  3. 3. Fee Information Total Fee Amount: $0.00 Existing Use Agricultural fairground Planned Use The applicant is requesting the Conservation Commission consider an Amendment to the Final Order of Conditions for the redevelopment of the Three County Fairground. This amendment seeks to clarify the limits of work for Phase 1 and does not significantly change the project. While the overall Master Plan that was approved by the Commission on April 5, 2010 with the issuance of a Final Order of Conditions (MassDEP File #246-0635) has not changed, the specific scope of work defined as Phase 1 on the plans has changed. The Final Order of Conditions (Book 10153, Pg. 78) references the following approved plans and documents as the most recent submission: 1. Notice oflntent Plans, dated 3/5/2010 2. Stormwater Permit Plans and Report-Phase 1, dated 3/18/2010 3. Phasing Plan, dated 3/9/2010 The overall Notice oflntent Plans as indicated above and approved by the Commission have not changed substantially. The limit of work delineated on the Stormwater Permit Plans and Report-Phase 1, have been modified slightly after further consideration of project feasibility, estimated construction sequencing and other permitting authorities. The expanded scope of work is limited to items presented in the approved Notice oflntent Plans referenced above. This amendment requests the inclusion of the following site related items to Phase 1: A. The relocation of 2 existing show rings which are currently located within the work area for the proposed barns. B. The addition of the promenade located to the south and west of the proposed barns. C. The installation of additional stormwater management infrastructure. 210 Main St., Rm. 11, City Hall, Northampton, MA 01060 (413) 587-1262
  4. 4. D. The addition of other site utilities such as but not limited to: water line improvements, sanitary services, site electrical, and site lighting. E. Additional shed and outbuilding demolition. F. Expansion of the trap rock gravel surfacing in the northeast corner of the site. The procedures for amending a Final Order of Conditions as described in the DEP Wetlands Program Policy 85-4 allow for an amendment to a Final Order if the Commission considers such factors as; 1) Whether the project purpose and scope has changed, 2) Whether the project meets relevant performance standards, and 3) Whether the project has potential for adverse impacts to protected statutory interests. In regards to item 1; the overall purpose of the project has not changed. Any changes are limited to the scope of work as shown in the 3/18/2010 Stormwater Permit Plans. All additional work currently proposed for Phase 1 is consistent with the approved Notice oflntent Plans dated 3/5/2010. The amended Phase 1 project meets all relevant performance standards. A Northampton Stormwater Management Permit was issued on 11/8/2010 for all work currently depicted for Phase 1 satisfying item 2. In addition, a Zoning Board of Appeals finding was granted and the project, as currently shown, received unanimous approval by the Planning Board on 11/10/2010. Lastly, no adverse impacts to protected interests will be associated with the proposed Phase 1 project. All stormwater management improvements are in compliance with current DEP and City standards. Additional stormwater infrastructure has been proposed to expand improvement of the existing stormwater drainage system and to increase the overall compensatory flood storage volumes for Phase 1.
