The latest with ACR's DEC application
November 12, 2012 - Jessica Collier
As I was writing the story for today about the ACR seeking approval from the planning board for the first phase of the project, I got curious about whether Preserve Associates have moved forward with their application to the DEC yet. They need that approval before they can do anything.
I've been checking in periodically with the DEC, and nothing has been submitted.
I got a copy of the the most recent formal correspondence between the ACR and the DEC, and it lists all the correspondence and meetings DEC has had with ACR representatives.
The ACR submitted updated application materials on Aug. 16, 2010, and received a formal notice of incomplete application on Oct. 18, 2010.
ACR consultants met with the DEC in November and December of that year, then again in June 2011.
The Jan. 10, 2012, followup letter was sent to ACR officials just before the project was approved by the APA.
ACR developers had been hoping to be granted an exemption from newer DEC regulations, which went into effect in 2011. But according to the January 2012 letter from DEC Region 5 Director Robert S. Stegemann to Mike Foxman, the ACR is not eligible for the exemption.
Foxman told the Enterprise in March when the Article 78 was filed that Preserve Associates is working on its DEC permit materials.
"There is a DEC process going on; there are things being prepared," he said, adding that materials for being prepared for DEC permits.
