Westchester County - The NYC Department of Environmental Protection, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Eastview Police Precinct (CEQR#04DEP208U) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Public Comment Period is September 3, 2004 to September 18, 2004. In an effort to enhance the security of the water supply system, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) has been constructing police precincts in areas surrounding the watershed to improve the monitoring of existing watershed facilities, limiting access to vulnerable sites, increasing surveillance of key areas and strengthening its police force to ensure the overall security of the watershed land area and the water supply system.

The proposed action is to construct a police precinct on approximately 4.2 acres of the 87-acre property near the intersection of Walker Road (formerly Beeline Road) and Grasslands Road / Route 100C and would replace the existing East of Hudson facility located in Yorktown Heights. The existing facility consists of a converted single-family house and temporary trailers. The facility is undersized and lacks the appropriate electrical and communication infrastructure to support current security operations.

The proposed two-story facility would be approximately 20,500 square feet including a basement and garage. The building dimensions would be approximately 60 feet wide, 113 feet long, and 38 feet high. Access would be from Walker Road. There would be parking available on three sides of the building for a total capacity of 86 spaces. The proposed building would consist of a poured concrete foundation, brick facade, curved sheet metal roof, HVAC, plumbing, electrical wiring and include connections to existing off-site water, sewer and telephone services. A fuel station would be located on-site to serve NYCDEP police vehicles. Upon project completion, the facility would be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Mount Pleasant Planning Board adopted by resolution this negative declaration on September 2nd, 2004. This draft Negative Declaration will become final at the end of the 15-day public comment period if no substantive comments are received.

The proposed police precinct would be located on 105 Grasslands Avenue (Route 100C), near the intersection of Walker Road (formerly Beeline Road), in the Town of Mount Pleasant, Westchester County, on NYCDEP property known as the Eastview Site (Section 116.16, Block 1, Lot 2 and Section 116.20, Block 1, Lot 1).
