Final Notice for Public Review of a Proposal to Support Activity in the 100 Year Floodplain and Wetland
Florida Department of Economic Opportunity; 107 E. Madison St. MSC-400; Tallahassee, FL 32399; 850-717-8411
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals
This is to give notice that the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential effect the Rebuild Florida Housing Repair and Replacement Program’s activity in the floodplain and/or wetland will have on the environment.
DEO has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values. The alternatives were: (i) to proceed with the housing rehabilitation of affected homes located within Alachua County, Baker County, Bradford County (exclude zip code 32091), Charlotte County, Citrus County, Columbia County, DeSoto County (exclude zip code 34266), Dixie County, Flagler County (exclude zip code 32136), Gilchrist County, Glades County, Hamilton County, Hardee County, Hendry County (exclude zip code 33935 and 33440), Hernando County, Highlands County (exclude zip code 33825 and 33870), Indian River County, Lafayette County, Lake County, Levy County, Manatee County, Marion County, Martin County, Nassau County, Okeechobee County, Pasco County (exclude zip code 33523), Pinellas County, Putnam County, Sarasota County, Seminole County (exclude zip code 32771), St. Johns County (exclude zip code 32145 and 32084), Sumter County, Suwanee County, and Union County, and (ii) not undertaking the action “No Action”. No additional alternatives were considered.
The proposed project involves housing rehabilitation to be funded by HUD. The Rebuild Florida Housing Repair and Replacement Program may include properties located within the floodplain area. At this time, the exact number and locations of the properties to participate in the program are unspecified, however, eligible applicants are homeowners whose primary residence was damaged by Hurricane Irma in the above listed counties. With approximately 5,627,731 acres within the 100-year floodplain, DEO anticipates assisting homes throughout each county. The Rebuild Florida Housing Repair and Replacement Program will consist of the following activities:
Repair to, reconstruction or replace of housing units damaged by Hurricane Irma, which may include code compliance and mitigation against future storm impacts, including elevation.
The completion of work to homes that have been partially repaired.
Repairs to, or replacement of manufactured, modular and mobile homes impacted by Hurricane Irma.
Temporary housing assistance based on individual homeowners needs and their participation in the Housing Repair Program.
Temporary housing assistance based on individual tenant needs and their participation in the Housing Repair Program.
This activity will have no significant impact on the environment because of the following mitigation measures that will be taken to minimize adverse impacts:
Option A: Homes to be rebuilt in their original location are to be elevated adhering to the federal and/or state requirements.
Option B: Homes damaged may be relocated to a new area within the current developed property with possible elevation per floodplain requirement.
Option C: Refer the homeowner to either the Land Acquisition for Affordable Workforce Housing or Voluntary Home Buyout Program.
A no action alternative was rejected because no action would not provide the residents with financial assistance to rebuild and recover from Hurricane Irma.
Although the project may be located in the 100 year floodplain and/or wetland, the improvements cannot be undertaken in any other location due to the scope of the project. Therefore, it has been determined there are no practicable alternatives other than to proceed with the outlined work.
The proposed improvements will conform to applicable floodplain protection standards. The proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and residents of the community will benefit from the project. Failure to provide these improvements will make it difficult for residents to recover from Hurricane Irma.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and/or wetlands and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public education tool, and can facilitate and enhance federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains and/or wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Written comments must be received by DEO at the following address on or before March 18, 2019 via mail to: 107 E. Madison St. MSC-400, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399. DEO also encourages electronic submittal of comments by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A full description of the project may be reviewed at the above address Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If you need additional information or have questions, please contact Geoff Amison, Environmental Program Manager, at James.email@example.com or 850-717-8422.
