Negative Declaration

Essex County The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation(NYS DEC), as lead agency has determined that two proposed amendments to the Unit Management Plan for the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center, will not have a significant environmental impact. Comments on the draft plan amendment will be accepted through July 12, 2000. This action involves the NYS DEC adopting three proposed amendments to the 1996 Unit Management Plan Update for the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center under the terms and guidelines established by the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan. The amendments address creation of an additional glade skiing area and designation of existing trails and paths for mountain bike use. The project location is in the Town of Wilmington, Rt. 86, Essex County, New York State Forest Preserve, on lands classified by the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan as Intensive Use (Whiteface Mountain Ski Center).
