Project No. 7153-018

Commission staff will hold two public scoping meetings and an environmental site review in the vicinity of the project to receive input on the scope of the NEPA document.  An evening meeting will focus on receiving input from the public and a daytime meeting will focus on the concerns of resource agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and Indian Tribes.  We invite all interested agencies, Indian Tribes, NGOs, and individuals to attend one or both meetings.  The times and locations of these meetings are as follows:

Evening Scoping Meeting

DATE        :            Monday, April 29, 2024

TIME         :            7:00 p.m. EDT

PLACE      :            Village of Victory Town Hall

ADDRESS :            23 Pine Street, Victory Mills, NY 12884


At the scoping meetings, Commission staff will:  (1) summarize the environmental issues tentatively identified for analysis in the NEPA document; (2) solicit from the meeting participants all available information, especially quantifiable data, on the resources at issue; (3) encourage statements from experts and the public on issues that should be analyzed in the NEPA document, including viewpoints in opposition to, or in support of, the staff’s preliminary views; (4) determine the resource issues to be addressed in the NEPA document; and (5) identify those issues that require a detailed analysis, as well as those issues that do not require a detailed analysis.


The meetings are recorded by a stenographer and become part of the formal record of the Commission proceeding on the project.  Individuals, NGOs, Indian Tribes, and agencies with environmental expertise and concerns are encouraged to attend the meeting and to assist the staff in defining and clarifying the issues to be addressed in the NEPA document.
