Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft EIS And Public Hearing

New York City (Bronx) County - The New York City School Construction Authority, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmntal Impact Statement on the proposed Mott Haven School Campus. A public hearing will be held on Wednesday, September 6, 2006, beginning at 4:00 p.m. at P.S. 156, located at 750 Concourse Village West, Bronx. Comments on the DEIS are requested and will be accepted by the SCA until the close of business on September 18, 2006. The DEIS is also available at the SCA's website (www.nycsca.org). The action involves On behalf of the New York City Department of Education (DOE), the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) proposes to construct a new school campus in the Concourse Village section of the Bronx. The proposed school complex would accommodate four school organizations consisting of one 544-seat charter school serving grades 5 through 8, one 573-seat intermediate/high school serving grades 6 through 12, and two 549-seat high schools serving grades 9 through 12. The proposed complex would also include space for use by District 75 students.

The proposed site (Block 2443, portion of Lot 78) is a former rail yard whose grade is located approximately 15 to 30 feet below the street level of Concourse Village West, which is the only public street that adjoins the site. The property is vacant, owned by the City of New York, and under DOE's control.

According to current project plans, the proposed complex would contain a total of approximately 275,000 square feet. It would consist of a base (or podium) extending from the level of the former rail yard to the street level of Concourse Village West. From that podium individual buildings accommodating each of the four planned school organizations would rise: each building would have its own lobby, general instruction classrooms, administrative offices, and cafeteria. Spaces that would be shared by the four organizations, such as an auditorium, gymnasia, libraries, and some District 75 facilities, would be located within the podium, and would be accessible from each building.

The complex would be constructed within an approximately 147,000 square foot footprint along the western portion of the site (i.e., along Concourse Village West). The eastern portion of the site would be developed with playing fields and open space, which would remain at the existing rail yard level. All entrances to the proposed complex, including student and visitor entrances, would be located off Concourse Village West. Outdoor plazas would also be developed as part of the project to permit public access outside of school hours to the playing fields.

The proposed facility would be located within the boundaries of DOE Region No. 9/Community School District No. 7, and is serve students from the surrounding community as well as from throughout the Borough of the Bronx. Construction of the proposed project would be undertaken pursuant to the DOE's Five-Year Capital Plan for Fiscal Years 2005 through 2009.

The SCA would begin construction activities in late 2006. Student occupancy of the charter school space is scheduled to begin in September 2009, with occupancy of the remainder of the campus scheduled to begin in September 2010.

The project is vacant land bounded by Concourse Village West, P.S. 156 and I.S. 151, the MTA Metro-North Railroad right-of-way and Concourse Village East, and the right-of-way for East 153rd Street, Bronx, New York, Tax Block 2443, Tax Lot 78.
