Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Grandpa's Gravel Pit Permit Modification will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to increase the approved depth of mining at an existing 28.6 acre mine sand and gravel mine. The proposed final floor elevation is 402 feet above MSL, which would be approximately 30 feet deeper than what is currently approved. A drag line would be used to extract material below ground water. The addition of a crusher and wash plant are also being proposed as new operations. Screening is currently approved under the existing permit. A perimeter berm would be constructed along the southern most mining limit. A new 19.4 acre pond is being proposed under the revised reclamation plan. As a result of these changes, an increase in truck traffic from approximately 2 trips per hour to a rate of approximately 5-10 trips per hour (with no more than 18 trips per hour) is anticipated. No changes in traffic patterns or the currently approved Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (non-holiday) operating schedule are proposed. The project is located on the west side of South Centenary Road in the Town of Sodus, New York.

Positive Declaration

Ontario County - The Town of South Bristol Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Everwilde Inn and Spa may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The Everwilde Inn and Spa is an approximately 80,000 square foot inn and spa (95,000 square foot total) proposed for an approximately 45.7 acre site bound by Seneca Point Road and the Canandaigua Lake shoreline. The inn is proposed to offer 50 rooms and an approximately 18,000 square foot spa. The facility will also contain a 75 seat restaurant and bar, a 25 seat cafe/bakery and a reception area with 2 rooms (300 maximum seating). The main facility will be located near the Seneca Point Road frontage with an approximately 12 foot wide cart path following an existing dirt road alignment to a covered seating area and restroom facilities located above the Canandaigua lake shoreline. A walkway and updated stair system is proposed to provide pedestrian access to the shoreline area, which is proposed to contain a swim platform and a total of 10 boat slips provided on 4 open docks and 1 boathouse.

The proposed facility will further the growth of the tourist economy of the area, providing a vacation and day trip destination serving the local population and surrounding region. Its presence will complement the Bristol Harbour Resort, whose golf course is located immediately across Seneca Point Road from the proposed Everwilde site.

The project is located on Seneca Point Road at its intersection with Coye Road in the Town of South Bristol, New York.
