Notice of Variance Hearing

APA Project NO. 2005-183

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to §806(3)(a) of the Adirondack Park Agency Act (Executive Law, Article 27) and 9 NYCRR Part 576 (Agency Regulations) that the Adirondack Park Agency will hold a public hearing on the application of Rondaxe Lake Association and Scott Cristman for a variance for the replacement of the existing dam on Rondaxe Lake. The variance is required due to the expansion in size of the replacement structure. There is no proposal to change the spillway or lake elevations. Notice of Variance Hearing

The hearing will be held at 1:00 PM on Tuesday May 16, 2006 at the Town of Webb Town Hall, located at 3140 State Route 28, Old Forge, NY 13420.

The staff is recommending approval of the variance and is implementing Section 576.6 of the regulations for a “mini-variance” hearing. One special condition for approval is anticipated: any proposed drawdown of the lake beyond the one foot yearly drawdown will require another Agency permit.

An agency staff member will appear at the hearing solely to receive objections to the granting of the variance. If significant issues are raised, an adjournment will be taken and a more formal hearing will be scheduled.

Any person can make written comment to the Agency about this project and the variance until May 24, 2006. A summary of all comment will be transmitted to Agency Members for their consideration prior to any determination on this project.

Pursuant to § 301(2) of the State Administrative Procedure Act, interpreter services will be made available to deaf persons at no charge upon written request to the Agency made ten days prior to the hearing.

The application file is available for public inspection and copying pursuant to Agency regulations implementing the Freedom of Information Act during normal business hours at Agency offices, New York State Route 86, Ray Brook, New York.
