The development of the Stewardship Plan affects 607.0 acres of the campus. The action represents the division of those lands into three major categories and implementation of each one. The Stewardship Plan accounts for the SUNY Campus of 279 acres, Buffer acreage of 78 acres and the Open Space (i.e., lands for preservation) of 250 acres. The EAF has been prepared evaluating the potential impacts from the development and implementation of the Stewardship Plan.
