Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Erie County - The New York State University Construction Fund, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed University of Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on June 25, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. at the University at Buffalo Downtown Gateway Building, 77 Goodell Street, Buffalo, NY 14203. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until July 8, 2013. The Draft EIS is available from the University at Buffalo, Abbott Hall, The Health Sciences Library, UB South Campus, 3435 Main Street, Buffalo, NY and the Central Library, 1 Lafayette Square, Buffalo, NY and on line at: http://www.sucf.suny.edu/project/environ.cfm.

The action involves a proposal by the New York State University Construction Fund (SUCF) and the University at Buffalo (UB) to construct a building to serve as the primary location for the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (SMBS) on an approximately 2.0 acre site at the southeast corner of Main and High Streets in Downtown Buffalo (the SMBS site), New York. Additionally, the University and other partner institutions propose to a construct an associated parking structure on an approximately 0.6 acre site adjacent to the existing Ellicott-Goodrich Garage (EGG) on the block bounded by Main, East North, Ellicott, and Goodrich Streets (the Parking Ramp site). The Project site (both the SMBS and Parking Ramp sites) is located within the new UB Downtown Campus in the City of Buffalo, New York. UB's downtown campus boundary roughly coincides with the boundaries of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC). The 120 acre BNMC is a consortium of nine health care related institutions, including UB, Kaleida Health, and Roswell Park Cancer Institute, located at the northeastern corner of downtown Buffalo. As presently envisioned, the SMBS facility will be up to eight stories tall (in addition, the building will include one subterranean level), up to approximately 610,000 gross square feet, and will be up to approximately 195 feet tall at the highest point. These maximum dimensions are used throughout the Draft EIS to provide for a conservative (i.e., "worst case") assessment of potential environmental impacts.
