Negative Declaration

Sullivan County - The Sullivan County Board of Supervisors, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sullivan County 911 Public Safety Radio System Upgrade will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the upgrade of emergency communication system(s) currently in use by public safety agencies (fire, EMS, law enforcement and public works) throughout Sullivan County. The current system, comprised of several independent systems, is nearly thirty (30) years old and lacks the ability for these agencies to interoperate. The proposed upgrade includes the potential installation of up to nine towers. Six (6) specific sites located in Elk Point, White Lake, Monticello, Wurtsboro, Tennanah Lake and Thunder Hill have been identified, and there is the potential for development of three additional towers in Callicoon, Narrowsburg and Knights Eddy. All proposed towers are 180 feet in height with the exceptions of the Monticello tower, which will be 300 feet in height, and the Wurtsburo tower, which will be 149 feet in height. The project is located in the Towns of Liberty, Fremont, Neversink, Bethel, Thompson, Mamakating, Delaware Tusten, and Lumberland, New York.
