Brief Description of Action: OFT proposes to develop the SWN for voice and data radio communications services to enable public safety and public service entities operating within the State of New York to better respond to and protect our citizens. The SWN will provide essential connectivity to coordinate the delivery of governmental services to the citizens of New York, and to enable immediate coordination of public safety resources in emergency situations to ensure the public’s safety and welfare. The proposed SWN project is fundamentally an infrastructure, a collection of radio sites throughout the State interconnected by a network, monitored and controlled by a pair of redundant operations centers.

The proposed action is the deployment of the SWN, which includes the Primary Regional Build Out, Final Engineering Design, Statewide implementation involving the Construction and Operation of the Network and Ongoing Maintenance of the SWN.

Location of Action: A generic environmental impact statement has been completed by OFT because the exact locations of the SWN antenna facilities and operations centers (“Network Facilities”) have yet to be determined. OFT expects that the SWN project will involve the establishment of Network Facilities in locations across New York. The eventual locations for the Network Facilities will be selected to avoid, to the extent practicable, previously undeveloped sites. The use of existing State-owned infrastructure and properties will be a priority in determining the locations of the SWN antenna facilities and operations centers.

Written Comments: OFT will accept written comments on the DGEIS from October 1, 2004 through November 30, 2004. Written comments should be submitted to the New York State Office for Technology, Statewide Wireless Network Project Office, State Capitol, ESP, Albany, New York 12220-0062, Attn: SEQRA Comments. In addition, written comments may be submitted to OFT online at www.oft.state.ny.us/swn.

New York Environmental Leaders - Input from Interested Stakeholders Requested

The Department is seeking input on the development of a new environmental leadership program, which will be called New York Environmental Leaders. New York Environmental Leaders will be a voluntary program focused on encouraging Environmental Management Systems, beyond compliance performance, pollution prevention, and sustainable business practices. The Department will encourage participation by providing recognition and incentives to those organizations that are able to demonstrate that they meet the requirements for entering New York Environmental Leaders. The framework for New York Environmental Leaders is established in a recently issued Commissioner’s Policy on Environmental Management Systems (CP-34). However, many details still need to be established. In order to gather input on the details of this program, the Department is asking interested stakeholders to complete a survey. The survey can be found at: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ppu/nyel/shsurvey.pdf .Please take the time to complete the survey and return it, as directed, by October 1, 2004.

Anyone interested in receiving more information on New York Environmental Leaders should visit www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ppu/nyel/index.html or contact: John Vana, NYSDEC, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-1750; Telephone: (518)402-9469; e-mail: jmvana@gw.dec.state.ny.us
