Greene County - The Town of Windham Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Destination Windham will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the conversion of an existing ski area parking lot to a grassed area for a beginner ski trail, construction of a 41 unit condominium building with one commercial/real estate office and underground parking, construction of an indoor ice skating rink, conversion and expansion of the former wastewater treatment facility to an expanded care building, demolition of two single family rental buildings and appurtenant structures, and relocation of parking as well as ancillary roadway and stormwater enhancements.

Delaware, Greene and Schoharie Counties - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Forest Management Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYC DEP for a Forest Management Plan to provide a broad-based set of forest management activities that could be undertaken on currently owned or future acquired New York City water supply lands to manage, improve and regenerate the New York City owned watershed land. This project, known as the Forest Management Plan, encompasses the Croton, Delaware, and Catskill water supply systems (referred to collectively as The Watershed); covering 1,971 square miles in parts of eight counties with three reservoir systems for a total of 19 reservoirs and three controlled lakes. The Croton watershed is located east of the Hudson River, in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties, with a small portion in the State of Connecticut. The majority of the Catskill system is located west of the Hudson River, in Ulster, Schoharie, Delaware and Greene Counties, with connections to the Boyd Corners and West Branch basin in Putnam County (East of the Hudson). The Delaware system is located west of the Hudson, to the west of the Catskill system. The Project applies to all City water supply lands within the Watershed and adjacent city-owned lands.
The goal of the Forest Management Plan is to protect water quality by providing guidance for ecologically diverse, vigorous and sustainable forests that are resilient to disturbance, and capable of natural regeneration of desired species.
