Negative Declaration

Cayuga County - The Village of Union Springs, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Village of Union Springs Local Waterfront Revitalization Program and Associated Local Laws will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) for designated areas adjacent to the Cayuga Lake shoreline. The LWRP is a locally prepared, comprehensive land and water use plan that addresses issues relevant to the protection of community character, improved public access and recreation, environmental resource protection, protection and enhancement of water quality, flooding and erosion, and scenic and historic resources. This action also includes adoption of a LWRP Consistency Review Law to establish procedures for determining if proposed actions, as defined in the law, to be directly undertaken, funded or permitted within the designated Local Waterfront Revitalization Area are consistent with the policies set forth in the Village of Union Springs LWRP; as well as additional new local laws to further support said policies. These additional local laws include amendments to the zoning law to include historic preservation considerations during site plan review, a dock and mooring law; and a stormwater management, erosion, and sediment control law. The project is located on the waterfront areas of Cayuga Lake in the Village of Union Springs, New York.
