Public Notice

Amendments Completed on the Final Freshwater Wetlands Maps for Erie County:

Subsequent to the promulgation of the final Freshwater Wetlands Maps for Erie County in 1986, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Staff found inaccuracies affecting Erie County Maps 9, 10, 13 and 14 of 31. Having fully investigated these sites, NYS DEC Staff sent notice of the proposed amendments to the affected landowners and local municipal officials, and published notice in local newspapers and in the ENB. NYS DEC Staff reviewed public comments received and no public hearing was held. Upon review of NYS DEC Staff's findings and recommendations relative to this matter, the NYS DEC Commissioner was satisfied that NYS DEC Staff appropriately responded to all oral and written comments on the proposed amendments, and that NYS DEC Staff's recommendations were consistent with the requirements of the Freshwater Wetlands Act and supported by the record.

The NYS DEC Commissioner ordered that the Erie County Maps be amended to add Class II wetlands LA-18 and LA-19 to Map 9; and to add Class I wetland LA-17 to Maps 9, 10, 13 and 14, effective January 28, 2015. A copy of the final maps will be filed with the office of the clerk of each affected local government and in the NYS DEC Region 9 Office, Buffalo, NY.
