Positive Declaration and Availability of Final Scope

Statewide - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption and Implementation of the Statewide Greenway Trails Plan may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The Final Scope is available from from the contact listed below and on line at: https://parks.ny.gov/inside-our-agency/master-plans.aspx.

The action involves the preparation of a plan for a comprehensive statewide system of non-motorized multi-use trails (Greenway Trails) as directed by legislation signed by Governor Cuomo in November 2019. This Statewide Greenway Trails Plan will identify trail user types, address trail needs and trends, and discuss the benefits of trails. The creation of the draft plan will solicit input from a variety of state and local stakeholders as well as from the general public. The Plan will also compile a GIS inventory of existing and proposed non-motorized, shared-use trails across the state. The Plan will provide a vision, goals and recommendations that will guide future planning and development of Greenway Trails in the State. The project is located throughout New York State.

Positive Declaration

Statewide - The New York State Department of Public Service (NYS DPS), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The 2019 Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) strengthened and accelerated New York State's existing clean energy targets. The CLCPA directs the Public Service Commission to establish a program to require that: (1) jurisdictional load serving entities have secured generation from renewable energy systems to serve at least 70% of load in 2030 (the 70 by 30 goal); and (2) that "the statewide electrical demand system will be zero emissions" by 2040. The CLCPA also sets technology-specific requirements, including the deployment of at least 9,000 MW of offshore wind by 2035, 6,000 MW of photovoltaic solar by 2025, and 3 GW of energy storage resources by 2030. The Public Service Commission, as lead agency, has prepared a Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS), which builds upon and incorporates by reference relevant material from previous environmental reviews conducted in 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2020, and analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with the procurement of the incremental renewable resources needed to satisfy the CLCPA mandates. The project is located throughout New York State.
