Negative Declaration

Niagara County - The Town of Wheatfield Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Waterfront Revitalization Program will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption by the Town of Wheatfield for a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) for designated areas adjacent to the Niagara River and Tonawanda Creek shorelines. The LWRP is a locally prepared, comprehensive land and water use plan that addresses issues relevant to the protection of community character, improved public access and recreation, environmental resource protection, protection and enhancement of water quality, flooding and erosion, and scenic and historic resources.

This action also includes adoption of LWRP Consistency Review Law to establish procedures for determining if proposed actions, as defined in the law, to be directly undertaken, funded or permitted within the designated Local Waterfront Revitalization Area are consistent with the policies set forth in the Town of Wheatfield LWRP, as well as zoning changes along the Niagara River shoreline to bring local zoning into conformance with proposed land uses identified in the LWRP document.

The project is located on the Niagara River and Tonawanda Creek shorelines in the Town of Wheatfield, New York.
