Amendments of the Final Freshwater Wetlands Maps for Westchester County

Subsequent to the promulgation of the final Freshwater Wetlands Maps for Westchester County on October 7, 1987, DEC Region 3 Staff found several inaccuracies affecting Maps 1-8 and 10-11 of 14. Having fully investigated these sites, Staff sent notice of the proposed amendments to the affected landowners and published notice in local newspapers and in the ENB. A legislative public hearing was held on December 3, 2003 and a public comment period was provided through April 1, 2004. Upon review of Staff's findings and recommendations relative to this matter, the Commissioner was satisfied that Staff appropriately responded to all oral and written comments on the proposed amendments, and that Staff's recommendations were consistent with the requirements of the Freshwater Wetlands Act and supported by the record. The Commissioner ordered that amendments be made to the final wetlands maps for Westchester County Maps 1-8 and 10-11 of 14, effective July 28, 2004. A copy of the amended final maps will be filed with the office of the clerk of each affected local government and in the Department's Region 3 office.
