Saratoga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Halfmoon Healthcare Campus will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposed construction of the first phase of the Halfmoon Healthcare Campus located on the south side of Route 146, approximately 1.2 miles west of the intersection of Route 146 and Route 236 in the town of Halfmoon, New York. Phase 1 activities will include construction of a 2 story assisted living/memory care facility with associated roads, parking lots and stormwater management facilities. Construction of the facility will result in the unavoidable disturbance of 0.46 ± acres of wetlands which will be mitigated on-site through the enhancement of a 2.05 ± acre forested wetland to the east of the proposed facility. The proposed mitigation area is an existing scrub-shrub upland area located immediately adjacent to a NYS DEC regulated wetland. The existing wetland is currently overrun with invasive common reed (Phragmites australis). The mitigation plan involves mowing the area, removing the phragmites by hand and replanting the area with tree saplings and shrubs harvested from the adjacent upland area to provide shade for the wetland and inhibit phragmites growth.
