ENB - Region 3 Notices 2/8/2012

Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Marina Maintenance Dredging and Dock Reconfiguration will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYS OPRHP for a maintenance dredging and dock reconfiguration project at the Norrie State Park Marina. The proposed project involves maintenance dredging to remove accumulated sediment within the marina and restore available boat draft. Hydraulic dredging will be used to remove accumulated sediments and the dredge spoils will be pumped directly to an upland area located approximately 1,500 feet north of the marina and dewatered at this location. After dewatering the spoils will be placed within a former adjacent borrow pit. NYS OPRHP has received a Beneficial Use Determination from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for this use of the dredge spoils. The dewatering and disposal areas will be restored to make them usable for recreational purposes. The project also includes the reconfiguration of docks to better accommodate boaters. The work is expected to take place in the fall of 2012 after the marina closes for the season. The project is located at the Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park Marina on Old Post Road in Staatsburgh, New York.

Ulster County - The Rosendale Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Robert Smith - Special Use Permit #2011-10 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to renovate the existing building into four apartments, one of which will be handicap accessible. The proposed changes to the site provide a gravel parking area for eight vehicles. There will be no change in the total square footage of the building's footprint, which is 3,630 square feet. The site disturbance related to construction activities (including the footprint of the house) is approximately one-half (0.5) acre and is limited to the portion of the site that has been previously disturbed for the existing residential improvements. The site is serviced by municipal water and sewer.

The footprint of the existing building will remain intact. In accordance with Chapter 75-28, it conforms to conditional uses allowed by Special Permit of the Town of Rosendale Code. The proposed renovation of this single family dwelling into four apartments is allowed in the R-1 zone. It meets the bulk density requirements of having 12,500 square feet of property available for each unit/apartment for districts provided with water and sewer.

The proposed project is a Type 1 action because of its proximity to the Snyder Estate Natural Cement Historic District which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. No other critical environmental areas, unique features or unusual land forms are known to exist within or near the subject parcel. Distance from the boundary of the Snyder Estate and the vegetative screening that will remain in place, mitigates the potential for significant adverse impact to this unique historical feature.

The project is located at 24 Cambell Street in Rosendale, New York.
