Orleans County - The Village Board of the Village of Albion, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bullard Park Improvements Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed multi-year, phased improvement plan for Bullard Park. The project will consist of improvements exclusively within the existing park footprint and the 26.1 acre parcel that it occupies. Among the proposed improvements will be the construction of parking lot and driveway improvements; construction of a new concession and storage building, lodge, spray park area, amphitheater and other related facilities; improvements to walking trails; relocation of an existing softball field and other general improvements. General earthwork, grading, seeding and drainage improvements will also be proposed. There is sufficient room to provide on-site storm water management including the proposed installation of storm water detention ponds.
The existing Park is a high use recreational area consisting of softball fields, picnic areas, tennis I basketball courts, skateboard area, sledding hill and much open area utilized for various activities including youth football and little league baseball. Many of the existing park facilities are in need of repair or replacement and will best be addressed as part of a comprehensive improvement plan where additional features and enhancements will also be undertaken. This comprehensive improvement plan has primarily been developed by the Albion "Bullard Park Visioning Committee" and has been conceptualized for advancement and environmental review by Chatfield Engineers, P.E. The "Visioning Committee" has involved public participation and has gained the support of all local groups and organizations that currently utilize the Park.
The site currently has access to public water, sanitary sewer services, and electric and communication utilities. It is anticipated that the existing utilities will support the nature of all proposed park improvements, although some extension, modifying and upsizing may be necessary. The increased use and vehicular traffic that these proposed improvements will likely generate can be handled adequately by existing highway network, primarily the Route 31 corridor on which the park is located. Entrance and exit features will be improved In accordance to all requirements of New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT).
The project is located on the northeast corner of NYS Route 31 (East Avenue) and Clarendon Road in the Village of Albion, New York.
