ENB - Region 7 Notices 10/16/2013

Negative Declaration

Cortland County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Willet Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the expansion of an existing 12 acre sand and gravel mine to a 24 acre sand and gravel mine on a 32.2 acre parcel owned by T&C Mobile Home Construction Services LLC. Existing mining methods including processing would continue as currently permitted. The expansion does not impact any protected natural resources and it would be reclaimed as meadow and woodland consistent with the current conditions. The project is located at the southwest corner of Landers Corners Road and NYS Route 26 in the Town of Willet, New York.

Madison County - The Village of Cazenovia Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Amendments to the 2008 Village of Cazenovia Comprehensive Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action consists of text amendments to the Village Comprehensive Plan adopted in July of 2008. The amendments are confined to the portion of the plan that discusses the area of the Village currently zoned "Village Edge South", and, in summary, recommend that the zoning provisions for the Village Edge South district be amended to reflect two distinct districts, with the northerly area near Route 20 favoring commercial development, with the lands further to the south being more appropriate for residential development. The amendments also recommend replacing the strict numerical standards for lot development in the district with a more flexible conservation analysis. The project is located in the Village of Cazenovia, New York.

Tompkins County - The Town of Ithaca Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rezoning - Enactment of a Local Law to Amend Chapter 270 of Ithaca Town Code, Titled "Zoning" and Associated Map will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The proposed action is the enactment by the Town of Ithaca Town Board of a local law that would amend the Town of Ithaca Zoning Ordinance and Map to rezone certain lands along and adjacent to Five Mile Drive, Coy Glen Road, Elm Street Extension, Culver Road, Bostwick Road, Poole Road, and Mecklenburg Road in the Town of Ithaca, New York, from Low Density Residential, Medium Density Residential, Agricultural, and Planned Development Zone No. 8 to Conservation Zone. The rezoning affects approximately 717 acres of mostly undeveloped land. This area proposed for rezoning is considered environmentally sensitive and includes natural and scenic resources considered to be of significance to the community as indicated in the Town of Ithaca's Park, Recreation, and Open Space Plan (1997) and Comprehensive Plan (1993), and as summarized in the Conservation Board's draft report entitled "Southwest Glens and Creeks Conservation Zone" (11/05/2012). The Town seeks to minimize environmental impacts to this area from future development by reducing residential densities and encouraging sensitive land use. The Conservation Zone provides a mechanism to achieve this goal by minimizing development to one house per seven acres, and providing additional protective measures and guidelines as outlined in Article V of the Town of Ithaca Code.
