Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 9:01 am

HOPKINTON -- When the Adirondack Park Agency meets Thursday, they will consider an application to build and run a 44-site campground on the Lake Ozonia Road in Hopkinton.

The Regulatory Programs Committee will consider approval for the proposed new commercial use starting at 9:30. The project involves construction and operation of a campground which would operate from May 15 to Oct. 15 each year.

The project site is a 52.28 acre parcel of land on Lake Ozonia Road in the Town of Hopkinton.

The application is being made by Lydia’s Place, Inc. and Timothy S. Sharlow.

The campground will include water, electric and septic hookups. Wetlands exist on the project site, but none will be filled as a result of the project, according to APA agenda notes.

The agency is considering the plan as a new commercial campground involving fewer than fifty sites in the Resource Management land use area, a Class B regional project requiring an APA permit under Section 810(2)(d)(10) of the Adirondack Park Agency Act.

Agency staff have recommended approval, but with unspecified conditions

The committee meeting will conclude with an informational presentation on accessibility standards and DEC programs to address access for people with disabilities throughout the park.

At 4 p.m., the full agency will assemble to take action as necessary.

The agency meeting will conclude with committee reports, Local Government Review Board, public and member comment.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. People can watch from www.apa.ny.gov by clicking Webcasting from the Contents List.
