Ulster County - The City of Kingston, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kingston Waterfront Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA)Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Kingston Waterfront BOA Plan (inclusive of the Step 2 Nomination Study and Step 3 Implementation Strategy) was prepared in accordance with the guidelines established by the New York State Department of State (NYS DOS) for the BOA grant program. The BOA includes the waterfront area between Dock Street and Abeel Street and the confluence of Rondout Creek and the Hudson River at Kingston Point in the City of Kingston, New York. The BOA Plan guides redevelopment of the approximately 190 acre BOA, including possible remediation of several strategic brownfield sites adjacent to parkland, commercial and residential areas, and the Hudson River and Rondout Creek. The BOA Plan recommends possible development scenarios for vacant and underutilized brownfields, the implementation of which would likely result in new commercial, retail, entertainment, residential and/or public open space land uses.
