Oneida County - The Town of Whitestown, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Site Preparation Contract – Gibson Road Property will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the clearing, grubbing, and grading of a portion of property owned by the Town of Whitestown on Gibson Road. Approximately 14.4 acres of the 49 acres of land owned by the Town will be regarded so that the site will have gentler slopes. Upon completion of this work, the land will be seeded and mulched in order to create grassed open space. A master plan for this property is being developed that will further define the eventual use of this land by the Town. The project is located on Gibson Road, Whitestown (T), immediately adjacent to the southerly border of the existing Town Park.
