The Lindenhurst Village Board is moving forward with plans to construct a downtown police substation and comfort station after finding there would be no environmental impact on the area.
An environmental impact review is required by New York’s State Environmental Quality Review Act.
At last week’s village board meeting, trustees approved a recommendation by Deputy Village Administrator Douglas Madlon and architect Harold Gebhard that there would not be an environmental impact by the construction, which will be done in the village square.
At the same site, the village also plans to rebuild a gazebo that collapsed from a nor’easter in March 2010.
Village clerk-treasurer Shawn Cullinane said the village is waiting for Suffolk County, which owns the land, to sign off on both the substation/comfort station and gazebo.
He said the village would like to start construction on both in the spring or summer.
He said the cost of the substation/comfort station — which he said would likely be open only during events — is unknown but would hopefully come mostly from state and county money.
The money for rebuilding the gazebo will come from insurance, he said.
