Control of Japanese Knotweed in Wilcox Lake Wild Forest by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC)

The project proposes to treat one stand of Reynoutria japonica (Japanese knotweed) located in an upland forest near the end of Reynolds Road in the Town of Corinth, Saratoga County. Area of Forest Preserve to be treated is approximately 0.03 acres (1300 square feet). The control method selected is to apply glyphosate and imazapyr based herbicides in September in accordance with the "Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices for Control of Terrestrial and Aquatic Invasive Species on Adirondack NYS DEC Managed Lands." A combination of foliar spray and/or stem injection techniques will be utilized as a control agent for this infestation.

Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Saratoga County - The New York State Franchise Oversight Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Saratoga Race Course Redevelopment Plan. The Final EIS is available from the contact listed below; the Saratoga Springs City Hall, Planning Department; the Saratoga Library; the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame and on line at: www.nyra.com.

The action involves a comprehensive development plan by the New York Racing Association (NYRA) to preserve, restore, and enhance the approximately 330 acre historic Saratoga Race Course. The goal of the proposed project is to ensure that the Saratoga Race Course retains its status as a world-class horse racing facility and a key component of local community character and the regional economy. The proposed improvements seek to maintain and emphasize the historic character of the Race Course while responding to changes in the global racing landscape to ensure a sustainable future for racing at Saratoga.

The Race Course season runs annually for 6.5 weeks starting in July and ending in September. The project is not expected to: lengthen the racing season, substantially increase overall attendance or attendance patterns (particularly on peak Saturday), nor substantially change existing non-seasonal use of the facility. The project will likely include construction of new buildings, parking areas, pedestrian facilities including walkways and pavilions, horse paths, planted areas, etc., renovation of existing buildings and facilities, including upgrades to utilities and removal of certain structures. The project will be implemented over an assumed nine year period based on need, schedule and funding. Improvements will be divided between the Frontside and Backstretch portions of the Project Site. The project is located on Union Avenue in the City of Saratoga Springs, New York.
