Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Saratoga County - The New York State Franchise Oversight Board (NYS FOB), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New York Racing Association (NYRA) - Saratoga Race Course Redevelopment may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. July 30, 2013. Two public scoping session will be held on July 11, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Saratoga Springs City Center, 522 Broadway, Saratoga Springs NY 12866. The action involves the development of a comprehensive development plan by NYRA to preserve, restore and enhance the approximately 330 acre historic Saratoga Race Course. The goal of the proposed project is to ensure that the Saratoga Race Course retains its status as a world-class horse racing facility and key component in the local community character and regional economy. The proposed improvements seek to maintain and emphasize the historic character of the Race Course while responding to changes in the global racing landscape to ensure a sustainable future for racing at Saratoga.

The Race Course season runs for 6.5 weeks a year from July to September. In 2011, attendance exceeded 50,000 on two Saturdays and was estimated at between 30,000 and 50,000 on seven days, while the majority of the remaining race days were below 20,000 daily visitors. The project is not expected to: lengthen the racing season, substantially increase overall attendance or attendance patterns (particularly on peak Saturdays), nor substantially change existing non-seasonal use of the facility. The project will likely include construction of new buildings, parking areas, pedestrian facilities including walkways and pavilions, horse paths, planted areas, etc., renovation of existing buildings and facilities, including upgrade to utilities and removal of certain structures. The project will be implemented over an assumed ten year period based on need, schedule and funding. Improvements will be divided between the Frontside and the Backstretch portions of the project site.

The project is located at 267 Union Avenue in the City of Saratoga Springs, New York.
