A proposed solar array project in the town of Ellicott has received its approval from the town’s zoning board of appeals.
The board formally issued a negative declaration required by the State Environmental Quality Review Act during a meeting last week and approved a site plan to Storke Renewables LLC.
The Springwater, New York-based company is looking to place solar panels on 50 acres of a 96.5-acre parcel of land at 3365 N. Main St. Ext. and near the Chautauqua County-Jamestown Airport.
The town has been the lead agency for the required SEQR process. Before issuing a declaration, the board had to thoroughly review the company’s environmental assessment form — or EAF — which describes the proposed action, its location, its purpose and its potential impacts on the environment.
