Positive Declaration And Public Scoping

Orange County - The Planning Board of the Town of New Windsor, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Stewart Army Subpost (STAS) Redevelopment Plan may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a redevelopment of the former STAS, a 248+/- acre parcel in the Town of New Windsor. The STAS lands have been ground-leased by the Town of New Windsor for the purposes of economic development. The redevelopment plan contemplates redevelopment in multiple phases to establish a broad range of commercial, industrial, retail, institutional, residential and/or other uses pursuant to existing zoning requirements, including parking, utilities, street and other improvements and facilities identified as necessary or appropriate as redevelopment proceeds. (Part I of the Long Environmental Assessment Form was previously circulated and is available at the Planning Board office for review). A drafted scope has been posted on the bulletin board at the New Windsor Town Hall and is available for review and copying at 555 Union Avenue, New Windsor.

Any involved or interested agency or person may submit written comments thereon to the Town of New Windsor Planning Board Office through noon on January 2, 2003.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Rockland County - The Rockland County Sewer District No. 1, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed construction of a new advanced wastewater treatment plant located in Hillburn, New York and modifications to the sanitary sewer system. The action involves construction of a minimum of a 1.5 million-gallon-per-day (mgd) expandable to a 5.0 mgd advanced wastewater treatment (AWT) plant on a site along the abandoned entry ramp to State Route 17 in the Village of Hillburn. The new 1.5 mgd advanced wastewater treatment plant will serve the Villages of Sloatsburg, Hillburn and a portion of the unincorporated Town of Ramapo, and replace older wastewater treatment plants at the New York State Thruway Ramapo rest area, Mt. Fuji Wastewater Treatment Plant, and the Lincoln Street Wastewater Treatment Plant. The proposed AWT plant will be designed to serve the existing and future needs of Western Ramapo, based on current zoning limitations. The 5.0 mgd AWT plant would include potential service for the Town of Tuxedo, Palisades Interstate Park, and the Town of Ramapo that is currently served by Rockland County Sewer District No. 1.

Modifications to the proposed collection system addresses only alternate routes that were originally accepted in the 1997 Environmental Impact Statement for the extension of the boundaries of Rockland County Sewer District No. 1. The alternate sewer routes are proposed due to final detailed information received during design of the Western Ramapo Sanitary Sewer System. Several of these alternate sewer routes were implemented to avoid the use of pump stations and minimize environmental impacts related to land use. The project is located at the New York State Thruway property near the abandoned entry ramp to State Route 17 in the Village of Hillburn. The collection system modifications are proposed at various locations throughout Western Ramapo.
