ENB - Region 3 Notices
Wetland Maps Filed
Subsequent to the promulgation of the final Freshwater Wetlands Maps for Orange County in 1987, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Region 3 Staff found several inaccuracies. These inaccuracies affect Orange County Maps 4 (Pine Bush Quad) and 13 (Maybrook Quad) of 26. Having fully investigated these sites, Staff sent notice of the proposed amendments to the affected landowners and published notice in local newspapers and in the Environmental Notice Bulletin. Legislative public hearings were held on May 22, 2007 and May 23, 2007. A public comment period was provided through June 11, 2007. Upon review of Staff's findings and recommendations relative to this matter, the Commissioner was satisfied that Staff appropriately responded to all oral and written comments on the proposed amendments, and that Staff's recommendations were consistent with the requirements of the Freshwater Wetlands Act and supported by the record. The Commissioner ordered that amendments be made to the final wetlands maps for Orange County Maps 4 and 13 of 26, effective May 14, 2008. A copy of the amended final maps will be filed with the office of the clerk of each affected local government and in the NYS DEC Region 3 New Paltz office.
