Applicant: Mauro Polidori
Facility: Falcon's Nest Subdivision
VICTOR-EGYPT Rd @ Woodbrooke Rd
Victor, NY 14564
Application ID: 8-3248-00159/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: Victor, Ontario County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application for re-issuance and modification of a previously issued Freshwater Wetland Permit which allowed the construction of  two stormwater management facilities within the 100 foot wide adjacent area of NYS Freshwater Wetland FA-6 (Class 3 ). The stormwater management facilities are associated with  the development of the Falcon’s Nest Subdivision, a 19-lot subdivision located on westside of Victor Egypt Road, approximately 1200  feet south of intersection of Spring Creek Drive, which is approximately at the Monroe - Ontario County Boundary.  Under the previous permit approval the permittee was to construct a spilt rail fence at the upland boundary of the wetland adjacent area, where this boundary occurred on Building Lots 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, and 19. The fence alignment also coincides with the boundary of a Conservation Easement, where the Town of Victor and the  developer had agreed that the developmental restrictions provided by the conservation easement would prevent any disturbance to the natural condition of the freshwater wetland and wetland adjacent areas located on the building lot properties.

Subsequent to building of the home on Lot 15 (aka 6742 Falcon’s Point), according to approved plans,  the permittee has requested a modification to the placement of the fence and a revision of the conservation easement on this property. Citing minimal space for development of a backyard on this property due to the position of the fence and the conservation easement and the resulting hardship at marketing the home that has been constructed, the permittee has requested that the fence location and conservation easement boundary be changed to coincide with the edge of an existing treeline  to the rear of the house. The portion of the adjacent area which would be allowed to be lawn is a portion of a previous crop field and the lawn development will not result in removal of mature trees or disturbances to the wetland itself. The realignment of the fence location to the edge of the treeline on Lot 15 will also require minor modification to the fence alignment on Lot 14. The resulting modification would allow lawn areas to extend into the adjacent area for an average distance of approximately 45 feet, which would represent approximately 9100  square feet ( 0.22 acre ) of wetland adjacent area which would be converted to lawn and be maintained by property owners. There are no additional changes to the original fence alignment or additional disturbances to the wetland adjacent area on other building lots within the subdivision.
