ENB - Region 8 Notices 8/21/2013

Negative Declaration

Monroe County - The Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority (RGRTA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 2013 Campus Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves improvements to operations on RGRTA's campus located at 1372 East Main Street in the City of Rochester, New York.

Specifically, the Project includes:

  1. Renovations to the Operations Building to upgrade maintenance areas;
  2. Expansion to the Operations Building to provide indoor bus parking spaces;
  3. Construction of a new Maintenance Warehouse Building for relocation of maintenance functions and storage from the Operations Building;
  4. New bus parking spaces, including indoor parking spaces in the Operations Building, outdoor parking spaces, and designated outdoor bus staging spaces for buses waiting for maintenance;
  5. Construction of a new Service Building with greater capacity for operations and updated facilities (as compared to the existing Service Building);
  6. New employee parking area to replace the parking displaced by the new Maintenance Warehouse Building and Service Building, to accommodate the full parking demand of RGRTA employees;
  7. Other site improvements, including replacement of petroleum bulk storage and fueling systems and site lighting systems, pavement, sidewalk, fencing, and gates; infrastructure improvements (i.e., replacement of portions of storm, sanitary, water, electrical, and gas utilities), creation of a new perimeter wall and perimeter landscaping, and other improvements to the campus.

The action will require RGRTA to acquire 21 private properties on Hayward Avenue and Chamberlain Street and will require the City of Rochester to de-map a portion of Hayward Avenue.

Monroe County - The Village of Clyde, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Clyde - NYS Route 31 Watermain Replacement in Town of Galen will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of 1,400 linear feet of watermain which functions as the sole water transmission line into the Village of Clyde distribution system and the primary feed to the Village storage tanks. The existing un-lined cast iron pipe, installed in 1896, will be replaced with new 12-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyethylene (PE) watermain. The replacement will occur along NYS Route 31, west of the Village boundary, in the Town of Galen for a distance of approximately 1,400 lineal feet. Activities also include installation of fire hydrants, valves, connections with existing watermains and residential services, excavation and bedding materials, and surface restoration. The replacement of the watermain will significantly improve water quality issues and increase the reliability of service and fire protection for the entire Village of Clyde. The project is located along portions of NYS Route 31 in the Town of Galen, New York.
