Positive Declaration

Essex County - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Map Amendment 2010-03 may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposal by the Adirondack Park Agency for a map amendment (MA2010-03) to the Official Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan Map. The proposed map amendment was requested by Darlene Gough, a landowner within the proposed map amendment area. The proposed amendment would reclassify approximately 21 acres of land from Resource Management to Hamlet. The project is located south of NYS Route 22 and east of Church Lane, in the community of Wadhams, Town of Westport, New York.
