Negative Declaration

Genesee County - Genesee County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed On-Airport Obstruction Removal and Security Fence Relocation Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Genesee County to clear and grub approximately 15 acres of upland forest located on the Genesee County Airport property that penetrate FAA Title 14 CFR Part 77 surfaces for Runway 10-28. The proposed tree removal area is also located within the Instrument Landing System (ILS) Glide Slope critical area. The project area is located on airport property, north of the Runway 28 end. The tree removal limit will be to the northern property line. As part of this project, the trees will be cut, stumps grubbed out, and soil will be leveled, seeded and mulched such that it can be maintained by municipal mowing equipment. This project will also include removal of approximately 1,400 feet of existing PVC security fence which also passes through the ILS glide slope critical area and replaces it with a proposed eight foot high chain link fence with barbed wire to be located outside the ILS NAVAID facility protection areas. The new chain-link fence will be located within the proposed tree removal area, approximately 15 feet from the edge of the airport property line. Removal of the identified obstructions will provide for the safe, efficient use and preservation of navigable airspace at the Airport. The project is located on East Saile Drive in the Town of Batavia, New York.
