Otsego County - The Village of Cooperstown Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Main Street Sidewalk Replacement and Green Infrastructure Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a plan to remove and replace approximately 39,600 square feet of concrete sidewalk and 4,160 linear feet of curb on both sides of Main Street between River Street and Pine Boulevard. The majority of the sidewalks are in great need of repair due to poor infrastructure conditions and safety hazards. Included in the project is rehabilitation and repair of 42 existing traditional streets lamps along both sides of the street. The street lamps are planned to be retrofitted with LED sockets and lamps. Many of the trees currently growing along the street have become too large and as a result have adversely impacted utilities and caused heaving in the sidewalk due to large root systems. The existing trees are planned to be cleared and grubbed within the project area. All trees are planned to be replaced with smaller replacement trees. With the replacement of the sidewalk on Main Street the Village of Cooperstown plans to incorporate Green Infrastructure stormwater runoff mitigation methods into the project.

The plan is intended to fulfill the requirements of New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation Green Innovation Grant Program (GIGP) with Green Infrastructure Practices. The project will enable the Village of Cooperstown to improve overall water quality of Otsego Lake and the Susquehanna River. Otsego Lake is the headwaters of the Susquehanna River basin and currently serves as a public water supply for the Village of Cooperstown as well as numerous private properties and community systems in the towns of Otsego, Springfield and Middlefield. Otsego Lake is a very important natural resource to the communities surrounding the Lake and therefore it is imperative.

The project is located on Main Street (between River Street and Pine Boulevard) in the Village of Cooperstown, New York.
