Lancaster, NY 14075
Application ID: 9-1452-00246/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Project is Located: Lancaster, Erie County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to construct a multi-use development (mixed housing types and commercial lots) project on an approximately 271 acre site bounded on the north by Pleasant View Drive, the south by Walden Avenue, to the west by the Stony Brook Subdivision and to the east by the Walden Trace Subdivision.  The concept plan for the site includes a north-south spine road and several stormwater retention/detention ponds. The project site contains:  NYS Freshwater Wetland LA-16 (Federal wetland 13/18), a Class II wetland; two additional wetland areas regulated by the U.S. Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District Office;  and Scajaquada Creek, a Class B stream.  The concept plan for full development of the project will impact approximately 0.81 acre of Wetland LA-16 for construction of the spine road, installation of utilities and placement of fill for development of two commercial parcels.  In addition, 5.02 acres within the 100 foot-wide regulated adjacent area of Wetland LA-16 will be impacted for stormwater retention areas, spine road construction, utility installation and the development of the two commercial parcels.  Other Department Permits/Approvals include a Protection of Water Permit for the spine road  culvert crossing of Scajaquada Creek and Water Quality Certification pursuant to the Federal Clean Water Act for impacts associated with federal wetlands.  As mitigation for impacts to state and federal wetlands and state regulated wetland adjacent area, the project sponsor proposes the construction of two shallow wet-meadow/emergent marshes with a combined total of approximately 5.0 acres; creation of an upland buffer area/wildlife corridor connecting Scajaquada Creek and Wetland LA-16; and deeding over to the Town of Lancaster an approximately 42 acre area (containing the undisturbed portion of Wetland LA-16, its' regulated adjacent area and additional non-regulated upland areas) of the property for use as a passive recreational park.  Full development of the site is anticipated to occur within 25 to 35 years.
