FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has received the subgrant application for the City of Ormond Beach’s Cassen Park Fishing Pier repairs due to damages in Hurricane Irma (DR‐4337‐FL PW 04617). Pursuant to Executive Order 11988 and 44 CFR Part 9.12, final notice is hereby given of FEMA’s intent to provide funding for this project under the Public Assistance (PA) Program.
An initial disaster‐wide Public Notice was published October 6, 2017 for Hurricane Irma. Comments and other information received were fully evaluated by FEMA along with evaluation of social, economic, environmental, and safety considerations. This notice serves as a project‐specific final notice for FEMA’s funding action located within the floodplain.
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. This action complies with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) requirements.
Responsible Entity: FEMA Public Assistance (PA) Program
Applicant: City of Ormond Beach
Project Title(s): PA‐04‐FL‐4337‐PW‐04617; 33183 ‐ Cassen Park ‐ Fishing Pier
Location of Proposed Work: (29.285633, ‐81.054264)
Floodplain: Project is located in the AE Zone, otherwise known as the area of 100‐yr flooding, per Volusia County FIRM Panel #12127C0216 K, dated 09/29/2017.
Proposed Work and Purpose: The City of Ormond Beach repaired a damaged fishing pier as a result of Hurricane Irma. Approximately 6,600 SF of the pier was replaced. The city obtained the appropriate permits for the work and has confirmed compliance with permit conditions.
Project Alternatives: The alternative that has been considered is the no action alternative. This alternative is not feasible as the area will remain vulnerable to property damage and hazards to human life and safety. With the no action alternative, continued negative impacts on the property, nearby residents, and the community may be experienced. Alternate locations were not considered as the pier is functionally dependent upon its location within the floodplain. The facility also provides open space uses for recreation.
Comments: This will serve as the final public notice regarding the above‐described action funded by the FEMA PA program. Interested persons may submit comments, questions, or request a map of this specific project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Region 4, 3003 Chamblee‐Tucker Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30341, or by emailing FEMAR4EHP@fema.dhs.gov.
