Positive Declaration And Public Scoping

New York City (Bronx) County - The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Yankee Stadium Redevelopment Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until August 17, 2005. A public scoping session will be held on July 18, 2005, at 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, 1040 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY. The action involves the development of a new Yankee Stadium by the New York Yankees on portions of Macombís Dam and John Mullaly Parks adjacent to the existing stadium site, located at East 161st Street and River Avenue in The Bronx (see Figure 1). The new stadium would have a capacity for up to 54,000 spectators and would replace the existing approximately 55,500-seat existing Yankee Stadium. The proposed project would displace approximately 1,270 parking spaces and would develop four new parking garages containing approximately 5,235 spaces, for a total of 11,044 spaces serving the new stadium. Street-level non-destination retail could be developed in one of the parking garages for a total of approximately 19,000 gross square feet. The project would require the alienation of certain areas of mapped parkland to allow for its disposition by DPR, through leases, for operation of the new Yankee Stadium and several new parking garages. Following that disposition, however, these areas would remain mapped parkland. In addition, new areas of mapped parkland would be created to provide additional new open space and to accommodate park facilities displaced by the new stadium and garages. The project is located in the Bronx and is generally bounded by East 164th Street, East 151st Street, East 157th Street, River Avenue, and the Harlem River. The proposed project is located in Bronx Community District 4.
