Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed 

Activity in a Floodplain 

To:  All interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals

This is to give notice that Jefferson County, Alabama under 24 CFR Part 58 has determined that the following proposed action under the Community Development Block Grant program and HUD grant number B-14-UC-01-0001 is located in the 100-year floodplain and Jefferson County, Alabama will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action in the floodplain and the potential impacts on the floodplain from the proposed action, as required by Executive Order 11988, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands.

  1. 1. The following is a description of all of the proposed activities that are located with the floodplain:
  1. a. Existing activities that are occurring before proposed project is constructed: Use of the community center, ball fields and outdoor water splash park.
  2. b. Proposed construction activities: Proposed activities include removing and replacing existing chain link fencing around existing recreational fields, minor grading to reduce ponding water on one of four existing fields, and construction of an asphalt parking lot. Parking lot construction will take place in a previously disturbed area where a dilapidated structure and an existing gravel storage area are currently located.
  3. c. New activities when proposed project is completed: No new activities will occur.  This project enhances the existing ball fields, and the proposed parking will be for use by people using the existing facilities. 
  1. 1. The total number of acres of the floodplain: There are approximately 15.2 acres within the floodplain boundary, on the project property.
  2. 2. The total number of acres of the activity within the floodplain: The total land disturbance within the floodplain encompasses approximately 0.7 acres; 0.37 acres making up the proposed asphalt parking area and .33 acres resulting from the removal and re-installation of fence post structures and miscellaneous improvements.
  3. 3. The related natural and beneficial values potentially adversely affected by the activity:  The related natural and beneficial functions of the existing floodplain within the project property are limited, as this area is currently developed with structures, parking area and recreational fields. The proposed project will have no significant impact on the remaining beneficial water resource functions of the floodplain including conveyance and storage of excess stream flow and groundwater recharge. Proposed fence replacement will not hinder storage capacity of floodwaters. While the parking lot will necessarily include reduction of the impervious area within the larger site, the small size relative to the much greater floodplain combined with the current non-natural condition of the area will result in no significant impacts or adverse effects to the related natural and beneficial functions and values of the floodplain.
  4. 4. The proposed Midfield Park Improvements project is located at 410 Grant Street in Midfield, Jefferson County, Alabama.

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.  Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites outside of the floodplain 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, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.

Written comments must be received by Jefferson County, Alabama at the following address on or before November 13, 2015:  Jefferson County Office of Community & Economic Development, 716 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd N, Suite A-430, Birmingham, AL 35203 and (205) 325-5761, Attention:  James A. Stephens, Commission President, during the hours of 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the same address above. Comments may also be submitted via email at smithf@jccal.org.

Date: October 21, 2015
