As used in this title, the term “freshwater wetlands”, in addition to its meaning under § 24-0107 (Definitions)section 24-0107 of this article, shall mean “wetlands” as defined in subdivision sixty-eight of section eight hundred two of article twenty-seven of the executive law.


Where the activities otherwise subject to regulation under this article involve freshwater wetlands located within the boundaries of the Adirondack park, the inquiries referred to and the applications provided for in § 24-0703 (Applications for permits)section 24-0703 of this article shall be made to and filed with the Adirondack park agency at its headquarters office, under such regulations and procedures as the Adirondack park agency may promulgate. The Adirondack park agency shall review the application in place of the commissioner or local government as provided in § 24-0705 (Granting permits)section 24-0705 of this article, having due regard for the declaration of policy and statement of findings set forth in this article and for the considerations set forth in subdivision one of § 24-0705 (Granting permits)section 24-0705 of this article. The agency shall in addition determine prior to the granting of any permit that the proposed activity will be consistent with the Adirondack park land use and development plan and would not have an undue adverse impact upon the natural, scenic, aesthetic, ecological, wildlife, historic, recreational or open space resources of the park, taking into account the economic and social or other benefits to be derived from the activity. Any person may seek review of a ruling made solely pursuant to the provisions of this article by the Adirondack park agency pursuant to the provisions of article seventy-eight of the civil practice law and rules.
