Negative Declaration

Cortland County - The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed State University of New York at Cortland New Residence Hall Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the State University of New York (hereinafter, SUNY) proposing to undertake the construction of the New Residence Hall Project. The proposed action consists of DASNY's authorization of the expenditure of approximately $9,000,000 of tax-exempt bond proceeds from DASNY's State University Dormitory Facilities Program. The proceeds of DASNY's tax-exempt bond issuance will be used to finance, design, and construct the proposed project, which involves a new residence hall on the SUNY Cortland campus in the City of Cortland, Cortland County, New York.

More specifically, the proposed project involves the construction of an approximately 56,500-gross-square-foot (gsf), 4-story dormitory building on the SUNY Cortland campus. The development site is located just south of Neubig Hall and bounded by Neubig Road to the north and west and Service Road to the east. The development site is currently occupied by the one-story annex building that connects two existing dormitories, Bishop and Shea Halls. The approximately 6,000-gsf annex building would be demolished and replaced by the proposed new residence hall, which will house 195 to 200 students. The New Residence Hall Project would increase on-campus student housing from approximately 2,200 to approximately 2,400 beds.

The proposed project also includes approximately 3,000 gsf of interior renovations to Bishop and Shea Halls to provide limited connections to the new building, and landscaping improvements, including the partial removal of two masonry screen walls at Neubig Hall (approximately 20 feet long and 12 feet high) to improve the courtyard area between Neubig Hall and the New Residence Hall.

The project is located at the State University of New York at Cortland.
