A Message from the Director
On June 12, 2014, the Board of Directors for the New York State Urban Development Corporation, doing business as Empire State Development (“ESD”), accepted and approved the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (“the FSEIS”), for the Atlantic Yards Land Use Improvement and Civic Project as complete with respect to its scope, content and adequacy, and to authorize its publication, filing and circulation in accordance with applicable law.
The FSEIS assesses the potential environmental impacts of a prolonged construction period of Phase II of the Project (and a proposed shift of certain square footage from Phase I to Phase II of the Project and a proposed reduction in the number of parking spaces), identifies feasible mitigation measures, considers alternatives, and responds to oral and written comments submitted on the DSEIS by the public, government agencies, and elected officials.
On March 28, 2014, the Directors authorized acceptance of the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, or DSEIS, as satisfactory with respect to its scope, content and adequacy for purposes of commencing review under SEQRA. A public hearing on the DSEIS and proposed amendments to the 2009 Modified General Project Plan, or MGPP was held on April 30, 2014 and the written comment period on the DSEIS remained open until May 12th. ESD received over 60 written comments and more than 65 speakers presented oral testimony at the hearing. Both oral and written comments received were considered in preparing the FSEIS. The substantive comments, along with their responses, can be found in Chapter 8 of the FSEIS.
The following are materials in connection with the FSEIS and Proposed Amendment that you may find useful:
