Northville subdivision up for APA decision

RAY BROOK — A proposed 1,169-acre subdivision near Northville will be up for discussion and a decision as the state Adirondack Park Agency board holds its monthly meeting on Thursday and Friday, March 11 and 12.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public is asked to watch the meeting by live webcast rather than in person. Go to www.apa.ny.gov for remote access information.

This month’s meeting will be on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. It begins at noon Thursday with the full board convened for APA Executive Director Terry Martino’s monthly report.

Immediately afterward, the agency’s Regulatory Programs Committee will consider approval of the subdivision in the Fulton County towns of Northampton and Mayfield. New York Land and Lakes Development LLC has proposed to subdivide 1,169 acres of land to create 34 lots, of which 32 would be building lots. Thirty new single-family dwellings would be built in the land area classified as Rural Use, and two new single-family dwellings are proposed for the land classified as the more restrictive Resource Management. The project site includes Woodward Lake, a 100-acre impounded waterbody. The project sponsor also proposes to extinguish all 37 of the remaining principal building rights associated with the project site.

On Friday at 9:30 a.m., the State Land Committee will be briefed by staff of the state Department of Environmental Conservation and APA on joint efforts ongoing related to visitor use management and wildlands monitoring efforts.

At 10:45 a.m., the Regulatory Programs Committee will reconvene for a follow-up discussion and then act on the proposed subdivision.

At 11:30 a.m., the full board will convene to take any necessary actions and hear member and Local Government Review Board comment.

Meeting materials can be downloaded from the APA website at https://www.apa.ny.gov/Mailing/2021/03/index.htm. Anyone who wishes to submit a general comment, in accordance with agency meeting public comment policy, can send it by email to AgencyMeeting.PublicComment@apa.ny.gov.
