Notice of Acceptance of Draft Generic EIS - Extension of Comment Period
St. Lawrence County - The St. Lawrence County Legislature, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed St. Lawrence County Multi-Use Recreational Trail System may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The proposed St. Lawrence County Multi-Use Recreational Trail System incorporates the use of existing Town and County roadways, County-owned parcels and some private parcels of land, to form a network of trails that cover a large expanse of the County. A base network of trails has been identified and environmental conditions reviewed. This network consists of existing trails that have been used by local outdoor enthusiasts for years. The proposed trail system will provide excellent trail opportunities for ATV enthusiasts, horseback riding, dog sledding, mountain biking, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Expansion of the trail system is expected in the future as a result of the County's cooperative efforts in working with local town governments, private landowners, local user clubs, and other groups or individuals affiliated with the outdoor industry. Therefore a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement has been compiled and made available for public review and comment. The project is located on various local roads, logging roads, and off road trails throughout the St. Lawrence County, New York.
A hard copy of the Draft Generic EIS is available at St. Lawrence County Highway Department, 44 Park Street, Canton, NY 13617. The online version is available at the following publically accessible web site: www.co.st-lawrence.ny.us/. The Public Comment Period has been extended by sixty (60) days and will now be accepted until August 17, 2011.
