Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing to receive comment on a proposed permit from the State Water Control Board (Board) that will allow the filling of non-tidal wetlands and on DEQ’s consideration of the project’s consistency with enforceable policies of the Virginia Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Program on a project in Poquoson, Virginia. The Big Woods Development Company, LLC has applied for a new permit for the Legacy of Poquoson Project located on the south side of Victory Boulevard approximately 0.1 miles west of the intersection of Victory Boulevard and City Hall Avenue The permit will allow the applicant to fill 7.70 acres of non-tidal forested wetlands, 1.87 acres of isolated forested wetlands, 0.26 acres of non-tidal emergent wetlands, and 0.04 acres of open water. The proposed activity would affect 9.87 acres of surface waters. The activity proposed in the permit will affect wetlands surrounding Oxford Run in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. To compensate for the affected area, the applicant would purchase 9.9 wetland credits from the Middle Peninsula Environmental Bank in Gloucester County, and 9.5 wetland credits from the Virginia Aquatic Resources Trust Fund. DEQ’s preliminary decision is to approve the permit. Regarding the Virginia CZM Program, the project qualifies for an individual permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Therefore, DEQ must review the project to determine if it is consistent with the enforceable policies of the Virginia CZM Program. The public comment period begins on March 22, 2017 and ends on May 17, 2017. An information briefing will be held immediately prior to the public hearing beginning at 5:30 p.m.
