ENB - Region 9 Notices 2/8/2012

Negative Declaration

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Corey Brown Pit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a 3.6 acre expansion of the currently permitted life-of-mine limits (LOML) of the Corey Brown Pit, for a total of 8.3 acres out of 38.15 acres owned by the applicant at this location. The modification also includes the addition of an impact crusher and small wash plant for the processing of sand and gravel materials; a new haul road connection to NYS Route 219. Upon reclamation of the mining site, the currently permitted 1.3 acre, 20 foot deep pond will be enlarged to approximately 5 acres in size and 50 feet deep; approximately 3 acres of meadow will be created; and the haul road connection to NYS Route 219 will remain for the truck driving school and as an entrance to the mining property.

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Erie County - The Town of Hamburg Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Lake Erie Commerce Center. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on February 27, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hamburg Town Hall, 6100 South Park Avenue, Hamburg, NY. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until March 9, 2012. The Draft EIS is available for review at the Town of Hamburg Planning Department or Office of the Town Clerk, 6100 South Park Avenue, Hamburg, NY and on line at: http://www.townofhamburgny.com/Important_Town_Documents-117736.html.

The action involves an application from the Hamburg New York Land Development Company for the approval of Pre-Permitted Site Designation for approximately 134 acres of land. The objective of this action is to satisfy the SEQR requirements for the project site through the preparation of a generic environmental impact statement, thereby allowing future proposed projects within the Lake Erie Commerce Center to proceed directly to the Town for site and building permits.

The project area, formerly known as the Lake Erie Industrial Park, was the subject of a previous SEQR review that included the preparation of a Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS). The SEQR process for this project was completed in 1999. In accordance with the Town of Hamburg Pre-Permitted Site Incentive Law, pre-permitted site designation for properties previously reviewed under SEQR requires the preparation of a Supplemental GEIS.

The project is located on Bayview Road, east of NYS Route 5, in the Town of Hamburg, New York.
