Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: Wappinger, Dutchess County
Project Description:
       Elgen Associates, Inc., has applied for a Freshwater Wetlands permit to construct  part of a 5,000 square foot building, 14 of 20 parking spaces and a stormwater basin within the 100-foot wide adjacent area of state regulated freshwater wetland #WF-3 (Class 2).  Elgen Associates received a variance from the Town to move the proposed building 30 feet closer to the Old Route 9 then allowed under local zoning to avoid the wetland adjacent area as much as possible. Sanitary wastes would be piped to the Town's municipal sewer system.  The total disturbance of the adjacent area would be 0.42 acres, but there would be no disturbance of the freshwater wetland itself.
     The 1.33-acre parcel is located on the east side of Old Route 9 between it and NYS Route 9 approximately 0.2 miles south of Middlebush Road (County Rt 93), in the Town of Wappinger, Dutchess County, NY.
