Project Description: "Trailside at Fawn Ridge," a proposed 43-lot residential subdivision of 180 acres partially located within the Village of Lake Placid creating 40 building lots and 3 vacant lots. The building lots will range in size from approximately 1± acre to 8± acres with one single family dwelling proposed for each lot. Of the 40 proposed building lots, 34 are located within an area classified as Moderate Intensity Use, and 6 are located within an area classified as Rural Use on the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan Map. All of the proposed Moderate Intensity Use lots and one of the Rural Use lots will connect to the municipal wastewater system. The remaining 5 proposed Rural Use lots will be served by individual on-site wastewater treatment systems. All but one of the proposed lots will be served by the municipal water system and approximately 1.35 miles of new subdivision roads. One building lot in Rural Use will be served by an individual well water supply and be accessed directly from Carolyn Road. The project also includes storm water infrastructure, utility installations, and creation of a Homeowners Association. One open space lot containing approximately 48 acres in both Moderate Intensity Use and Rural Use land use areas is proposed, and will be managed by a Homeowners Association for aesthetic and recreational purposes. Also, two vacant lots will be created with no development proposed. The vacant lots will not be subject to the Homeowners Association

Project Description: The project involves a new 12.7± acre mineral extraction for the mining of consolidated bedrock (aka hard rock and ledge rock) at an approved sand and gravel mine authorized by Permit 1998-0248. Crushed granular material, stone fill and rock rip rap will be produced and sold commercially. Access to the mine will be over an existing sand and gravel mine road off Pepper Hollow Road. The mine will operate from March 1 through December 31, from 7am to 6pm Monday through Friday, and 8am to 2pm Saturdays. Blasting will be restricted to Monday through Friday from 10am to 3pm. Processing of materials, such as screening and crushing, will take place Monday through Friday during normal operating hours and there will not be any processing on Saturdays. The mine will not operate on Sundays or holidays. The mine will be undertaken in six phases and anticipated trucking will involve approximately 16 to 20 loaded trucks leaving the site daily. A maximum of 50,000 tons of material will be mined annually.
