Project Description: The action involves the construction of a public use parking area for the existing Town Recreation Center.
Jefferson County - The Village of Ellisburg Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Ellisburg Water Distribution System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of a Village water distribution system, including: the installation of a water storage tank, water mains, service laterals, water meters, fire hydrants and other appurtenances. Water would be supplied by the Town of Ellisburg Water District No. 2, with supplemental water supplied by the private water system of the Village of Mannsville in order to meet the projected need of 21,000 gallons per day. A previous proposal by the Town of Ellisburg to develop additional wells to meet this need was unsuccessful, leading to the current modified proposal to obtain water from the Village of Mannsville. The project is located throughout the Village of Ellisburg, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Louisville Sand Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 67.0 acre surface sand mine within a 148.50 acre parcel. The project site is on property owned by Seaway Timber and Patrick Curran. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Croghan Loamy Fine Sand, Malone Loam, Naumburg Loamy Fine Sand and Udorthent soil types on the site. Mining is proposed to take place below the local water table with a pond and island reclamation. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material from the bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1.5 million cubic yards of sand over the estimated 10 year operational life of the mine. Material will generally be stockpiled as unprocessed run-of-bank sand however if needed the sand will be processed with a portable screening plant. Final reclamation will restore the site to a pond and island and vegetated open space to promote wildlife habitat. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 67.0 (LOM) acres. The project is located east of County Route 39, approximately 8,500 feet north of the intersection of County Route 39 and NYS Route 310 in the Town of Louisville, New York.

Herkimer, Lewis, Onieda and St. Lawrence Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit for Installation of New or Replacement Telecommunications Towers at Existing Agency Approved Sites will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Adirondack Park Agency for a new general permit entitled "Installation of New or Replacement Telecommunications Towers at Existing Agency Approved Sites" that would allow for an expedited review process for 1) the installation of one new telecommunications tower in the immediate proximity of an existing telecommunications structure previously approved by the Agency and where the existing access drive and utility infrastructure are used to the greatest extent practicable and 2) the replacement of a pre-existing telecommunications tower or a telecommunications tower previously approved by the Agency to address structural deficiencies of the existing tower in order to accommodate co-location of an additional telecommunications provider on said structure; with potential for some de-minimus increase in height. To be approvable under this General Permit, there must be no significant adverse change in the overall visibility of the tower site as seen from public viewing points.
The APA'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 project is located in all or portions of the following within the Adirondack Park "Blue Line": St. Lawrence, Essex, Oneida, Lewis, Clinton, Franklin, Herkimer, Hamilton, Warren, Saratoga, Washington and Fulton Counties, New York.
