Project Location: Town of Indian Lake

Project Description: The action involves constructing a 1.9 mile snowmobile trail from a point along NYS Routes 30 and 28 just north of the Northville-Lake Placid trailhead at Lake Durant to the private property boundary in the Hamlet of Blue Mtn. Lake and to build two stream crossing bridges. Construction of this trail is an approved project in the Blue Mtn. Lake Wild Forest UMP, approved in 1995. The trail will connect the hamlets of Indian Lake and Blue Mtn. Lake along the Old Stage Road. The Cedar River Trail and Cedar River Bridge projects, completed in recent years, are parts of the full project. The Old Stage Road trail is the final, westernmost, 2-mile leg of this connection. The UMP proposal made the construction of this leg dependent on the ability of the Town of Indian Lake to get permission of private landowners to construct a public parking area at the Blue Mt. Lake end of the trail. This permission has been obtained. The APA has determined that wetlands permits will not be required and that the project is consistent with Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan. The Department has also completed a Work Plan (in consultation with APA) and a CP-17 approval, and has entered into a Temporary Revocable Permit with the Town of Indian Lake to assist in the construction and maintenance of the trail. Department Operations staff will cut 259 trees and construct the two bridges. The trees are between 3 inches and 6 inches in diameter at breast height. The majority are balsam fir or beech. This notice is in compliance with the policy LF-91-2, Cutting, Removal or Destruction of Trees on Forest Preserve Lands.

Project Title: Stephen Tomb and Peter Gilbertson Spruce Ridge Partners, Inc.

Location: River Road, Town of Johnsburg, Warren County

Comment Period Ends: February 23, 2006

Project Description: The project consists of an eight-lot residential subdivision of 68.87 acres involving wetlands within the recreational river area of the Hudson River. The lots are configured as follows: Lot 1 is 28.31 acres, Lot 2 is 4.83 acres, Lot 3 is 7.27 acres, Lot 4 is 9.50 acres, Lot 5 is 4.21 acres, Lot 6 is 4.79 acres, Lot 7 is 4.57 acres and Lot 8 is 5.38 acres. There is a large wetland complex on Lot 1 that is associated with a stream that is a tributary of the Hudson River. A single family dwelling and related development served by an individual on-site wastewater treatment system and well will be constructed on each lot in the future. Existing overhead utilities will be extended along River Road approximately 1,310 feet to the project site and then extended an additional 1,400 feet through the subdivision once service is requested by individual lot owners. Utilities will be overhead along River Road and underground to individual home sites. The project site is located on a section of River Road that is currently a seasonal use road. When the first dwelling is constructed the Town will make improvements to the section of the existing road leading to and through the project site so that it will be converted to a year round use road. The Warren County Railroad right-of-way adjoins the easterly property boundary of the project site. The Upper Hudson River Railroad conducts scenic railroad tours between North Creek and Raparius seasonally May through October along the rail lines. The majority of the project site is located within the river area of the Hudson River, which is a designated Recreational River pursuant to the New York State Wild, Scenic and Recreational River System Act. There is no new land use or development proposed within 500 feet of the mean high water mark of the Hudson River, within approximately 300 feet of the land of the Warren County Scenic Railway or within 100 feet of the wetlands or streams on the site.
