Application ID: 2-6403-00143/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: in Staten Island in Richmond County.
Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct a 900-seat public school, PS 58R, and associated paving, utilities, and landscaping, upon about 5-1/4 acres of a 13-1/3 acre site bounded by Westport Street, Essex Drive, Devon Loop and Marsh Avenue, southeast of the Staten Island Mall. The site is wooded, with Oaks, Sweetgum, and Red Maple dominating. About 1-3/4 acres of federally regulated freshwater wetlands would be eliminated by the development. The applicant has proposed to mitigate this loss by creating about 3-1/2 acres of new freshwater wetlands adjacent to DEC Freshwater Wetland No. AR- 40, in Willowbrook Park opposite the intersection of Richmond Avenue and Amsterdam Place. The mitigation project will consist of removal of fill and excavation and planting of a wetland addition which will include open water and marshland vegetated with native species. The freshwater wetland permit is required for the mitigation; the water quality certification for both the project construction and the mitigation. A draft permit is on file.

State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Determination: Project is an Unlisted Action. Mitigation measure required by the Lead Agency will modify the proposed action so that no significant adverse environmental impacts will result. A conditioned Negative Declaration is on file.
