Scoping Notices

"Scoping" is for projects in the earliest stages of planning.  At the scoping stage, detailed information on a project's design, alternatives, and environmental impacts does not yet exist.  Sponsoring agencies are asking for comments from other agencies and from the public as to the scope of alternatives and environmental impacts that should be considered for further study.  Send your comments to the contact person listed for the project by the date indicated.
 

The following Scoping Notices have been submitted for review and comment.

1. Notice of Scoping for Preston Riverwalk  Remediation

Municipality where proposed project might be located: Preston

Address of Possible Project Location: 14 Route 12, Preston, CT 06365

Project Description: The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) will utilize up to $10 million of funds allocated under Public Act No. 15-193 to perform abatement, demolition and remediation activities at the approximately 393-acre former Norwich State Hospital located in the Town of Preston.  The site, which was formerly owned and operated by the State, has been included on the DECD Priority List of state-owned and formerly state-owned brownfields under Section 3 of (P.A. 15-193.)

The site has been dormant since the hospital closed its doors in 1996 and the Town of Preston took title to the property from the state in 2009.  In May 2016, the Town of Preston and the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority (MTGA) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with regard to the sale and redevelopment of the property.

The proposed State funding will not be used for the redevelopment of the site, which will be privately financed.  The $10 million will be used for the abatement of hazardous building materials, demolition activities, remediation, and related professional services.

4. Notice of Scoping for New Commuter Railroad Station - Barnum Avenue

Municipality where proposed project might be located: Bridgeport

Address of Possible Project Location: Barnum Avenue between Seaview Avenue and Pembroke Street

Project Description: The proposed project consists of constructing a new commuter rail station on the New Haven Line of Metro North Railroad.  The proposed project will include two center-island platforms to provide the flexibility to serve both local and express trains, reconstructing track to accommodate these platforms, cross-track passenger access, widening of the retained railroad embankment, catenary structure relocation, a surface parking lot, and associated landscaping.  The proposed project site is currently vacant, and was previously occupied by structures associated with the Remington Arms Facility.   The proposed station would require expanding the railroad right-of-way (ROW) to accommodate the passenger platforms and would require permanently closing or relocating Crescent Avenue between Hallett Street and Waterview Avenue, and potentially to Seaview Avenue.  The vacant site north of the ROW would serve as the surface parking lot.   It is also possible that some type of small facility may be constructed to serve multiple purposes including a waiting area for passengers.  It is proposed that vehicles would access the station from Barnum avenue; pedestrian and cyclists access routes to the station will consider ease of access, surrounding land use, and future development in the vicinity. 

Currently, East Bridgeport suffers from a lack of convenient rail service, needed to sustain existing businesses and meet the areas future transportation demands.  Due in large part to planning and financing efforts of the City of Bridgeport, significant development projects are underway or planned in East Bridgeport.  The proposed station will support this growth.  

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) is currently in coordination with the CT State Historic Preservation Office, which has determined that proposed project site contains above ground historic resources.  The New Haven Line track and associated infrastructure is considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.  The Department anticipates that the demolition of the retaining walls and associated track infrastructure will constitute an adverse effect.  Mitigation measures will be developed as the proposed project progresses.

5. Notice of Scoping for Seaside State Park Master Plan

Municipality where proposed project might be located: Waterford

Address of Possible Project Location: 36 Shore Road 

Project Description:  The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, Bureau of Outdoor Recreation is proposing to implement the Seaside State Park Master Plan (July 2016), which is to further the transformation of the former Seaside Regional Center site into a 32-acre State park.  The Master Plan has five main goals, which are: 1) promote and improve recreation and public access to Long Island Sound; 2) Restore, preserve, and reuse historic assets where feasible; 3) preserve and improve the site’s ecology and habitat; 4) create an implementation and operating plan that is financially feasible; and 5) engage the public in helping shape the future of Seaside State Park.

