FINAL NOTICE AND PUBLIC EXPLANATION OF A PROPOSED ACTIVITY IN A 100-YEAR FLOODPLAIN To: All interested Agencies – Federal, State, and Local – Groups and Individuals This is to give notice that the Smith County Government under CFR 24 Part 58 has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management, to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain and wetland will have on the human environment for a Community Development Block Grant under B-21-DC-47-0001. The proposed project(s) is located 117 Eatherly Landing in Carthage, Smith County, TN. Smith County Government plans to disseminate Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Child Care Creation Project funds to a sub-recipient for the purpose of renovating an existing commercial building to be converted into a licensed child care facility. The entirety of the 1.57-acre property in question is located within a 100-year floodplain. Smith County Government has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values: Smith County Government has reevaluated the alternatives to building in the floodplain and has determined that it has no practicable alternative. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990, are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location delineated in the last paragraph of this notice for receipt of comments. This activity will have no significant impact on the environment for the following reasons: There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains 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 educational tool. The dissemination of information about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks 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, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Written comments must be received by the Smith County Government at the following address on or before November 17,2022 Smith County Government 122 Turner High Circle, Carthage, TN 37030 Attention: Jeff Mason, County Mayor (615) 735-1881 Comments may also be submitted or further information can be requested via email at [email protected] A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 8:00 am – 4:30pm at 1104 England Drive Cookeville, TN 38501. November 10, 2022 Name of Certifying Officer: Jeff Mason Title of Certifying Officer: Smith County Mayor 11-10-22(1t)
