Project Title: Champlain Stone, Ltd.

Location: West side of Pike Brook Road in the Town of Dresden, New York.

Comment Period Ends: July 8, 2010

Project Description: The action involves the expansion of an existing permitted mineral extraction by two additional extraction areas totaling 5.4 acres over the next five years. This expanded extraction area is to have an overall 50 acre Life of Mine area over its projected 100 year lifespan. Currently occurring extraction and processing operations will continue as permitted (annually between April and mid-December, Monday through Saturday, during the daylight hours between 6:00 a.m. and 5 p.m.) and there will be no increase in the number of truckloads of excavated and processed stone which will depart the project site on a daily basis (currently a maximum of 15) due to this expansion. Annually, approximately 20 "bump" blasts per year at each new extraction area are proposed to occur. The expansion area was previously approved for mineral extraction by APA permit 89-102; that project was never undertaken. The purpose of the mineral extraction is to develop different products for market and not increase the overall production of the entire mining operation. The project also requires a Mined Land Reclamation permit from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.


Negative Declaration

Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit for Change in Use of an Existing Commercial, Public/Semi-Public, or Industrial Building will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the issuance of a general permit pursuant to §809(13) of the Adirondack Park Agency Act (Executive Law Article 27) authorizing an expedited Agency review process for a project to change from a lawful use in an existing commercial, public/semi public, or industrial use building to a different use which results in no material change to the exterior of the building and its intensity of use, and no material change to the project site other than installation of new signage in full conformance with 9 NYCRR Appendix Q-3.

Any project which potentially involves a material increase in noise or light pollution, requires air emission permits, or significantly increases traffic will not be eligible for this general permit. Changes in use for buildings located in the applicable setback distances set forth in §806 of the Act are not eligible for this permit. Changes from commercial use to public/semi-public or industrial use or visa versa in a designated river area as defined in 9NYCRR Part 577 are not eligible for this permit.

The Agency's Deputy Director of Regulatory Programs would determine whether the project(s) as proposed adequately conform to certain eligibility criteria. Only if it is determined that the project is in conformance with that criteria will use of the General Permit be allowed. Otherwise, an individual permit application will be required.

The projects authorized by this General Permit would be undertaken and completed only as described in a completed General Permit Application and as shown on approved project site plans and in accordance with the terms and conditions of a separate General Permit Certificate to be obtained for each project from the Agency. If the activities are approvable, the Agency's Deputy Director of Regulatory Programs would issue the Certificate generally within several days of determining the application complete and conducting a field visit. The Certificate would need to be recorded by the Project Sponsor in the County Clerk's Office.

The project is located in all or portions of the following counties within the Adirondack Park Blue Line: St. Lawrence, Essex, Oneida, Lewis, Clinton, Franklin, Herkimer, Hamilton, Warren, Saratoga, Washington and Fulton, New York.
