ENB - Region 7 Notices 7/8/2015

Negative Declaration

Broome County - The City of Binghamton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Binghamton-Johnson City Joint Sewage Treatment Plant Restoration and Rehabilitation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Much of the existing Binghamton Johnson City Joint Sewage Treatment Plant (BJCJSTP) has been inoperable or performing poorly due to Tropical Storm Lee flood damage, process system failures, structural failures, and general age/wear of process equipment. The goal of this project is to provide a functioning automated plant using a BIOSTYR® system that can be modified to fit the current plant configurations with minimal modifications. This project also includes providing functioning headworks and primary clarification processes upstream of the BIOSTYR® system, and solid handling processes down-stream of the BIOSTYR® system. All works will be completed at the current site of the BJCJSTP, in areas which have been previously developed.

The project is located at 4480 Old Vestal Road in the Town of Vestal, New York.

Tompkins County - The Ithaca Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Tompkins Financial Headquarters will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to construct a 7 story, 110,000 square foot office building as a new corporate headquarters at 118 East Seneca Street, and to relocate the existing drive-through teller to the ground-floor parking area of 119 East Seneca Street. The new building will have a ground floor footprint of approximately 6,600 square feet (66 feet x 100 feet) and will include retail services, building core, and other amenities related to the building. There will be 20 to 25 parking spaces accommodated on site to the north of the ground floor footprint and under the building overhang. Each floor plate above the ground floor will be 16,300 square feet. The front of the building will be set back several feet from the street line to align with the Hilton Garden Inn. 119 East Seneca Street will include a new 985 square drive-through teller building. Existing parking and drive aisles will be modified to create a teller window drive-up lane, a vacuum-actuated drive-up teller station, and a through-lane for traffic. In addition to the drive lane associated with the teller stations, a new ATM will be added to the site. Both sites are in the CBD-100 Zoning District. The project is located at 118 and 119 East Seneca Street in the City of Ithaca, New York.
