ENB - Region 7 Notices 7/3/2012

Negative Declaration

Cayuga County - Cayuga County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Music Theater Festival, Inc. 2012 Scenery Production Facility Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The proposed action under consideration is a minor expansion of an existing facility for the production of sets and theatrical props for local theater productions associated with the Musical Theater Festival, Inc., and the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, Inc. (a musical theater venue located within the adjacent Emerson Park complex). The action involves the expansion of the existing Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, Inc. scenery prop and production facility through the addition of an enclosed, heated structure for the year-round production of theatrical sets and props within an approximate 11,400 square foot footprint. The proposed 11,400 square foot production facility will be constructed adjacent to the existing theatrical production facilities which will allow production to be coordinated between the new and existing facilities. This location is adjacent to the Cayuga County Parks and Recreation Department's administrative offices and maintenance facility and faces the public open space, soccer field and "disc golf course" which are within the larger complex of County-owned Emerson Park grounds which straddle both sides of East Lake Road (NYS Route 38A). The proposed facility will be located immediately adjacent to the similar facility and integrated into existing operations. Taken as whole, these facilities blend in with the Cayuga County Park Administration and Maintenance Facility. The proposed structure will be clustered next to the existing facilities on land that is not now used for open space (being so close to the existing buildings and park maintenance operations) and will not eliminate any usable open space or impact the quality or use of remaining open space that will continue to be available within the park. As a minor structure, any storm water falling on the roof will be directed to the open ground surrounding the facility and will drain into the Park's stormwater retention and treatment system, which is just east-north-east of the building site. There will be no significant change to storm drainage patterns. The project is located at 6912 East Lake Road in Auburn, New York.

The project is located along Lockhaven Beach Road, which is south of Lake Ontario in the Town Scriba, New York.
