Negative Declaration

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cain Hollow Cottage Construction will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of 15 new full service cottages (25 feet by 33 feet) in the Quaker Area of Allegany State Park near the Cain Hollow Campground Area. The area of disturbance will be approximately 3.8 acres and will require removal of approximately 5 trees. The cottages will be built off of Lagoon Road in two areas that are currently open fields. All utilities will connect to nearby existing lines. The project will require coverage under the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's (NYS DEC) State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities (GP-0-15-002) including the preparation and implementation of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). Erosion controls discussed in the SWPPP will be installed prior to construction and routine inspections will occur to ensure park resources are being protected. No significant natural communities or rare, threatened or endangered species will be impacted by the project. The project is located in the Allegany State Park, Quaker Area near Cain Hollow on Lagoon Road, then Park address is 2373 ASP Route 1 in the Town of Salamanca, New York.
