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 New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website:

Negative Declaration

Orange County - The Town of Goshen Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Davis Solar, LLC will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a 2 MW-ac solar photovoltaic (PV) array on roughly 15 acres of land located at 131 Owens Road in the town of Goshen, New York. The project will consist of ground-mounted fixed-tilt solar PV panels mounted on posts driven approximately 6 to 10 feet into the ground and mounted on racks. The solar farm will operate as a Community Distributed Generation (CDG) facility as prescribed by the New York State Public Service Commission under electric tariffs of the Orange and Rockland utility.

Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Dutchess County - The Town of Red Hook Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bard College Campus Master Plan may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held at a date to be determined.

The action involves an application by Bard College for a Special Permit for a Campus Master Plan for the 1,000 acre Bard College Campus. The Campus Master Plan describes proposed future projects within a 10 year planning horizon. The Plan includes five (5) near-term projects: a 22,660 square foot addition to Kline Commons; construction of a new 3 story 33,810 square foot Digital Science building; installation of a new artificial turf soccer/lacrosse field and a new grass practice field; three microhydropower facilities; and a 906 square foot Media Lab. The Plan also includes eight (8) mid-term projects: construction of a new 75,000 square foot, 200 bed dormitory and replacement of an existing 212 beds with new 46,442 square foot replacement building; construction of a 25,000 square foot live arts building; relocation of an existing student performance space and construction of a 3,000 square foot addition; construction of a 28,500 square foot expansion to the library; construction of a 12,000 square foot expansion to the Center for Curatorial Studies; construction of a 3-story 38,000 square foot MFA studio building; construction of a 97,000 square foot expansion to an existing gymnasium with a new 400 meter track, new tennis courts, two new grass practice fields, a throwing area, and a softball field; various improvements to infrastructure. Long-term ideas are included in the plan but these are not sufficiently defined at this time to be included in the special permit application and are therefore not included in this SEQR review. The proposed action does not involve any land disturbance or development. Any subsequent proposed land disturbance or development would require a separate site-specific review under SEQR.

The project is located Annandale Road in the Town of Red Hook, New York.
