Nassau County - The Town of Oyster Bay Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bristal at Jericho Assisted Living will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application to the Town Board for a Change of Zone from R1 1A One Family Residence to General Business (GB), Special Use Permit and Site Plan Approval to allow the construction of an approximately 282,748 square foot, 280 unit (314 bed) assisted living residence on a 18.23 ± acre parcel.

A partial basement will contain dining rooms and kitchens, maintenance shop, mechanical and electrical equipment, storage, staff lounge and lockers, office space, housekeeping, fitness area and similar ancillary uses. Domestic water supply will be from the Jericho Water District; and sanitary waste disposal will be via the Nassau County sewer system, which requires approval of an out-of-district connection. The proposed action includes dedication to the Town of Oyster Bay of an approximately 8.5 acre parcel, which comprises the northerly portion of the subject property and is contiguous to existing publicly-owned, natural open space to the north and west. The project is located at 300 and 310 Jericho Turnpike in Jericho, Town of Oyster Bay, New York.

Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The New York State Governor's Office of Storm Recovery, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Suffolk County Road 12 Reconstruction and Resiliency Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of existing concrete drainage pipe with new reinforced concrete drainage pipe. The project also includes the reconstruction of County Road 12. This entails excavation to enable replacement and repair of certain section of the existing drainage system, full depth pavement patching, resurfacing, curb and sidewalk replacement, pavement marking and the necessary traffic signal modifications. There will be 6,000 linear foot of piping impacted. This includes replacement of old piping and installation of new piping. Approximately 130 drainage structures - both existing and new - would be either replaced or added to the project. The project will be designed for completion within existing Suffolk County road rights-of-way and will comply with the Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG). The proposed roadway reconstruction will include adequate sized drainage system replacement and repair, including the installation of new storm water treatment units, along with full depth pavement patching, and asphalt resurfacing, all designed to increase resiliency and minimize damage to the infrastructure. A new culvert designed to handle a 100 year flood event will be installed under the section of road connecting the pond in Peterkin Park with Amityville Creek to replace an existing failing culvert. A new 3 foot by 6 foot culvert would replace the existing 2.5 foot by 4.5 foot culvert. These improvements will be designed to mitigate and prevent future flooding and ensure a safe east-west travel route for evacuations away from the impact zone. The project is located along County Road 12 for approximately 1.8 miles from County Route 1 in Amityville to Garfield Road in Copiague in the Town of Babylon, New York.
