Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Village of Southampton Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Ambulance Center Site Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a new Ambulance Center on the 3.99 acre Village owned property that is currently developed with the Village Police Station and Justice Court. The facility will share parking and access with the existing building and constructed on an area that is currently lawn. As a related action, an expanded parking area will be constructed to support a need for additional stalls for the Justice Court. The 2000 Village Plan recognized the potential for this property to be developed with community facilities. The structure will be 11,109 square foot in size (3,480 square foot lower level, 6,092 square foot main level, 1,536 square foot attic). Water to be provided by Suffolk County Water Authority (SCWA), and on-site sanitary system is proposed. The site is located within Suffolk County Groundwater Management Zone V which allows sanitary flow of 300 gpd per acre, or a total of 1,197 gpd for the site. The design flow for the police station is 724.10 gpd and the proposed ambulance facility has a total design flow of 721.43 gpd; therefore the Suffolk County Department of Health Services (SCDHS) will require density from another Village property to permit the construction on the site. The Planning Board has noted that site plan approval will be subject to SCDHS approval to ensure there are no significant impacts with respect to groundwater. A prior application included a Lot Line Modification to incorporate the area of the proposed facility into the park to the north as a means of satisfying SCDHS flow requirements, however, as there is concern regarding potential issues with siting the facility on the same lot as the park, the Lot Line Modification application was withdrawn and a transfer of density will be requested of the SCDHS. A traffic assessment was prepared which identified no significant increase in volume over existing traffic, however mitigation for existing volume was proposed, and the Village Board has approved improvements for implementation to alleviate delays on a nearby intersection. The project is located at 151 Windmill Lane in the Village of Southampton, New York.
