The Newstead Town Board Monday night agreed unanimously to designate itself the lead agency in the environmental review of a proposed addition to Kelly Schultz Antiques at 11111 Main Road.

The board directed Code Enforcement Officer Donnal D. Folger to begin the required studies at the site.

The proposed addition, to be used for exhibitions, will be 55,000 square feet. It will be heated and air-conditioned, officials said.

On another matter, state Department of Transportation officials say they will not reduce the speed limit on Hake Road.

In a letter to the county Department of Public Works, Richard E. Pratt, DOT assistant regional traffic engineer, said the traffic engineering investigation has been completed.

Considering the data and current radar checks he said, "A reduction in the speed limit would be inappropriate at this time."

Pratt added that the need for a reduced speed limit is based on a thorough evaluation of many factors, including roadway characteristics, roadside development and a statistical analysis of prevailing speeds.

"We previously reviewed Hake Road in June 1998," Pratt said. "Roadside development in this area has changed minimally since then."

Also Monday, the board:
