UAlbany published its legal notice stating that its Draft Environmental Impact Statement is ready, setting a comment period through January 22, 2010, and a public hearing on January 14, 2010. The notice appears below.
At this moment, UAlbany has only two potential sites for student housing - the Southeast Corner of the Uptown Campus or on the Harriman Campus. While they are pursuing the Harriman Campus option, that option requires approval by the Harriman Research and Technology Development Corporation Board of Directors. That meeting is scheduled for January 11, 2010. Until the Board acts favorably on the proposal, UAlbany will be building on the original site.
The Impact Statement isn't available yet. When it does appear, please read it very carefully, and raise any concerns that you may have by sending your comments to UAlbany, and showing up at the public meeting.
Stay in touch!
