Negative Declaration

Tioga County - The Tioga County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) , as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Crown Cork & Seal USA, Inc. Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of a 562,000 ± square foot (total build-out) manufacturing facility and warehouse for the production of consumer packaging products, primarily beverage cans. The proposed site is within a short distance (<1 mile) from lnterstate-86, which will allow for convenient access to a major transportation route. It is located on land owned by the Tioga County IDA and designated as a targeted growth area by the Town of Nichols (and Tioga County) as identified in the Town's March 13, 2012 Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plan. Air emission permits are required and will be secured for proposed process emissions. There will be no impacts on onsite wetlands or wetland buffer. Financial incentives are being sought from the Tioga County IDA and New York State. The project is located on Berry Road in the Town of Nichols, New York.
