Negative Declaration

Onondaga and Oswego Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Transfer of Jurisdiction of Frenchman's Island State Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the transfer of jurisdication of Frenchman's Island State Park from New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC). The park will be managed by NYS DEC as a Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and will likely be incorporated into the nearby Cicero Swamp WMA. Since NYS DEC and NYS OPRHP have agreed that there will be similar management practices on the property, the proposed transfers could be classified as Type II and exempt from SEQRA as continuing agency administration and management. See, 6 NYCRR 617.5 (c) (20). However, both agencies have agreed to conduct a SEQRA review for the transfer of the property. The project is located on Oneida Lake, Towns of Cicero and Constantia, New York.
