Negative Declaration

Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Application for Subdivision Involving Regulated Wetlands - General Permit 2011G-1 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposed issuance of a new general permit, on conditions, to allow an expedited review process for certain subdivisions involving wetlands. This general permit 2011G-1 will apply throughout the Adirondack Park and will be effective until revoked or modified by the APA.

In order to utilize this general permit each applicant must submit a completed and signed "Application For Subdivisions Involving Regulated Wetlands." APA staff will review the application for completeness, conduct a site visit (if necessary) and determine if the proposed project meets the terms and conditions of this general permit/order. If approvable, authorized APA representatives will sign and return to the applicant the "Application and Certification" form. The applicant may not begin the subdivision involving regulated wetlands activities until the APA signed application and certification has been received.

Eligibility:

This general permit/certification:

1. The sole basis of APA permit or variance jurisdiction on the project site is a subdivision of lands involving wetlands.
2. The project sponsor submits to the APA a complete application, including all required attachments.
3. Unless designated on the application map/plat as restricted against development, each proposed lot contains sufficient area for construction of an access road or driveway at least 100 feet from all wetlands on slopes of less than 15% and sufficient area for development at 100 feet from all wetlands and on slopes of less than 25% as documented by APA staff using available maps and data, or by submission of surveyed topographic information from the project sponsor.

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.

Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit 2011G-2: Herbicide Vegetation Management for Guide Rail and Sign and Delineator Posts Adjacent to Wetlands in the Adirondack Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposed issuance of a new general permit, on conditions, to the New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT) authorizing a vegetative management program allowing certain herbicides to be applied within 100 feet of wetlands. This general permit will be effective from the date of issuance until modified or revoked by APA.

This general permit authorizes NYS DOT to control or eliminate vegetation through the use of non-restricted herbicides under guide rails and sign and delineator posts, as described in the approved Vegetation Management Plan. The general permit will require a minimum 5 foot no-herbicide buffer around all wetlands, and will prohibit the application of herbicides under conditions that may cause off-target drift. The general permit will also provide for monitoring of impacts and potential implementation of alternatives.

Objectives of general permit include: reducing costly labor-intensive control techniques for grass, weeds, vines, brush and woody plant growth along guide rails and sign and delineator posts; using materials and application techniques that are environmentally safe and provide one-season control to a broad spectrum of plants; and developing a program that will facilitate improved safety conditions for inspection and maintenance of guide rails by improving visibility and drainage.

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.
