PUBLIC NOTICE

NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD THROUGH AUGUST 10, 2015

REGARDING THE PROPOSED LAGO RESORT AND CASINO

 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE, the Town Board for the Town of Tyre (“Town Board”) received on July 16, 2015 a Planned Unit Development (“PUD”) District Application, a modified Development Plan, a modified Site Plan Application, Part 1 of a Full Environmental Assessment Form (“FEAF”) dated March 17, 2014, an updated Part 1 FEAF dated July 15, 2015 reflecting currently proposed project features, and supporting documentation, all related to the proposed Lago Resort and Casino project (the “Project”).  Also, a proposed Local Law No. 5 of 2015 that would amend the Town of Tyre Zoning Law (“Town Zoning Law”) to add certain definitions to the Town Zoning Law and establish a PUD district for the Lago Resort and Casino was introduced to the Town Board at its July 16, 2015 meeting.  The Town Board is also considering a proposed Host Community Agreement relating to the Project that would be entered into between the Town of Tyre and the Project developer. These materials are available for public review at the Seneca Falls Public Library and at the Town of Tyre Town Clerk’s Office at 636 Sutterby Rd., Seneca Falls, NY 13148 during normal business hours.  To the extent practicable, the materials will also be available for review on the Town’s website at www.tyreny.com 

One year ago, the Town Board reviewed the potential environmental impacts associated with the Project pursuant to the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”), as well as the PUD District Application, the proposed Development Plan, and the originally proposed Site Plan for the Project.  On June 12, 2014, the Town Board concluded that the Project would not cause any significant adverse environmental impacts, and accordingly, issued a negative declaration of significance by resolution.  At the same meeting, the Town Board passed separate resolutions which respectively approved the Development Plan, adopted Local Law No. 3 of 2014 to amend the Town Zoning Map to create a PUD district for the Project, approved the Site Plan, and approved the Host Community Agreement (the “June 12, 2014 Approvals”). 

A proceeding was brought under NY CPLR Article 78 to challenge the June 12, 2014 Approvals, and on appeal the court annulled the Town Board’s negative declaration and vacated all related resolutions on the ground that its SEQRA review was incomplete because the Town Board did not formally adopt by resolution the “Reasons Supporting the Determination of Significance in Part 3 of the Full Environmental Assessment Form” as part of its negative declaration.  The Town Board intends to complete the SEQRA review of the Project and review the related applications for approvals before it. 

 

PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE, the Town Board will accept written comments only through August 10, 2015, regarding the Project, including potential environmental impacts of the Project.  Send written comments to the Town Engineer, Adam Cummings, at Barton & Loguidice, D.P.C., 11 Centre Park, Suite 203, Rochester NY 14614, or at the electronic address tyre.public.comments@bartonandloguidice.com.  Written comments must be received by August 10, 2015.
