Conditioned Negative Declaration

New York City (Brooklyn) County - The New York City School Construction Authority, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New 500-Seat Primary/Intermediate School Facility for Region No. 6/Community School District No. 18 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. There will be a 30 day public comment period commencing with the date of this notice. The action involves the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) proposing the site selection, acquisition, acceptance of construction funding, and construction of a new approximately 500-seat primary/intermediate school facility in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn. Site acquisition, design, and construction of this proposed facility would be conducted pursuant to the DOE’s Capital Plan for Fiscal Years 2005-2009.

The proposed site is an approximately 19,000 square foot rectangular assemblage located on the east side of East 107th Street between Flatlands Avenue and Avenue J in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn (Block 8215, Lots 12 & 21). The site consists of two privately owned lots: Lot 12 is approximately 17,000 square feet in area, and contains a vacant two-story building most recently occupied by a yeshiva, while Lot 21 is approximately 2,000 square feet in area, is open and paved, and was most recently used by occupants of the adjoining yeshiva for parking/play area. The SCA would acquire both lots and demolish the existing building.

The purpose of the proposed new school facility is to provide additional permanent student capacity within DOE’s Region No. 6/Community School District No. 18. According to DOE’s Capital Plan for Fiscal Years 2005-2009, which was developed based on DOE’s demographic projections, additional school capacity at the primary and intermediate levels is needed in Community School District No. 18 to meet the expected growth in student enrollments. The proposed facility would also support DOE’s policy of reduced class sizes and removal of temporary classroom facilities.

The proposed new primary school building would contain a total of up to approximately 62,000 gross square feet consisting of pre-kindergarten through eighth grade classrooms, special educational facilities, gymnasium, auditorium, library, administrative space, cafeteria, and kitchen. The remainder of the school site would be improved with open space/schoolyard. Site acquisition and design activities would begin in Spring 2005, with student occupancy of the new facility anticipated in September 2008.

The project is located at 965 East 107th Street, Canarsie, Brooklyn, New York, Tax Block 8215, Tax Lots 12 & 21.

The building proposed to be located on Lots 6 and 12 would consist of one seven-story residential building with 90 dwelling units and 85 enclosed accessary parking spaces located between the cellar and first floors. Lots 6 and 12 are currently occupied by a paved parking lot and Lots 15, 20 and 25 are vacant. It is expected that construction of the proposed development will be completed in 2006.

New York City (Brooklyn) County - The City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Dekalb Avenue and Walworth Street Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. There will be a 30 day public comment period commencing with the date of this notice. The action involves the applicants, DeKalb Properties LLC, and Middleland, Inc., requesting an amendment to the Zoning Map to change an area located on the northwest corner of Dekalb Avenue and Walworth Street (Block 1763, Lots 1, 2, and 62) from an M1-5 zoning district to an R6 district, in the Bedford Stuyvesant Urban Renewal Area of Brooklyn Community District 3. In addition, the applicant is seeking to remove a restrictive declaration (D-15) from the property, which limits the use of the site to accessory parking for a manufacturing facility that was formerly located across the street. The restrictive declaration was placed on the property in 1975, when, together with the block to the east, it was rezoned from R6 to M1-5 to facilitate the construction of the manufacturing facility across the street from the subject site. The manufacturing facility is now closed.

The proposed actions would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to develop the project site, which is currently vacant, with three separate residential buildings containing approximately 36 dwelling units. It is expected that the proposed project would be completed by 2006.
