Erie County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Buffalo Crushed Stone, Inc. proposed Como Park Facility Quarry Modification may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the modification of the Como Park Facility Quarry including mining approximately 39 acres of land between the east and west basins of an existing hard rock quarry. The proposed action would relocate asphalt and rock crushing plants and material stockpiles to other portions of the property to facilitate the mining. The proposal will extend the life of the mine by about 20 years. The project site is located north of Como Park Boulevard, west and north of Indian Road, south of Broadway, and east of Union Road in the Town of Cheektowaga, Erie County.
A draft scoping document will be made available for public review and a public scoping session will be held. Details on the date, time and location of the public scoping session will be announced in the future.
