Project Description: The action involves expansion of an existing commercial sand and gravel extraction having a currently approved Life of Mine area of 7.69 acres. The approved Life of Mine area is to be expanded by 4.67 acres for a total Life of Mine area of 12.36 acres. Operations are to continue as currently permitted which are: an average of 1,200 cubic yards (maximum 2,000 cubic yards) of material are to be extracted annually; up to five dump truck loads of material are to depart the project site on a daily basis; the extraction is to operate annually from April through December, Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; material is to be excavated with a front end loader; material processing is to include use of a non-motorized screening plant only, and; reclamation is to occur as mining reaches Life of Mine limits on an on-going basis. The project will also require a mining permit from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.


Positive Declaration And Public Scoping

Fulton County - The City of Gloversville Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on March 6, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall, Frontage Road, Gloversville, NY. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. would like to construct a 186,979 sq. ft. Supercenter along South Kingsboro Avenue Extension in the City of Gloversville. The proposed project will be constructed on a 40-acre parcel owned by the Curtain Group, LP. The project will involve the creation of 890 parking spaces, the extension of municipal water and sewer services, the extension of public utilities, the construction of stormwater infrastructure and a wetlands mitigation area. Based on the nature of the project, the proposed Supercenter will also require multiple approvals and actions from other local agencies, as well as State and federal permits.
