Consolidated SPDES Renewals
Orange County - The Pine Bush Central School District Board of Education, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Pine Bush Central School District Capital Project - Modified High School Addition will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the Pine Bush Central School District proposing construction of an addition to the high school campus. The proposed 12 classroom addition to the existing High School north east wing (also know as the “Freshman Wing”) is being undertaken as a modification of and replacement for the previously planned District Administration / Annex School project which was examined by the Board of Education in February 2002 as part of a District wide capital project. Upon receipt of detailed construction cost bids it was determined that a more cost efficient option was needed to construct the required additional education space at the high school campus. As such, classroom additions are now proposed to be constructed on the north east end of the high school campus and physically connected to the existing high school building in place of the previously proposed District Administration/ Annex School project. The school building campus is located in the Town of Crawford and Hamlet of Pine Bush.
