Negative Declaration

Broome County - The Town of Chenango Zoning Board of Appeal, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Timber Harvest - 58 Meadowood Lane will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the selective harvest of an 39.26 acre wood lot by logging of approximately 580 marked trees to encourage future growth of the residual stand. There are proposed buffers of 50 foot to the Town of Chenango Right-of-Way to the water tank. There will be a 100 foot buffer to the residential properties on Meadowood Lane, and another 100 foot to the residential properties on Overbrook Drive. This proposed project will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks to complete working Monday - Friday from 7 a .m. to 5 p.m. during the dry summer months. The top branches of the trees will be left to decompose and provide essential nutrients to the soil to help in the growth of the future crop of trees Leaving the tree tops will deter deer from browsing the young seedlings and allow them to reach a height where the deer will no longer be a threat. They will be following the Best Management Practices for timber harvesting and has provided for erosion and sediment control measures to be in place during the harvest. The project is located at 58 Meadowood Lane in Binghamton, Town of Chenango, New York.
