The Town of Montgomery planning board declared the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) complete for the proposed Medline, Inc. warehouse at a meeting on July 8.
The DEIS addresses potential significant adverse environmental impacts generated by the project and mitigation measures.
The board commented on the completeness of the lighting and sewer plans for the project. Planning board member Richard Montemarano expressed concern about the plan’s outline for the use of an outdated sewer system.
“I really don’t think that the DEIS is complete ,” Montemarano said. “We’re depending on a town septic system that is 25 years old that may or may not be at capacity.”
Montemarano was the only dissenting vote.
Located on the east side of NYS Route 416 and north of Interstate I-84, the proposed 1.3-million-square-foot warehouse will contain offices, shipping and receiving, warehouse storages and areas for employees.
The public hearing for the DEIS for Medline will be on August 13 at 7 p.m. at the Valley Central Middle School cafeteria.
