Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing
Tompkins County - The Village of Cayuga Heights Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Deer Management Plan. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on December 6, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the Cayuga Heights Elementary School, 110 East Upland Road, Ithaca, NY 14850. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted for at least 10 days following the close of the public hearing. A copy of the Draft EIS may be viewed at: Village Offices, Kendal Public Library, and via the Village website at www.cayuga-heights.ny.us.
The action involves a proposal by the Village of Cayuga Heights to engage in deer population control by sterilizing approximately 20 to 60 does, followed by culling of deer living within the 1.84 square mile Village boundary. After these actions the Village will implement a program of ongoing maintenance of the herd size. This action is designed to reduce the size of the herd in the first three years, and then provide stability in the herd size thereafter, bringing the herd count closer to levels achieved in the wild. The long term target is a herd size of 20 to 60 deer total in the Village, versus the estimate of +200 as of Spring of 2009. Where possible, all healthy deer venison culled will be donated to local food banks. The project is located throughout the Village of Cayuga Heights, New York.
