Public Notice

Region 9 - Notice is hereby given to Article 24 (Freshwater Wetlands Act) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and the Freshwater Wetlands Mapping and Classification Regulations ( 6 NYCRR Part 664) that NYSDEC proposes an amendment to Maps 3, 4, 9 and 13 of 31 of the Erie County Freshwater Wetlands Maps filed on September 10, 1986. NYSDEC proposes to add five wetlands: LA-16, OP-9, OP-10, TE-33 and TE-34. NYSDEC also proposes to adjust the boundaries of five wetlands: CC-27, TE-17, TE-20, TE-21 and TE-22. It is proposed that wetlands TE-17, TE-20 and TE-21 be combined to form one wetland, TE-17, and revise the classification from Class II to Class I.

Maps showing the proposed revisions are available at the Clerk’s Office in the village, city, town and county where the change is taking place, as well as at the Region 9 Buffalo Office at the address listed below. The wetland boundaries are shown on the most recent version of NYSDOT 7˝ quadrangle map to show proximity to mapped features.

You may submit comments on the accuracy of the proposed amendment in writing to the contact listed below, through November 27, 2002. If a public hearing will be held, further public notice will be given.

Pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 664, once the announcement of a proposed amendment has been made, no activity subject to regulation under the Freshwater Wetlands Act may be initiated without a permit from NYSDEC within the area that is the subject of the proposal (including the 100 foot wetland adjacent area) until the Commissioner has either amended the map or denied the amendment.
