Final Public Notice FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE

 

Sumner County has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funding through the Tennessee Emergency Management (TEMA) 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: Sumner County

Project Title: FEMA-4320-DR

Location of Proposed Work: Within the Boundaries of Sumner County.  The properties are located in the following areas.

  1. Two (2) properties in Highway 25 area
  • One property contains a house built in 1914, shed, and carport
  • Second property contains a housing structure, store building, wood buildings

 

Name of Structure:  Two (2) Repetitive Loss Properties within the boundaries of Sumner County

                                    A map showing the location of all properties is available by contacting  

Point of Contact: Kim Ark Norfleet; (615) 452-3604 / knorfleet@sumnercountytn.gov

 

Special Flood Hazard Area Zone: This project is for acquisition and demolitions of a housing structure located in flood zone A Zone. Confirmation of location was made by reference to the Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel 47165C0285G dated 4/17/2012. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of Tennessee and local floodplain regulations. The proposed work will be for demolition on previously disturbed ground of building structures and will have no effect on the local floodplain. The action will be mitigated by acquiring and demolishing a housing structure.  The project shall provide protection against a 100 year-storm event.

 

Proposed Work and Purpose: Sumner County, TN is requesting funds for mitigation activity to reduce repetitive damage of property; prevent losses of life and reduce the financial impact caused by flooding.  The acquisition and demolition of said property will completely mitigate the flood risk to this property as it will no longer be there, and the land that is left will be designated green space. The purpose of this project is to create opportunities to develop open space for recreation, environmental protection and educational purposes.

 

Project Alternatives: 

Alternative #1 (no action alternative): If no action is taken to protect the buildings and the public from these flooding events, it will increase the dander of impacts from severe flooding.  Taking no action leaves the property at certain risk of future loss claims due to flooding.   

 

Alternative #2: Elevating would eliminate risks to property; however, residents could still be trapped by rapidly rising waters. Acquisition and Demolition offer complete protection from flood risk and promotes the open space use. 

 

Alternative #3: Relocation option of this property would be too costly. Acquisition and Demolition offer a more cost-efficient method of protecting property form rising flood water due to severe flooding.

 

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 City of Tybee Island. All comments are due within 30 days of this notice. Sumner County, TN will forward comments to applicable regulatory agencies as needed.

Interested persons may submit comments, obtain more detailed information about the proposed action, or request a copy of the findings by contacting:
