Notice of Acceptance Of Draft EIS

Suffolk County - The Suffolk County Parks, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Restoration and Management of Maritime Grassland and Savanna in T. Roosevelt County Park and Montauk Point State Park. A Plan for 2003-2012. The action involves the restoration of native maritime grasses within a 290 acre management area of T. Roosevelt County Park in order to increase the abundance of this rare community, which once dominated the landscape. Currently there are 40 acres of grassland in the management area. We propose to increase the number of units being managed and restore an additional 90 acres by 2012. By restoring another 80 acres by 2022, we will have reached the ultimate goal of 2 10 acres within the management area. This would be accomplished by using prescribed bums in conjunction with mechanical clearing of woody vegetation and then sowing of native grassland species. The project is located on Montauk Highway, Montauk Town of East Hampton.
