Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Duanesburg, Schenectady County


Project Description:

Applicant proposes to construct a 13 lot single family residential subdivision, known as High Cliff Estates (formerly known as Drawbridge Estates), on 100.13 acres of undeveloped agricultural lands. The project will cause unavoidable impacts to 0.24 acres of Federal jurisdictional wetlands associated with a roadway crossing and lot grading. Portions of New York State Freshwater Wetland D-14 exists within the limits of the parcel, however, no direct impacts to this wetland will occur. To mitigate for permanent wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to place a deed restriction covenant upon approximately 39 acres of land within the parcel to be retained by the owner as a preservation area. The preservation area includes the remaining 9.94 acres of undisturbed wetlands, and will preserve this area in an undisturbed condition in perpetuity. In addition, the remainder of the preservation area shall be restricted in its use so that it shall remain forever free of any commercial or residential structures or improvements. Remaining undisturbed wetlands not included within the preservation area but residing within individual lots to be sold, will be protected by deed restrictions to protect these areas from future development in perpetuity. The project is located along the western side of Knight Road, approximately 5,000 feet north of the intersection of Knight road and NYS Route 20.
