Applicant:

Camphill Ghent Inc
84 Camphill Rd
Copake, NY 12516

Facility:

Camphill Ghent Elder Care Initiative
St Rte 66 - 1 Mi S of Chatham
Ghent, NY

Application ID:

4-1038-00142/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Ghent, Columbia County


Project Description:

The applicant is proposing to construct a planned residential development consisting of a 62 unit independent assisted living and adult care facility. The Department has deemed this application complete and is soliciting public comment on the potential impacts associated with this project.

The facility, to be built in two phases, will include up to 13 buildings, including commercial/retail space, medical offices, parking areas and associated roadways. Portions of the construction will impact both state (NYS Freshwater Wetland CH-3) and federal wetlands and state wetland adjacent areas. Impacts to the wetland will occur should the construction of the access road connection onto NYS Route 66 (southern access) be built and as a result of the construction of internal site roadways and buildings.

The applicant has presented two alternative proposals to access the site from NYS Route 66, a southern access and a northern access. The southern access would impact approximately 0.50 acres of state regulated wetland adjacent area (up to 13' and 4,000 cubic yards of fill) and trigger the subsequent need to compensate the impacts with supplemental wetland mitigation and/or creation and will additionally impact 162 continuous feet of federal wetland/stream and drainage channel.

The northern access would result in no impacts to the wetland adjacent area and leave the existing stream/drainage course virtually unchanged.

In addition, internal roadways and buildings would impact approximately 0.026 acres of state wetland, 0.309 acres of federal wetland and 0.696 acres of state regulated adjacent area. These impacts would occur regardless of whether the southern or northern access road is utilized.

This notice has been prepared to seek comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on the permit issuance or denial, or alternative and as such, does not signify Department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought. Comments should be submitted to the contact person noted below.

Availability of Application Documents:
