Negative Declaration

Franklin County - The New York State Division of Homes and Community Renewal (NYS HCR), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sunrise Acres III will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves two single story residential buildings, one for Seniors and one for Veterans.. The buildings are on separate parcels, but are to be developed together. The Seniors' residential structure will include 12 dwelling units as well as common spaces and supportive functions to enhance quality of life of the residents. The Veterans' residential structure will include 6 dwelling units, as well as common spaces and offices for supportive services providers. Site improvements include asphalt pavement access driveways and parking areas, concrete sidewalks, underground utility infrastructure, grading and drainage improvements and development of lawn and landscaped areas. The proposed building envelope will be concrete footings, insulated concrete forms (foundation/walls), cement board siding, shingle roofing. An emergency generator will be installed within an Acceptable Separation Distance from the sidewalks/parking lot/residential building. The generator will also be contained in a diked berm.

The construction will consist of minimal excavation and will tie-in into the existing municipal water and sewer lines, which is already located on site.

The project will be located at 378 State Route 37 on 3.16 acres in Hogansburg, New York, east of the Akwesasne Housing Authority administration building and the Sunrise Acres Complex on the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe reservation.

Notice of Positive Declaration, Draft Negative Declaration, Acceptance of Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, and Public Hearings (Updated Hearing Locations)

2016 Adirondack Park State Land Classification Proposal

This notice is issued pursuant to the State Environmental Quality Review Act, Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law (SEQRA) and it's implementing regulations at 6 NYCRR Part 617 and 9 NYCRR Part 586. The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed action described below may have a significant adverse impact on the environment. A Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (Draft SEIS) has been completed and accepted for the proposed action described below. Comments are requested and will be accepted by the contact person until December 30, 2016. Comments may be sent by mail, email or fax or may be hand-delivered. Public hearings are scheduled as set out below.

The proposed action involves the classification and reclassification of State lands pursuant to Section 816 of the Adirondack Park Agency Act and the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan (APSLMP). The action involves proposals for State lands in all 12 counties in the Park, including the recently acquired Boreas Ponds Tract. The action includes 33 State land classification proposals totaling approximately 50,827 acres, 13 State land reclassifications totaling an estimated 1,642 acres, and 56 classifications involving map corrections totaling 1,949 acres. In combination, the classifications, reclassifications and map corrections will result in amendments to the APSLMP. The Draft SEIS containing more detailed maps, tables and narrative describing the proposed action is available from the APA contact listed below and on the APA's website at: www.apa.ny.gov.

The classification proposals involve lands in the following counties: Clinton, Essex, Fulton, Franklin, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida, St. Lawrence, Saratoga, Warren and Washington. Detailed maps describing the proposed action are available at the APA offices and on the APA's website at: http://www.apa.ny.gov/.

SEQR Positive Declaration Reasons Supporting this Determination:

The Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement: Guidelines for Amending the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan (1979) (FPEIS) defines classification of any new acquisition of a parcel greater than 5,000 acres to Wilderness, Primitive or Canoe as a Type 1 action under SEQRA. The APA is considering an alternative for classification of the Boreas Ponds Tract (20,543.23 acres) as Wilderness, Primitive or Canoe. Therefore this action is a Type 1 action under the FPEIS and SEQRA.
The APA has determined that at least one of the classification alternatives may have a significant adverse impact on the environment. A Draft SEIS has been prepared in lieu of an EAF, pursuant to 6 NYCRR 617.6(a)(4).

A description of the proposed action is available on the APA's website at: www.apa.ny.gov or at the APA's headquarters in Ray Brook.

SEQR Draft Negative Declaration Reasons Supporting this Determination:

The proposed action includes classification of the MacIntyre East Tract in Towns of Newcomb & North Hudson, Essex County (6,059.54 acres) as Wilderness (4,446.55 acres), Primitive (8.26 acres), and Wild Forest (1,604.74 acres) and the MacIntyre West Tract (7,368.1 acres) as Wilderness (7,365 acres) and Primitive (3.1 acres). This is a Type I Action under the FPEIS because it involves the classification of a new acquisition over 5,000 acres in size to Wilderness. Wilderness is the most environmentally protective classification available, and therefore the proposal has no probable significant adverse environmental impacts.

Public Hearings

The purpose of the hearings is to afford an opportunity for public comment in accordance with the APSLMP and with SEQRA and its implementing regulations, 6 NYCRR Part 617 and 9 NYCRR Part 586. Any person may present an oral or written statement in regard to the proposed classifications. Staff will be available to answer questions prior to the hearing. Written comments will be accepted through December 30, 2016. Public comment hearings have been held since November 9, 2016 and additional hearings will be held according to the following schedule and updated locations:

Notice of Acceptance of Final SGEIS

Saratoga County - The Town of Malta Town Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Town-Wide Generic Environmental Impact Statement. The Final SGEIS is available from the Malta Town Hall, Town Clerk's Office and Planning Office, 2540 State Route 9, Malta, NY and on line at: http://malta-town.org/.

The action involves the evaluation of cumulative impacts of potential growth on the Town's transportation system, agricultural and open space resources, recreation facilities, and utilities. The document is Supplemental EIS (SEIS) to the Town's 2005 Town Wide Generic EIS (TWGEIS) and focuses on those resources and changes that have occurred since the issuance of the 2005 TWGEIS. The Supplemental GEIS provides an update to the growth projections, examines those resource areas impacted by growth and explores any mitigation measures to avoid or minimize adverse impacts on the town's natural and built environment. The Town Board adopted the Final SEIS on June 20, 2016 and, upon further consideration and information from Town staff, elected to amend the Final SEIS. The project is located throughout the Town of Malta, New York.
