Positive Declaration

Suffolk County - The Board of Education of the Miller Place Union Free School District, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Additions and Alterations at the Existing Miller Place High School may have a significant adverse environmental impact and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a development plan consisting of the construction of a new high school building on the existing high school site, the expansion of the existing high school building and the conversion of same to a middle school, and the acquisition and development of athletic fields on a 13-acre wooded parcel on New York State Route 25. The formerly proposed projects were evaluated in separate Draft Environmental Impact Statements (DEISs) prepared by Thomas Associates. The DEISs were submitted to the New York State Education Department (SED) which acted as lead agency at that time. In May 2000, SED issued a Negative Declaration for both the new construction, the expansion and conversion of the existing high school building, and the acquisition and development of the 13-acre wooded parcel.

The Board has since modified the development plan to include the following: 85,000 square feet in additions for general and science classrooms, library and media center, home and career rooms, storage rooms, and new 800-seat auditorium; development of 8 acres for athletic fields; expansion of existing parking area for 100 additional parking spaces for a total of 310 parking spaces; reconfiguration of classrooms to accommodate District administrative offices; renovation of classrooms and interior spaces; expansion of existing on-site sanitary system; and the installation of drywells to accommodate additional stormwater. Upon implementation of the proposed project, the existing 125,000 square foot school would be increased to 210,000 square feet (represents a 68.0 percent expansion). The project is located at 15 Memorial Place, Hamlet of Miller Place, Town of Brookhaven.
