Location: East of New York State Route 73 along the East Branch of the AuSable River at Rivermede Farm in the Town of Keene, New York.
Comment Period Ends: April 1, 2010
Project Description: The action involves stream and streambank restoration and stabilization improvements along approximately 2,600 feet of the East Branch of the AuSable River, a designated recreational river in the New York State Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers System. The purposes of the project is to provide a stable river channel with protected banks, create in-stream faunal habitat, restore a riparian buffer, and eliminate the loss of land now occurring due to erosion. Proposed improvements include realignment of the stream channel, installation of four rock cross vanes, six log/boulder J-hooks, and six root wads. A temporary by-pass diversion channel will also be installed. The project will result in the disturbance of 3.15 acres of wetland area which is to be compensated by the creation of 4.33 acres of wetland. Material stockpiling is to occur in open, non-wetland areas on-site.
Washington County - The Village of Fort Edward Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Annexation and Purchase of Portion of Rogers Island will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the joint purchase by the Town of Fort Edward and the Village of Fort Edward of a portion of lands located on Rogers Island in the Village of Fort Edward for future recreational, economic development and other public purposes as the Town Board and Board of Trustees might determine. The Town Board and Board of Trustees are also pursuing the purchase of property owned by the New York State Canal Corporation located along the southeasterly shore of Rogers Island immediately adjacent to the lands being purchased on the annexed map. In addition, the Board of Trustees and Town Board have received a petition for annexation for the lands lying south of the corporate limits of the Village of Fort Edward and within the Town of Fort Edward on Rogers Island and partially within the bounds of the Hudson River as set forth on the Petition for Annexation. Though unrelated, the proximity and timing of both actions warrant, in the Boards' opinions, review of these proposed actions together.
The total property involved in this action is roughly 12.42 ± acres, which consists of the 9.524 acres to be purchased from Rogers Island Resorts, LLC (3.6 acres of which is included in the annexation); .3 ± acres to be purchased from the New York State Canal Corp.
