ENB - Region 3 Notices 1/28/2015

Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The Town of Poughkeepsie Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Marist College North Campus Housing and Marist College St. Ann's Parking Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the two separate applications for waterfront consistency review and site plan approval, which are related because they are adjacent sites owned by Marist College and are functionally related to each other. To ensure that SEQR review addresses all related parts of both actions (North Campus and St. Ann's), a combined SEQR review was conducted considering coordinated separate site plan applications and separate Coastal Assessment Forms and their cumulative effects. The separate projects are summarized as follows:

Marist College-North Campus Housing is a two (2) phase 789 bed student housing project, including demolition of existing student housing and administrative/academic structures; construction of four buildings with 9,400 square feet of residential, administrative and classroom facilities. The site is located in the Institutional (IN) and Waterfront District 1 (WD-1) zoning districts. The 12.89 + acre site is on one lot with improvements on an adjacent lot (St. Ann's).

Marist College-St. Ann's Parking is an expanded parking lot adjacent to the Marist-North Campus student housing project, including relocation of a driveway connecting the site with the North Campus Housing. The site is also located in the Institutional (IN) and Waterfront District 1 (WD-1) zoning districts. The 26.5 + acre site is on four lots.

The project is located at 3399 and 3499 North Road in the Town of Poughkeepsie, New York.
