WHEREAS, the Board of Education, in accordance with Article 5-A of the General Municipal Law, invited sealed bids for Paint and Field Supplies; and

WHEREAS, the bids were opened publicly on September 29th, 2022 and zero bids were received for Paint and Field Supplies; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Education believes it to be in the best interests of the School District to reject and rebid Paint and Field Supplies;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Education, in the best interests of the School District, hereby rejects the bid for Paint and Field Supplies, on the basis that zero bids were received for such Contract, and directs that it be rebid.

5.14    BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Education hereby approves Bid Award Recommendation #B2022-15:  Generator Maintenance and Service to National Standby Repair, in the amount of $2,420.00 plus labor and materials for service when needed.

5.15    WHEREAS, the Board of Education of the Chappaqua Central School District is considering undertaking certain improvements to Horace Greeley High School, Robert Bell Middle School, Seven Bridges Middle School, Grafflin Elementary School, Westorchard Elementary School and Roaring Brook Elementary School (collectively, the “Project”), comprising maintenance upgrades and other improvements, including: resurfacing of existing parking surfaces and playgrounds, athletic field enhancements (e.g., resurfacing of fields with turf, field lighting, running track, bleachers), fencing repair and replacement, roof improvements/repairs, interior communications and mechanical system upgrades, and interior room improvements; the Project would also include the construction of new connecting corridor building additions, new storage and restroom buildings, and additional underground utility conduits at Horace Greeley High School, adding approximately 11,820 square feet of additional building floor area; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to the State Environmental Quality Review Act statute (Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law) and implementing regulations (“SEQRA”), the Board of Education has determined that the majority of the components of the Project would constitute “routine activities of educational institutions”, defined as Type II actions in Section 617.5 of Title 6 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations, and therefore would not be subject to environmental impact review under SEQRA; however, as the proposed modifications to Horace Greeley High School would exceed the 10,000 square foot threshold for Type II consideration, the Project as a whole was treated as an “Unlisted” action under SEQRA; and
    
WHEREAS, to assist it in its decision-making and planning, the Board of Education authorized KG+D Architects, PC to prepare an Environmental Assessment Form (“EAF”) to evaluate the Project’s potential for environmental impacts, which document, dated as of September 20, 2022, is attached hereto as Exhibit “A”; and 

WHEREAS, on September 1, 2022, the Board of Education provided its Notice of Intent to serve as lead agency to all potentially involved or interested agencies, which was not objected to by other involved or interested agencies; and
    
WHEREAS, the EAF, including the documentation appended thereto, concludes that, inter alia, the proposed ground disturbance associated with the Project would be limited to approximately 3,000 square feet at Seven Bridges Middle School and approximately 21,200 square feet at Horace Greeley High School, and is anticipated to occur over the course of 15 months; that the Project would potentially add an additional 0.1 acre of impervious surface within the New York City, which would be addressed through permitting by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection; that potential erosion during the period of ground disturbance would be minimized or avoided through the implementation of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan, which will include an erosion and sediment control plan; that, at a minimum, the erosion and sediment control plan would specify construction staging, installation and management of conventional erosion and sedimentation controls, and design elements for stormwater management post construction; that, with the implementation of appropriate sediment control measures, no significant adverse impacts to surface water or soil resources are expected; and

WHEREAS, the Project’s proposed exterior building modifications, building additions, and athletic field improvements would not cause any significant adverse environmental impacts, including visual or historic character impacts, to  National Register Eligible properties , including the Readers Digest Headquarters, due to their respective locations, existing visual relationship, and the overall context of the urban setting; and that while Robert Bell Middle School is a National Register Eligible structure and is located near the State and National Register-listed Church of St. Mary the Virgin & Greeley Grove, the interior renovations contemplated for the school would be implemented in coordination with the New York State Historic Preservation Office and would not have any significant adverse environmental impacts; and

WHEREAS, the EAF, including the documentation appended thereto, concludes that, inter alia, that there are no sensitive natural communities, habitats or species mapped or observed to exist on or near the already-developed Project site, and therefore no significant adverse impacts to ecological resources are anticipated; and

WHEREAS, the remaining Project Elements at Robert Bell Middle School, Roaring Brook Elementary School, Westorchard Elementary School, and Grafflin Elementary School, including resurfacing of existing paved areas and playgrounds, internal building construction/improvements, roof improvements/repairs, and fencing repair and replace, do not require extensive excavation and would not result in any significant adverse environmental impacts;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Education, pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 617, finds that based on a review of information about the project contained in the EAF and any attachments hereto, which are incorporated by reference herein, the proposed actions would not have a significant adverse impact on the environment; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Secretary shall file this Resolution with the District Office forthwith; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board will proceed to determine whether it will undertake the Project.

BY ORDER OF THE CHAPPAQUA CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF EDUCATION

5.16    WHEREAS, the Board of Education of the Chappaqua Central School District is planning a project, using repair reserve funds, involving the repair of a portion of the roof at Westorchard Elementary School; Steam Line Valve Repair/Replacement and Competition Field Public Address System repair at Horace Greeley High School; and Library Air Conditioning Repair at Robert E. Bell Middle School (“Proposed Action”);

WHEREAS, the Board proposes to proceed with the Proposed Action and wishes to take all actions  necessary in connection therewith in order to comply with the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”);  and

WHEREAS, the Board has reviewed the Proposed Action with respect to the Type II criteria set forth in the SEQRA Regulations at 6 NYCRR Part 617.5 and has determined that the Proposed Action is a Type II action pursuant to the SEQRA Regulations at Section 617.5(c)(1) [maintenance or repair involving no substantial changes in the structure or facility] and/or (10) [routine activities of educational institutions];
 
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Education of the Chappaqua Central School District, as the only lead agency, determines that the Proposed Action is a Type II Action pursuant to §617.5(c)(1) and/or (10) of the SEQRA Regulations, will not have any significant environmental impacts and no further action is necessary.
