RV park, campground proposed for Mayfield

JOHNSTOWN — A proposed RV park and campground in Mayfield for next year was discussed recently by Fulton County officials.

In his monthly activities report to the Board of Supervisors’ Public Works Committee, county Planning Director Scott Henze said he recently listened to a presentation about a proposed “large concept campground” called the Woods Hollow Campground in the town of Mayfield.

“It’s kind of interesting,” Henze said. “It’s a pretty neat concept.”

Henze said the recreational vehicle park and campground is being proposed by Lane Winney along the north side of Route 30, south of Woods Hollow Road.

He said that given all the approvals necessary for the project from the state Department of Health, state Department of Environmental Conservation, Adirondack Park Agency, and Hudson River-Black River Regulating District, construction on the project isn’t expected until spring 2022.

Henze said the principals for the project are working with the Fulton County Center for Regional Growth.

Elsewhere in his report, Henze said a public hearing was held on SunEast Limestone Solar’s special use permit application for a 20-megawatt solar farm project along Bishop Road in the town of Perth. James Skiff is doing the project. Henze said planners are still working with applicants on the final landscaping proposal, asking for additional plantings before a determination of significance being issued for the State Environmental Quality Review process.

In another Perth solar project, Henze told supervisors that his office continued reviewing Active Solar LLC’s solar farm project along Route 30 on lands owned by Adelbert Pooler. Additional information was requested of the applicant and a hearing is set for 6 p.m. March 15.

Henze said a feasibility study for the Routes 30/30A sewer project is 95 percent complete. He said it is expected to be presented by engineer Travis Mitchell of Environmental Design Partnership of Clifton Park at the next Public Works Committee meeting at 1 p.m. March 29.

A timeframe was presented for the estimated $105,000 Fulton County Airport’s main apron reconstruction project.

“As of today, there’s been seven bid sets to potential bidders,” Henze said. “That’s a good sign.”

Bids are due to be opened publicly March 17, with the awarding of a contract on April 12.

The Fulton County Planning Department has worked with Passero Associates — a county consultant — taking multiple drone images to aid in the design process. Henze also previously met with Passero at the Route 67 airport to go over the airport layout and examine sewer grates and manholes.
