Negative Declaration

Saratoga County - The Historic Hudson-Hoosic Rivers Partnership, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Historic Hudson-Hoosic Rivers Partnership Visitor Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Historic Hudson-Hoosic Rivers Partnership (Partnership) to construct a Visitor Center on the former site of the Town of Saratoga Town Hall in the Village of Schuylerville. Funding for this project is being provided through the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) and the Natural Heritage Trust (NHT). The subject action consists of the demolition and removal of the former Town Hall Building, a one story frame structure and associated site clean up. Existing fill on site will be regraded to fill the cellar hole and provide a suitable building site. Demolition will be undertaken by the Town of Saratoga. The Partnership proposes constructing a two story visitor center consistent in scope and scale with a residential structure on the same site. Existing utilities, driveways and parking areas will support this structure and its intended use. Three accessible parking places will be provided on site with additional parking in adjacent Fort Hardy Park. Prior to the construction the property will be conveyed to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC). A management agreement between the Partnership and NYS DEC will be developed providing for the construction and management of the Visitor Center by the Partnership.

The project is located at 12 Spring Street in the Village of Schuylerville, New York.

Warren County - The Town of Lake George Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NYS Route 9 Gateway Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal for streetscape improvements and stormwater treatment measures along an approximately 1/2 mile stretch of NYS Route 9 from the intersection with West Brook Road south to Birch Avenue in the Town of Lake George, New York. Specific improvements to this corridor will include:

  • Installation of permeable concrete sidewalks and conversion to a curb section.
  • Raised landscaped center median with bio retention/infiltration measures.
  • Green infrastructure measures to address stormwater.
  • Access management measures to improve pedestrian and vehicle safety.

The Project will incorporate green infrastructure/alternative stormwater management features including disconnected curbs, bio-retention basins, and bio-swales to intercept and treat existing stormwater flows, reduce hard surfacing (eliminating hardscape), and incorporate permeable pavements. These measures will reduce stormwater flows and enhance water quality treatment.

Notice of Acceptance of Final SEIS

Essex County - The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Whiteface Mountain Ski Center. The Final SEIS is available on request from the contacts listed below and on line at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/90459.html.

The Olympic Regional Development Authority, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) and the Adirondack Park Agency (APA), has completed a Final Amendment and Supplemental EIS for the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center. The 2013 Whiteface Mountain Ski Center Amendment and Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) is a result of a request by Essex County, New York for the installation of a Public Safety Radio Communications System at the Little Whiteface Ski Patrol Building. This involves the redevelopment of the existing Ski Patrol Building and the installation of antenna systems for a public safety radio communication system and improved Ski Patrol Services. This involves approximately 0.03 acres of ground cover being impacted. The management action has been analyzed for potential impacts to both natural and human resources.

The most recent update to the Unit Management Plan (UMP)/EIS was approved and accepted on July 4, 2004, with an Amendment and SEIS approved and accepted on October 4, 2006. This amendment is identified as the 2013 Unit Management Plan Amendment and SEIS to the 2004 Unit Management Plan and SEIS.

The project is located in the Town of Wilmington, New York.
