Onondaga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Fey Pit Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 16.16 acre sand and gravel mine within a 110 acre parcel east of Otisco Valley Road, approximately 3168 feet south of Slate Hill Road in the towns of Marcellus and Otisco, New York. Presently this location is being mined on an approved 4.4 acre Life of Mine. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction site including excavation of unconsolidated sand and gravel reserves using a front end loader and backhoe. All mining will occur above the water table and the mine floor elevation will be 860 feet AMSL. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with a portable screener. Maximum processing rates for the screening operation will not exceeded 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the 16.16 acre site to open meadows and agriculture fields. Upland reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and reseeding with guidance from Onondaga County Soil and Water Conservation District. The reviewed Life-of-Mine (LOM) area is 16.16 acre.

Tompkins County - The Town of Lansing Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Updates and Amendments to the Land Use Ordinance will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves amendments to the Town of Lansing's Land Use Ordinance generally focusing upon updating definitions, amending allowed uses per district to more closely comport with the Town's existing Comprehensive Plan, to fix certain long-standing typographical errors, and to eliminate numerous redundancies referencing site plan review and the needless overlapping of special permitting and site plan reviews where the special permit requirements were already a part of site planning reviews. More specifically, such changes also included adding clarification relative to a Code Officers authority to determine whether a use was allowed, implementing changes to comport with updated NYS Building Codes, creating a zoning permit system for certain ministerial reviews relating to mother-in-law apartments, roadside stands, storage containers, and other adjudged low-impact uses that do not necessitate full site plan review, distinguishing between utility and non-utility applications as pertain to energy generation, such as solar and wind facilities, adding provisions to more fully implement and integrate storm water requirements, updating lighting rules to reference Dark Sky standards, and eliminating the attached junk storage and mobile home ordinances as set forth in prior appendices as they had both already been superseded by stand-alone local laws. The project is located on all lands in the incorporated Town of Lansing, New York, but excluding the Village of Lansing.
