Written comments on the accuracy of the proposed changes to the maps may be mailed to the person listed below. All comments received through April 23, 2010 will be considered. Pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 664, once the announcement of a proposed amendment has been made, no activity subject to regulation under the Freshwater Wetlands Act may be initiated without a permit from NYS DEC within the area that is the subject of the proposal (including the regulated 100 foot adjacent area) until the Commissioner has either amended the maps or denied the amendments.

Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kingsview Riverside Gravel Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed modification to the existing Mined Land Reclamation Permit for the Kingsview Enterprises, Inc. Riverside Gravel Pit. The proposal is to change the reclamation objective from agriculture to industrial, to accommodate continued C&D processing of brick, rock, concrete and asphalt millings. The project is located on the southwest corner of the Riverside Road and U.S. Route 62 intersection in the Town of Kiantone, New York.

Erie County - The Town of Amherst Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Dockside Village Development - Dockside Apartments Phase II and Amended Dockside Village Subdivision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Dockside Apartments Phase II project consists of 80 units in 10 buildings on 6.0 ± acres of land located west of the recently constructed Phase I apartment development, on the north side of Dockside Parkway. The amended Dockside Village Subdivision project accomplishes two objectives: 1) elimination of 16 previously approved single-family lots on Shoreline Parkway, and 2) reduction of 11 approved lots on Dockside Parkway to 8 lots. The project also includes the extension of Dockside Parkway by approximately 800 feet, as approved with the original subdivision.

The entire Dockside Village project site measures 274 ± acres and is located on the west side of Transit Road, 1,250 ± feet north of Dann Road in the Town of Amherst, New York. A Lead Agency coordination letter was issued on February 6, 2002 for the initial Dockside Village road and utilities, apartment complex and open development area for the Dockside Village subdivision. Lead Agency re-establishment letters were subsequently issued on October 26, 2004, February 15, 2005 and February 20, 2007 for amendments to the initial proposal.
