The Adirondack Park Agency is proposing five new general permits that would allow for an expedited review process for certain regulated activities. The Agency’s Deputy Director (Regulatory Programs) would determine whether the projects as proposed adequately conform to certain eligibility criteria. Only if it is determined that the project is in conformance with that criteria will use of the general permit be allowed. Otherwise, an individual permit application will be required.

In order to utilize this general permit, the Project Sponsor(s) must submit to the Agency a completed and signed application with all required attachments. Agency staff will review the application for completeness, conduct a site visit, and determine if the proposed project meets the terms and conditions of the general permit.

Upon office and/or field verification, the proposed projects must be determined by APA Deputy Director (Regulatory Programs) to:

The projects authorized by this General Permit would be undertaken and completed only as shown on approved project site plans and in accordance with the terms and conditions of a separate General Permit Certificate to be obtained for each project from the Agency. For approvable projects, the Agency anticipates issuing the Certificate within several days of determining the application complete and conducting the field visit. The Certificate would need to be recorded by the Project Sponsor in the County Clerk’s Office.

These general permits would apply throughout the Adirondack Park and would be effective for a period of five years from the date of issuance unless otherwise revoked or modified by the Agency.

These are the five proposed general permits:

GP 2005G-2 “Minor Projects”

This general permit would authorize an expedited permit process for certain limited types of Class A or Class B regional projects subject to Adirondack Park Agency review involving construction of a single family dwelling, installation of a mobile home or undertaking a two-lot subdivision meeting certain eligibility criteria.

The purpose of the two-lot subdivisions must be limited to creation of: i) residential lots containing existing single family dwellings or mobile homes, ii) lots to be developed by new single family dwellings or mobile homes, iii) non-building lots that are deed restricted, or iv) temporary two-lot subdivision into sites.

This general permit application will require professionally prepared site plans and wastewater treatment system plans, if needed, prepared by a professional engineer.

GP 2005G-3 “Replacement of or Installation of Certain New Telecommunications Antennas on Existing Towers or Other Tall Structures”

This general permit would authorize an expedited Agency approval process for: i) replacement of existing or installation of new telecommunications antennas on pre-existing towers and towers previously approved by the Agency where there will be no significant adverse change in the overall visibility of the tower as seen from public viewing points, or ii) new telecommunications antennas on existing structures (e.g., water tanks, buildings) where such antennas are of a design, size, location and color to blend with the existing structures so as to be “substantially invisible.”

This general permit application will require professionally prepared site plan maps and a visual analysis.

GP 2005G-4 “Hunting and Fishing Cabins”

This general permit would authorize an expedited Agency review process for the construction of a greater-than-500 square foot hunting and fishing cabin in a Resource Management area or an otherwise jurisdictional hunting and fishing cabin in conformance with the Agency’s regulatory definition.

For purposes of this general permit, hunting and fishing cabin means a cabin, camp or lean-to or other similar structure designed and used only for occasional occupancy and primarily for hunting and fishing and similar purposes that:

(i) is a one-story structure but may include a sleeping loft;
(ii) is built on posts or piers and does not have a permanent foundation;
(iii) is served by a sanitary pit privy or chemical toilet and does not have a conventional, on-site wastewater treatment system;
(iv) does not have pressurized or indoor plumbing (this prohibition does not preclude a kitchen sink with appropriate grey water leach pit); and
(v) is not connected to any public utilities (such as electric, phone, cable, water or sewer systems).

GP 2005G-5 “Subdivision to Convey Two or More Lots Without Principal Building Rights”

This general permit would authorize an expedited Agency review process for a project to subdivide a lot to convey two or more lots without principal building rights to adjoining landowners for the purpose of enlarging their adjacent lot(s). No principal building rights are to be conveyed.

GP 2005G-6 “Change in Commercial Use”

This general permit would authorize an expedited Agency review process for a project only involving the change from one existing lawful commercial use in a lawful building to a different commercial use (e.g., commercial retail to commercial office). There would be no material change to the exterior of any building or the project site other than installation of signage in full compliance with 9 NYCRR Appendix Q-3.
