Negative Declaration

Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida and St. Lawrence Counties - The New York State Adirondack Park Agency (NYS APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices for the Control of Terrestrial and Aquatic Invasive Species on Forest Preserve Lands in the Adirondack Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action replaces the existing approved "Inter-Agency Work Plan For Management of Terrestrial Invasive Plant Species on State Land in the Adirondack Park" with the "Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices (BMP) for the Control of Terrestrial and Aquatic Invasive Species on Forest Preserve Lands in the Adirondack Park" that provides a list of Best Management Practices for the management of invasive species on State lands within the Adirondack Park. The new Inter-Agency Guidelines provide additional BMP's for control of invasive species to include terrestrial, aquatic, and forest pest and pathogen species on State Land as well as site specific documentation required prior to implementation. A significant guideline of the State Land Master Plan (SLMP) is to protect the integrity of established native flora and fauna and to restore native species when feasible. The Guidelines are intended to meet the resource protection and rehabilitation goals expressed in the State Land Master Plan through available control methods and with minimum impact on the environment. The Guidelines identify target invasive species and recommended Best Management Practices. The NYS APA comment period deadlines ends on February 11, 2010. The project is located on all State land units within the boundary of the Adirondack Park of New York State.
