Westchester County - The State Education Department and Chappaqua Central School District (CCSD), as lead agency has accepted a draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed New Middle School Construction, and renovations and additions at Horace Greeley High School and Roaring Brook Elementary School, in the CCSD. A public hearing on the draft EIS will be held on February 17, 2000 at 7:30 PM at the Bell Middle School, 50 Senter Street, Chappaqua. Written comments on the draft EIS will be accepted until March 3, 2000. The action involves the New middle school construction, approximately 160,000 square feet in size, to accommodate up to 750 students, located at either the CCSD-owned "Seven Bridges site," located off Route 133, immediately west of Seven Bridges Road, or on the "Whippoorwill site" on the Horace Greeley High School property, adjacent to Route 117. The Greeley High School addition would involve additions and renovations to the present high school facility and contain no more than 16 full size classrooms and related space. The proposed renovation also creates an interior pathway that connects many of the main academic buildings. The new additions between buildings would provide science and math rooms, general classrooms, common space, meeting rooms. The Roaring Brook Elementary School addition would create up to four new full size classrooms along with two support rooms and two lavatory facilities, to replace four 30-year old "temporary" portable classrooms, and provide some flexibility with future space. Should the new middle school be constructed at the Whippoorwill site, two multi-purpose athletic fields would be displaced from the Horace Greeley High School property. Therefore this option also entails the construction of two replacement athletic fields at the Westorchard Elementary School, also in the Chappaqua Central School District.

Project Location: A new middle school is proposed for one of the following two locations:

The Whippoorwill site is located on the larger Horace Greeley High School property, in Chappaqua, Town of New Castle, Westchester County, New York. The location under consideration for new middle school construction is on the southeastern portion of the high school property, adjacent to a state highway, Route 117.

The Seven Bridges site is located at the north end of the Town of New Castle, situated between Hog Hill Road to the west, Seven Bridges Road to the east, and is bordered by the Town of Yorktown town line to the north, and Millwood Road (Route 133) to the south.

New additions are proposed at the following schools:

Horace Greeley High School 70 Roaring Brook Road, in Chappaqua, the Town of New Castle, Westchester County, New York.

The Roaring Brook Elementary School located on Quaker Road, opposite the intersection with Roaring Brook Road, in the central portion of the Town of North Castle.

If the Whippoorwill site is selected for the location of the middle school, replacement athletic fields are proposed to be constructed at the Westorchard Elementary School, 25 Granite Road, in the Millwood section of New Castle.
