Dutchess County - The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed MTA Police K-9 Training Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by MTA for the development of a K·9 training facility on MTA owned property in East Fishkill, New York. The K-9 unit currently operates out of existing buildings on the South parcel of the site and approximately 10 dogs and 10 officers use these facilities on a typical training day. The proposed development would involve the construction of a new approximately 15,000 square foot building, parking, training fields, a new access road and a new sanitary treatment system, all situated on the North parcel of the property, that would better serve K·9 training operations. The new facility would include both administrative and canine training areas, including 26 indoor/outdoor kennels, a medical examination room, classrooms, a warehouse training area, canopy covered training areas, a mockup of a MTA train platform with two rail cars and a fenced in and alarmed magazine area. The proposed project is not intended to support a programmatic change in MTA K-9 training, as the new facility would typically serve the same number of dogs and staff as the present program. However, the new facility will improve training capability and additional space has been provided for semi-annual training events for up to 50 dogs and 50 officers. No dogs or officers would board at the site. The action involves permits for Freshwater Wetlands, Stream Disturbance and Groundwater Discharge. The project is located at 14 Perin Lane and 229 Seaman Road in East Fishkill, New York.
