RAY BROOK - The owners of a shoreline property in the village of Lake Placid are asking the state Adirondack Park Agency for a variance for the replacement of a recently demolished building.
The request from One Main on the Lake LLC will be on the agenda at this week's APA board meeting, scheduled to take place Thursday and Friday at the agency's headquarters in Ray Brook.
The replacement building being constructed at 1 Main Street needs a variance because part of the structure will be located within 50 feet of the mean high water mark of Mirror Lake, according to an APA press release. The structure will also need an APA permit because it will exceed 40 feet in height, the agency said.
The project is scheduled to come before the agency's Regulatory Programs Committee, which meets at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.
The committee will also consider a third renewal to allow Adirondack Wind Partners to continue to keep a temporary meteorological monitoring tower in place for two additional years. The tower is located on Pete Gay Mountain in the town of Johnsburg, Warren County. The committee meeting will conclude with a status briefing of APA permits issued to control the invasive Asian clam.
Among other business on the APA agenda on Thursday, executive director Terry Martino will deliver her monthly report at 9 a.m.
At 1 p.m., town of Keene Supervisor William Ferebee will deliver a Community Spotlight presentation, highlighting the successes and challenges facing his community.
At 1:45 p.m. the Park Ecology Committee will hear a presentation from Matthew D. Schlesinger of the New York State Natural Heritage Program about the vulnerability of at-risk species to climate change in New York.
The State Land Committee will be briefed at 2:30 p.m. by APA Deputy Director for Planning James Connolly on the state land classification process. The committee will then hear a second reading of the Watson's East Triangle Unit Management Plan and will consider its compliance to the State Land Master Plan. The committee meeting will conclude with a presentation on the use of GIS for recording public trail use data.
On Friday morning at 9 a.m., the Public Awareness and Communication Committee will hear an informational presentation on aquatic invasive species in Lake George. The Committee will then be updated on the Lake Champlain Basin Program.
At 11 a.m., the Full Agency will assemble to take action as necessary. The meeting will conclude with committee reports, public and member comment.
The meeting will be webcast live at www.apa.ny.gov. Meeting materials are available for download from the agency's website.
