For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: December 6, 2012

Project Description: Three-lot residential subdivision crating: a vacant 11.89±-acre lot, a vacant 7.07±-acre lot and a 13.67±-acre lot improved with an existing single family dwelling. The construction of a single family dwelling with on-site wastewater treatment system and water supply is proposed on each of the vacant lots. Access to the vacant lots will be from Pilot Knob Road over an existing logging road, which will be improved and graded (in some areas). The access road extends approximately 2,000± ft. uphill from Pilot Knob Road, and crosses slopes close to 12% in some areas. Significant stormwater management mitigation is proposed in relation to the access road and driveway improvements.


Negative Declaration

Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit 2012G-3 Silvicultural Treatments that Meet Jurisdictional Clearcutting Thresholds will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The APA recognizes that 9 NYCRR §573.7 strictly defines clearcutting in relation to the remaining basal area amount of thirty square feet per acre. Correspondingly, other legitimate silvicultural cutting prescriptions, such as shelterwood removal cuts, can also be defined as clearcuts because they lower the residual basal area below the threshold referenced in the APA regulation. The strict definition of all silvicultural prescriptions as clearcuts based solely on a basal area threshold provides no incentive to complete other legitimate silvicultural prescriptions, including shelterwood cuts. The disincentive leads to "high grading", dominance by undesirable species, reduction in biodiversity and unhealthy forest conditions. This proposed General Permit pursuant to the Adirondack Park Agency Act (Executive Law Article 27) and 9 NYCRR Part 573 would authorize a simplified APA approval process for implementing silvicultural treatments that meet jurisdictional clearcutting thresholds as part of a forest management plan. The draft general permit and APA Order are available for public review at the APA's office in Ray Brook or on the APA's web site: www.apa.ny.gov.

The project is located in all or portions of the following Counties of New York State within the Adirondack Park: St. Lawrence, Essex, Oneida, Lewis, Clinton, Franklin, Herkimer, Hamilton, Warren, Washington, Saratoga and Fulton.

Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit 2008-G1B Management of Aquatic Invasive Species Using Benthic Barriers and Hand Harvesting Techniques will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Pursuant to ECL Article 24 and '809(13)(e) of the Adirondack Park Agency Act and 9 NYCRR §572.23, this amended general permit would authorize the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), Lake George Park Commission (LGPC), Hudson River-Black River Regulating District (HRBRRD), Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP), local municipalities, and qualified lake associations or other qualified organizations, certified lake managers, and experienced lake managers subject to use of hand harvesting and benthic barriers to eradicate or reduce population numbers or otherwise control the growth and spread of certain aquatic invasive species in wetlands throughout the Adirondack Park. All management attempts and methods shall be limited to: Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), curlyleaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus), water chestnut (Trapa natans), yellow floating heart (Nymphoides peltata), and European frog-bit (Hydrocharis morsus-ranae), fanwort (Cabomba caroliniana), Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea) and those other invasive species of concern identified by the APA. The draft general permit and APA Order are available for public review at the APA's office in Ray Brook or on the APA's web site: http://www.apa.ny.gov/.

Notice of Acceptance of Final SEIS

Franklin County - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as co-lead agencies, have accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Second Pond Boat Launch Reclassification Action and Unit Management Plan Approval. The Final SEIS is available from the APA Headquarters, Route 86, Ray Brook, NY; the NYS DEC Headquarters, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY and on line at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/82694.html.

The Final SEIS supplements the Final Generic Unit Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Campgrounds and Day-Use Areas and the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement Guidelines for Amending the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan. The NYS DEC proposes a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Second Pond Boat Launch Intensive Use Area. This plan proposes the reconstruction of the boat launch and parking area. The APA proposes amendments of the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan (SLMP) to reclassify 5.6 acres of Wilderness to Intensive Use and 6.8 acres of Intensive Use to Wilderness based on NYS DEC recommendations developed in the Second Pond Intensive Use Area UMP. The reclassification, because it is a revision to the SLMP, requires approval by the Governor of New York State. Subsequent to the Governor's approval of the reclassification, the NYS DEC Commissioner would approve the final UMP.

The project is located on New York State Route 3 in the Town of Harrietstown, New York.