The Master Plan explored and identified three potential State park concepts.  The three concepts and their main elements are:

1) Destination Park: a) active beach park with serpentine boardwalk and living shoreline; b) park lodge featuring renovation of historic buildings, sun decks and restaurant, adjacent private cottage rentals; and c) living shoreline restoration of oyster reef and coastal woodland habitat.
2) Ecological Park: a) nature trail linking wildlife viewing areas; b) landscape art installations with a heliotropic theme; c) living shoreline restoration of oyster reef and coastal woodland habitat; and d) historic buildings demolished.
3) Passive Recreation Park: a) low maintenance open lawns and tree groves; b) unprogrammed park grounds and beaches; c) restoration of seawall; and d) historic buildings demolished.
The Master Plan has identified a modified version of the Destination Park concept as a preferred option; however and at this point in time, the Environmental Impact Evaluation would evaluate all three concepts, along with the no-action alternative.

6. Notice of Scoping for Proposed Commuter Railroad Station

Municipality where proposed project might be located: Orange, Connecticut

Address of Possible Project Location:  The proposed project site is located on the eastern end of Salemme Lane, approximately 0.25 miles south of Interstate 95.  The site is bounded on the west by Marsh Hill Road, on the east by the Oyster River, and on the southeast by the Metro North Railroad.  

Project Description: The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) is proposing to construct a New Haven Line commuter rail station on the Metro North Railroad in the Town of Orange, CT through a public-private partnership agreement that will include Transit Oriented Development (TOD).  The commuter rail station will include station platforms, canopies, a pedestrian overpass, and a service access road within the existing railroad right-of-way.  A commuter drop-off/pick-up, taxi stand and bus stop areas will be part of the TOD developer's site work. Two new approximately 1020 feet long, canopied station platforms, one bound for New Haven and one bound for Stamford and points west are proposed.  A covered pedestrian bridge will connect the two platforms via stairtowers and elevators.  The Stamford-bound platform will connect to sidewalks leading to a proposed commercial/commuter parking structure that is being constructed as part of a proposed TOD adjacent to the proposed commuter rail station.

The proposed TOD, which is subject to local review and approval, will include improvements and extension of the existing Salemme Lane, and is anticipated to include construction of 6 new buildings, housing 200 dwelling units and approximately 21,500 square feet of retail space, 43 on-street and 80 off-street surface parking spaces, an approximately 800 space parking structure, and associated site landscaping and stormwater management features.  The proposed parking structure will consist of a 3-level 230+/- space section that will be dedicated parking for the TOD development and a second, 6-level, 265+/- space commercial/commuter garage that will serve the rail station.  The Department will share expenses for the portion of the garage dedicated to commuter parking.  The TOD design also provides opportunity for future pedestrian connection with the Yale West Campus to the north. 

Elements of the project associated with the rail station will be funded by the State of Connecticut and the Federal Transit Administration.

Post-Scoping Notices: Environmental Impact Evaluation Not Required
 
This category is required by the October 2010 revision of the Generic Environmental Classification Document for State Agencies. A notice is published here if the sponsoring agency, after publication of a scoping notice and consideration of comments received, has determined that an Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE) does not need to be prepared for the proposed project.
 

The following Post-Scoping Notice has been submitted for publication in this edition.

 

1. Post-Scoping Notice for Relocation of I-91 Northbound (NB) Interchange 29 and Widening of I-91 NB and Route 15 NB to I-84 Eastbound (EB).

 

Municipalities where project will be located: Hartford and East Hartford

 

CEPA Determination:  On August 18, 2015 the Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) published a Notice of Scoping to solicit public comments for this project in the Environmental Monitor.  During the scoping period, the Department received comments from the Department of Public Health, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the Office of Policy and Management, and one member of the public.  The Department has taken those comments into consideration and has concluded that the project does not require the preparation of Environmental Impact Evaluation under CEPA.

 

In addition to requirements under CEPA, an Environmental Assessment was performed under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to determine the proper level of Federal environmental documentation.  After concluding this process, the Department will be seeking a Finding of No Significant Impact under NEPA since the project is not expected to have any associated significant environmental impacts. 

The agency's conclusion is documented in a Memo of Findings and Determination and Environmental Assessment Checklist

What happens next: The Connecticut Department of Transportation expects the project to go forward. This is expected to be the final notice of the project to be published in the Environmental Monitor.

 

 

After Scoping, an agency that wishes to undertake an action that could significantly affect the environment must produce, for public review and comment, a detailed written evaluation of the expected environmental impacts. This is called an Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE). 


The following EIE Notice has been submitted for publication in this edition.

1. Notice of EIE for Southbury Affordable-Elderly Housing Development
