Conditioned Negative Declaration

Putnam County - The Town of Southeast Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Weston Chase Subdivision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. A 30-day public comment period commences with this notice. The applicant, 360 Turk Hill Corp., proposes to subdivide an approximately 68-acre property located at the intersection of Turk Hill Road and County Route 124 (Deans Corner Road) into twelve (12) lots and improve same with roadways, driveways, dwellings, and sub-surface sewage disposal systems.

The following conditions will mitigate the impacts identified as a result of the project:

1) to mitigate disturbance to the western wetland from construction of the detention basin, the applicant will provide additional herbaceous and woody wetland plantings (beyond any plantings required as per the New York State Stormwater Design Manual for a wet pond) in the vicinity of the area disturbed by creation of the detention basin and its outfall to provide species diversity and enhanced wildlife habitat; and

2) to further protect the wetland from future disturbance the applicant will create, and will file all necessary legal documentation with the Town of Southeast and Putnam County, a 50-foot wide conservation easement measured from the eastern edge of the delineated wetland within which no improvements can be made (subject to approval of the proposed stormwater pollution prevention plan and final subdivision approval) and within which existing vegetation would be allowed to remain and continue to grow in a natural condition and within which no herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or other common lawn and garden chemicals will be applied.
