CDBG-DR 4TH Precinct Public Notice

New York State CDBG-DR Application Available Review 

The County of Nassau, NY announces that it intends to submit an application for New York State Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program funds on or about July 30, 2015 for the following project: Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) 4th Precinct Station House. 

Activity: New York State CDBG-DR funds totaling $12,000,000 ($12M) will be used to 
demolish the existing NCPD 4th Precinct Station House and associated facilities and construct a new station house to serve as the headquarters for the NCPD 4th Precinct. The proposed new station house will be approximately 2.5 times larger than the existing and will be designed to withstand severe storm event conditions, such as high winds and heavy snow loading.  The number of work stations will be increased and Information Technology capability will be improved for utilization before and following storm events.  The proposed new station house will provide adequate space for equipment and file storage.  The building will be designed to meet current police security requirements.  A new emergency generator will be installed to ensure operation of the proposed new station house during and following storm events.

Objective: The project would increase resiliency by enhancing emergency response and decreasing recovery time as the proposed new station house would be designed to withstand severe storm conditions.  Therefore, the NCPD 4th Precinct Station House would be able to serve as a community information dissemination center during and following severe storm events.

Location:  The NCPD 4th Precinct Station House is located at 1699 Broadway in Hewlett, NY.  It serves the south shore communities of Inwood, Hewlett, Hewlett Bay Park, Hewlett Neck, Woodsburgh, Hewlett Harbor, Woodmere, Cedarhurst, Lawrence, East Rockaway, Bay Park, East Atlantic Beach, Atlantic Beach Estates, Oceanside, Atlantic Beach, Island Park, Lido Beach and Point Lookout.

Amount: Table 1 shows each CDBG-DR activity and the corresponding dollar amounts for the NCPD 4th Precinct Station House work, along with the estimates of total project costs.
