Broome County - The Town of Chenango Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law #2 entitled Town of Chenango Road Preservation Law will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of Local Law #2 with the purpose to maintain the safety and general welfare of Town residents by regulating high impact commercial activities that have the potential to adversely impact roads and property. Well maintained roads are important to the economic well being of the Town. Construction, maintenance and operation of high impact commercial endeavors (e.g. timber harvesting, mining, natural gas drilling, wind energy facilities and telecommunication facilities) can be economically beneficial. This Law is not intended to regulate such endeavors, but the intent is to protect the Town roads and property from damage from such endeavors that typically require high frequency use of heavy equipment with heavy loads. It is the intent of this law to insure that the Town's roads are not damaged or harmed to the overall detriment of the Town by a few individual users who utilize the roads in a manner that causes extraordinary deterioration to the roads. The project is located throughout the Town of Chenango, New York.
