ENB - Region 9 Notices 10/23/2013

Negative Declaration

Niagara County - The Town of Somerset, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Lake Road Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the rezoning of approximately 179 ± acres of land on Lake Road to a new PUD designation. The project includes a 10 ± acre site for the existing historical society/welcome center, which would be potentially subdivided and transferred to the Town; a 105 ± acre area for development of the Somerset Lakeshore Business Park, which would include buildings, parking, stormwater management and associated facilities. This area also includes two sub-areas for special road frontage development; a 31 ± acre area for potential waterfront enhanced or dependent facilities; a 31 ± acre for open space and environmental preservation; and a 2 ± acre area for the buffering of the historical/welcome center site. Access to the Business Park is proposed via an access drive from Lake Road. Another access to Lake Road, as well as other means of egress via the Upstate New York Power Producers Power plant driveway can also potentially be added. A potential railroad siding could be constructed from the existing railroad spur located on the power plant site to this site. The project is located at 7725 Lake Road in the Town of Somerset, New York.
