Final Public Notice

FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE

 

Pamlico County has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (NCEMA/HS) as a sub-recipient.

Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives to and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.

Applicant: Pamlico County

Project Title: DR-4393 County Remote Facilities

Special Flood Hazard Area Zone: This project is for the repair of a fishing pier and bulkhead located in an Unshaded-X and AE flood zone (Elevation 8 Feet). Confirmation of location in an SFHA was made by reference to the latest Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel 3720648600K issued on 06/30/2016. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of North Carolina and local floodplain regulations. The proposed work will not take place in wetlands per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory and will have little potential to impact or affect wetland values.

Proposed Work and Purpose:

Pamlico County is requesting funds to repair a fishing pier and bulkhead by upgrading to current codes and standards. The purpose of this project is to replace structures and supplies that are in support of open space use encouraging tourism in the Town of Oriental.

Project Alternatives: 

Alternative #1 (no action alternative): If no action is taken to protect these public facilities, it will impact tourism for the Town of Oriental.  

Alternative #2: (Relocation) Relocating structures outside of the SFHA was evaluated. The practicability of moving these structures out of the flood zone would defeat their purpose as they are installed to promote open space use and stimulate tourism.

Alternative #3: (Minimization) Alternatives such as using hog slats and spacing out the decking boards were considered. Hog slats were not practicable because pilings would need to be replaced to support the new decking. Spacing out boards was against ADA regulations since it is restrictive to handicap. Therefore, mitigation is not feasible. Both the pier and bulkhead support open space use and aid to the revenue of the town through tourism.

Comment Period:

Comments are solicited from the public; local, state or federal agencies; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed project. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to the Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO) at: U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency – Region IV - EHP, 3003 Chamblee Tucker Rd, Atlanta, GA 30341-4112, via email to FEMA-R4EHP@fema.dhs.gov. Comments should be sent in writing at the above address within 30 days of the date of this notice with the subject line:  PA-04-NC-4393-PW-00650, Pamlico County.

POSTED ON: October 7, 2019

HMGP 4393-DR PUBLIC NOTICE

JOINT FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL PUBLIC NOTICE

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and North Carolina Emergency Management have received the following applications for Federal grant funding. Notice is hereby given of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s consideration to provide funding in the form of a Hazard Mitigation Grant.

 

Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives to and provide public notices of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12892 also requires FEMA to provide an opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority or low-income populations.

 

Funding for the proposed projects will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.

 

  1. Applicant: Pamlico County, North Carolina

Project Title: Pamlico County Acquisition Project

Location of Proposed Work: The area affected by this project consists of potentially six (6) properties located on the following streets in Pamlico County: NC HWY 304, Gibbtown Road and Lowland Road,

 

Maps of the project areas associated with the grant applications can be reviewed by contacting Mr. Tim Buck at 252-745-3133.

 

Proposed Work and Purpose:

This will be a voluntary acquisition program. For all property owners who decide to participate in this voluntary program, the properties will be acquired using HMGP grant funds. The properties will be deeded as open space in perpetuity and will be allowed to revert to their natural state.

 

Project Alternatives:

Not taking a mitigation action is an option, but not an acceptable one. The reasoning for rejecting the No Action Alternative is that doing so will not mitigate any risks.  The entire project area would remain in danger from future flood events. Without acquiring these structures, damages and the risk of potential loss of life will continue to be a threat. 

 

The second alternative is to elevate the structures. However, the most effective mitigation action is to remove the structures completely from the high-risk area, thereby eliminating any future risk to the structure. These homeowners prefer acquisition and complete elimination of their risk, so elevation is considered a less preferable option.

 

  1. Applicant: Pamlico County, North Carolina

Project Title: Pamlico County Elevation Project

Location of Proposed Work: The area affected by this project consists of potentially 114 properties located on the following streets in Pamlico County: Second Lane, Howells Road, Cheryl Drive, NC 304 Hwy, Lowland Road, Blackwell Point Loop Road, Rich Avenue, Spinnaker Point Road N, Pennsylvania Avenue, Trent Road, Silverbrook Road, Chinchilla Drive, NXC 304 & 33 Hwy, Whortonsville Road, Alfred Road, Union Street, NC 55 Hwy, Lynchs Beach Loop Road, Myrtlewood Lane, Shine Drive, S First Street, Kennels Beach Road, Murray Lane, Pine Lane, Fulford Point Road, Live Oak Road, S Goose Creek Road, Horne Road, Short Road, Straight Road, River Road, Neuse Street, Half Moon Road, Cowell Road, Janiero Road, Fisher Road, High Street, Beech Lane, Schooner circle, Alligator Loop Road, First Lane, Griggs Road, Swan Point Road, Bogue Drive, Sandpiper Drive, Mills Road, Oak Lane, Styrontown Beach Road, Falcon Road, Hodges Street,  Florence Road, N Dawn Street, Warren Drive, Pamlico Road, Rollo Road, Alfred Road and Tiller Extension.
