Positive Declaration And Public Scoping

Orange County - The Metro-North Commuter Railroad Company, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Additional Parking to Serve Port Jervis Rail Passengers in the Harriman-Salisbury Mills Corridor may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until January 6, 2003. A public scoping session will be held on December 12, 2002 at 7:00 p.m. at the Central Valley Elementary School, 45 Route 32, Central Valley, New York. The action involves Metro-North Commuter Railroad Company intending to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) pursuant to the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) to evaluate the potential benefits and impacts resulting from the provision of additional railroad customer parking capacity to access Port Jervis Line services in Orange County with the objective of meeting the significant ridership increase projected to result from local growth and the opening of the NJ TRANSIT Secaucus Transfer Station. The study will examine several alternatives to meeting increasing demand for parking in the Harriman-Salisbury Mills corridor. These alternatives will include several expansion alternatives at the existing Harriman Station, as well as the construction of a new station and parking facility at an alternative location. Another alternative involves the construction of a new railroad station and use of 1,800 existing parking spaces of a portion of an existing parking facility located at the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets located in the Town of Woodbury, Orange County, New York. It is anticipated that the proposed new station would be accessed via a covered pedestrian bridge spanning approximately 230 feet. The project is located at the Harriman - Salisbury Mills Rail Corridor, Orange County, New York.
