APA hearing scheduled on Port Henry proposal

PORT HENRY - The Adirondack Park Agency will hold a legislative public hearing to solicit public comment on Velez Marine LLC's variance application 2010-189.

Velez Marine requests a variance from the shoreline restrictions of section 806 of the Adirondack Park Agency Act.

The public hearing will be Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 11:30 a.m. at the Moriah town office, 38 Park Place, Port Henry. Any person may speak during the public comment period and may submit written comments until the close of the public comment on Dec. 2.

The project site is located on the shoreline of Lake Champlain along Valez Lane in Port Henry on land classified under the Adirondack Park Agency Act as hamlet.

The applicant proposes to re-establish and expand an existing marina. The following proposed activities and structures require variances pursuant to section 806 of the Adirondack Park Agency Act:

The proposed structures require a variance because they are greater than 100 square feet in size, do not comply with the definition of a dock, and/or are not a replacement in kind of the pre-existing structures on the site. The proposed removal of trees requires a variance because it exceeds the cutting allowed within 35 feet of the mean high-water mark under section 806.

The application and supporting information are available for public inspection by contacting Colleen Parker, the assigned environmental program specialist, at 891-4050.

Written public comments on this application can be sent to Parker at P.O. Box 99, Ray Brook 12977.
