What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website:

Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The Uniondale School District, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Uniondale Union Free District Bond Referendum will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a 2017 Bond Referendum to secure funding for the enhancement, modernization and expansion of school facilities and capacities throughout the district. The funds from the bond would support a significant amount of improvements, including the construction of a total of approximately 242,000 square feet of building additions to contain new classrooms, auxiliary gymnasiums, locker rooms, cafeterias, kitchens, libraries and all support spaces; building improvements including boiler replacements, electrical upgrades, roofing replacements, flooring replacements, window replacements, new corridor lockers, and new plumbing fixtures; the installation of new synthetic turf athletic fields at three school sites; and the potential new or rerouted buses to accommodate service for the new Pre-K classrooms and for the new student populations.

The proposed project would have important benefits to the students served by the School District including among others the ability to provide a Pre-Kindergarten program to serve all the 4-year-olds in the district, the elimination of use of outdated and basement classrooms, and the ability to provide bi-lingual education to all students.

The project is located at nine schools throughout the Uniondale Union Free School District in Uniondale, New York.
