Negative Declaration

New York County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Dept of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 26th Ward Wastewater Treatment Plant - Carbon Addition Facilities will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the NYC DEP to construct a supplemental carbon addition facility at the 26th Ward Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to enhance nitrogen removal within the existing Biological Nitrogen Removal (BNR) Building. Glycerol would be added as an additional carbon source to the anoxic zones of the aeration tanks to enhance the BNR process. The facility would include above ground glycerol storage tanks, secondary containment and loading/unloading pads.

The 26th Ward WWTP is a conventional secondary treatment plant comprising approximately 57.3 acres. All activities associated with the proposed project would take place within the existing Plant boundaries and construction activities are anticipated to last approximately 18 months.

The project is located at the intersection of Flatlands Avenue and Van Siclen Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Police Department, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed World Trade Center Campus Security Plan. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on April 23, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. at the New York City Department of City Planning in Spector Hall (first floor), 22 Reade Street, New York, NY. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until May 8, 2013. The Draft EIS is available from the New York City Mayor's Office of Environmental Coordination, 100 Gold Street, 2nd Floor, NY NY 10038 and on line at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/crime_prevention/counterterrorism.shtml.

The action involves a Campus Security Plan which will create a comprehensive vehicle security perimeter for the World Trade Center (WTC) Campus to protect against vehicle-borne explosive devices while ensuring an open environment that is hospitable to remembrance, culture, and commerce. The Campus Security Plan bars unscreened vehicles from entering the WTC Campus and certain areas at the perimeter of the Site and creates increased stand-off distances to reduce the risk of catastrophic damage to persons and property. A vehicle seeking to enter restricted areas would be subject to credentialing to determine whether entry is authorized and screening to ensure the vehicle does not contain dangerous material. The creation of a Trusted Access Program (TAP), in which office tenants with parking privileges on site, residents and owners of businesses located in non-WTC buildings within the secure zone (Liberty Street between Greenwich Street and Trinity Place), for-hire vehicle operators, and delivery vehicle operators could enroll, is envisioned to expedite vehicle entry for those vehicles with destinations within the WTC Campus.

The Project Area includes all streets, sidewalks and buildings that would be directly affected by the installation of the site's security infrastructure. This area is generally bounded by Barclay, West, Albany and Church Streets. Four vehicular entry points are planned under the proposed Campus Security Plan at: Washington Street and Barclay Street; West Broadway and Barclay Street; Trinity Place/Church Street and Liberty Street; and Liberty Street and West Street/Route 9A. Exits from the secure zone are proposed at the following five locations: Church Street at Vesey Street; Vesey Street at West Street/Route 9A; Fulton Street at West Street/Route 9A; Liberty Street at West Street/Route 9A; and Greenwich Street at Cedar Street. The secure perimeter would consist of various types of vehicle interdiction devices, which would include static barriers (such as bollards) and operable barriers to allow vehicle access, all under new York City Police Department (NYC PD) control. The Proposed Action also includes the reconfiguration of Church Street from Cedar Street north to Vesey Street to create a northbound lane for screened vehicles within the security zone as well as an exit area north of Vesey Street. This secure lane would be created by constructing a four-foot-wide raised median on Church Street. An approximately 11 foot wide inner secure lane would provide additional stand-off distance between the planned WTC buildings and the general traffic flow on Church Street. Three lanes of northbound Church Street traffic, having an approximate total width of 33 feet, would remain outside the secure zone.

The project is located on the streets surrounding the World Trade Center Site in Lower Manhattan, New York

Queens County (Queens) - The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (NYC DPR), as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed United State Tennis Association (USTA) Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Strategic Vision Project. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on April 24, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at the the City Planning Commission, Spector Hall, 22 Reade Street, New York, New York 10007. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until May 6, 2013. The Notice of Completion and the Draft EIS for this project were issued by NYC DPR on January 3, 2013 and are available for public inspection at the following locations: NYC DPR at The Arsenal in Central Park and the Al Oerter Recreation Center in Queens; USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, Indoor Tennis Center; Queens Public Library at the branches in Corona, Jackson Heights, Langston Hughes, Lefrak City, Forest Hills, Flushing, Kew Gardens Hills and Richmond Hill; and can be obtained on-line at: http://nyc.gov/parks/NTC-Project or by contacting the contact person listed at the end of this notice.

The action involves the proposed improvements and an expansion to the facilities at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (NTC), located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York. The 42 acre NTC is one of the world's largest public recreational tennis facilities. For 11 months of the year, its facilities are open to the public for indoor and outdoor tennis. The NTC is also host to the US Open, one of the sport's four Grand Slam championship tennis tournaments. The proposed project would improve the NTC site plan, circulation, visitor amenities, and landscaping, and would include construction of two new stadiums to replace the existing Louis Armstrong Stadium in the same location, and Grandstand Stadium in a new location at the southwest corner of the NTC site, as well as possible improvements to Arthur Ashe Stadium. The proposed project would also include modifications to tournament courts and ancillary buildings, the construction of two new parking garages, the relocation of a connector road, and pedestrian enhancements. To accommodate the proposed project, 0.94 acres of land would be added to the NTC site, including 0.68 acres of park land that would be alienated, and 0.26 acres of previously alienated park land that is outside the current lease. Just to the south of the NTC, the relocated connector road and new sidewalks would be built on an approximately 0.3 acre area. Improvements to park features in Flushing Meadows Corona Park would also be provided. The proposed project would also enable the USTA to accommodate an extra 10,000 daily spectators during the US Open.
