Negative Declaration

Madison County - The Village of Cazenovia, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Cazenovia Local Law 2009-5 to Amend Zoning Code and Maps - College and Residential Districts will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a local law to amend the Village zoning code and map in accordance with the recently adopted Comprehensive Plan for the Village and Town of Cazenovia. The proposed new local law would create two new zoning districts to be known as College District 1 and College District 2 establishing new use and dimensional regulations applicable to lands that have been historically devoted to post-secondary educational uses by Cazenovia College. It would amend the existing use regulations within residential districts to limit the number of permitted nonresidential uses, and enact new outdoor lighting, landscaping and screening regulations for nonresidential uses in order to protect the character and quality of life within residential neighborhoods. The project is located throughout the Village of Cazenovia, New York .

The trail begins at the Farmers Market and extends southeast following the alignment of an existing footpath along Cascadilla Creek, then crosses the creek onto Willow Avenue.

Once in Stewart Park the trail follows the waterfront to the main entrance and at grade crossing with Norfolk Southern railroad, then goes behind the Ithaca Youth Bureau, where one leg of the trail will terminate at the City sidewalk on Route 34 and the other at the Tompkins County Visitors' Center. The trail passes through or is contiguous to several significant and valuable natural, cultural and water resources, including the Flood Control Channel, Cascadilla Creek, Fall Creek, Cayuga Lake, the Ithaca Farmers' Market, Newman Golf Course, Fuertes Bird Sanctuary, Stewart Park, the Ithaca Youth Bureau, and the historic Cascadilla Boathouse. Trail construction will require grading and paving for a 12 foot wide trail, modifications and/or repairs to the existing three bridges, relocation of fencing along the Cascadilla Creek segment, landscaping and drainage improvements. The project is located in the City of Ithaca, New York from the Farmer's Market to the Towmpkins County Visitors Center.
