Notice Of Acceptance of Final EIS

New York City (Staten Island) County - The New York City Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed New Stapleton Waterfront Development Plan. The FEIS is also available at the websites of the New York City Office of Environmental Coordination (http://www.nyc.gov/html/oec/html/home/home.shtml) and New York City Economic Development Corporation (http://www.nycedc.com/Library/Studies/StapletonFEIS.html). Requests for copies of the FEIS and public comments regarding the FEIS should be forwarded to the contact office, listed below, acting on behalf of the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding. The action involves the New Stapleton Waterfront Development Plan which is a comprehensive effort to redevelop the former 35-acre U.S. Navy Homeport in the Stapleton section of Staten Island, and to encourage new development on adjacent blocks. The Plan was the product of a collaborative planning process led by the Mayor's Homeport Task Force, comprised of City and elected officials and community and business representatives. The Plan will assist in the revitalization of the Stapleton community and create a new publicly-accessible waterfront destination for the borough. The project will allow for private mixed-use development on development parcels within the Homeport site and is expected to include residential, restaurant/banquet facility, sports complex, local retail, farmers market, and commercial uses. The project also includes the creation of more than 12 new acres of waterfront esplanade and public open space, street reconstruction and other infrastructure improvements. In addition, the project will encourage complementary private mixed-use development in the area west of Front Street and east of the Staten Island Railway tracks through the establishment of a special zoning district. Public land-use actions required to implement the project include zoning map and text amendments, the establishment of the Special Stapleton Waterfront District, City map amendments, and the disposition of City-owned property. The project area is bound by Hannah Street to the north, the Staten Island Railway tracks to the west, the Front/Bay/Edgewater Street intersection to the south and the U.S. Pierhead line to the east.
