Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Colonie, Albany County


Project Description:

The proposed project called "Canterbury Crossing" is a planned unit development (PUD), located on an approximately 197 acre property between Loudon Road and Boght Road (a.k.a., Baker Road) in the Town of Colonie, Albany County. The project involves the development of 79 single-family house lots, 15 estate-style condominium buildings with four (4) units in each, 23 villa-style condominiums with four (4) units in each, 42 carriage homes, 58 senior citizen condominium units located in 14 two-story buildings, two (2) one-story buildings totaling 6,000 square feet of neighborhood retail space, and one (1) two-story office building totaling 30,000 square feet of office space. The site will be accessed from Loudon Road and Baker Road. The proposed development will be serviced by municipal water and sewer.

The project will result in impacts to approximately 2.81 acres of federally regulated wetlands, of which, 1.23 acres are also state regulated wetlands (Freshwater Wetland TN-11 - Class 2). Approximately 8.11 acres of state regulated wetland adjacent area will be permanently impacted by the proposed project and approximately 5.36 acres of adjacent area will be temporarily impacted. In addition, the project will impact approximately 156 linear feet of stream corridor. The proposed impacts are primarily a result of the construction of roads, utilities and stormwater management basins.

In order to mitigate for the proposed wetland impacts, a compensatory wetland mitigation plan has been prepared and proposes to establish 3.76 acres of wetlands. In addition to establishing wetlands, the proposed mitigation plan will plant as restoration, 2.4 acres of forested riparian buffer along the headwaters of the Salt Kill. The project also involves the preservation of approximately 40% of the property which will be deed restricted and owned and managed by a Homeowner's Association.
