    BOARD OF EDUCATION

     

    Resolution Amending and Confirming SEQRA Negative Declaration for 

    Capital Improvements Project, 2017


    WHEREAS, in March 2017, the Warsaw Central School District (the “District”) and its Board of Education (the “Board”) proposed to undertake a Capital Improvements Project, 2017 which included various renovation, upgrade, and safety and site work improvements at the District’s sites and facilities; and 

    WHEREAS, the proposed Capital Improvements Project, 2017 action was classified as a “Type I” action under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”), and, in accordance with SEQRA and State Education Department policy and procedure, a coordinated review was conducted, and the District/Board was the “Lead Agency” for purposes of undertaking the coordinated environmental review of the proposed action; and

    WHEREAS, the District/Board duly considered the proposed action, the Environmental Assessment Form, the criteria for determining whether the action will have a significant adverse impact on the environment as set forth in 6 N.Y.C.R.R. § 617.7(c) of the SEQRA regulations, and such other information deemed appropriate; and 

    WHEREAS, the District/Board identified the relevant areas of environmental concern, took a hard look at these areas, determined that the proposed action will not result in a significant adverse impact on the environment, and in a Negative Declaration in March 2017 made a reasoned elaboration of the basis for its determination; and 

    WHEREAS, in April 2017 prior to the public vote, the District/Board revised the originally proposed project plan to remove various scope items such as some pavement work from the proposed Capital Improvements Project, 2017 and determined that the modifications to the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 proposed in April 2017 would not change the March 2017 determination that the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 would not result in a significant adverse impact on the environment; and 

    WHEREAS, the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 was approved by the qualified voters of the District on May 16, 2017; and

    WHEREAS, the District is constructing its Capital Improvements Project, 2017 which consists of the elements described in the original March 2017 and amended April 2017 SEQRA documents, and, since project funds remain, the District proposes additional modest scope items including emergency power to data closets at the Middle-High School, Elementary School, and District Office; emergency power to the new public address system at the Middle-High School and Elementary School; emergency power to the new walk-in-cooler/freezer at the Elementary School; a new 150 KW generator at the Middle-High School, and relocation of the Middle-High School’s existing 80 KW generator to the Elementary School, or alternatively, a new generator at the Elementary School; and 

    WHEREAS, the proposed modifications to the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 do not, in the judgement of the Board, represent a material change in the overall scope and nature of the project and the voter-approved proposition for the project specifically authorized the Board to make such amendments to the project scope as the Board may deem to be in the best interest of the District (assuming the overall spending limits set by the voters of the District are not exceeded), such amendments to be accomplished by the Board’s reallocation, supplementation, revision or deletion of components of the project; and

    WHEREAS, the District/Board as the lead agency under SEQRA reviewed the additional modest modifications proposed to the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 and related amendments to the Environmental Assessment Form, the criteria for determining whether the action will have a significant adverse impact on the environment as set forth in 6 N.Y.C.R.R. § 617.7(c) of the SEQRA regulations, and such other information as has been deemed appropriate;

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Warsaw Central School District Board of Education that:

    1. The District/Board as the lead agency under SEQRA determines that the proposed modifications to the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 will not change the March 2017 determination that the Capital Improvements Project, 2017 will not result in a significant adverse impact on the environment or the April 2017 confirmation of that determination.

    2. The attached amended Negative Declaration, incorporated herein by reference, is issued and adopted for the reasons stated in the attached amended Negative Declaration. 

    3. The Superintendent of the District is authorized to sign and file or have filed on behalf of the District and its Board all documents necessary to comply with SEQRA.
