This is to give notice that Community Development Resources, LLC, on behalf of the City of Santa Rosa, has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 and 11990, in accordance with Texas General Land OfďŹ ce – Disaster Recovery (GLO-DR) program protocols and 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 oodplain and/or wetland will have on the human environment for the proposed Flood & Drainage Facilities, and Acquisitions Project under GLO-DR Contract No. 12-209-000-5509 (DRS210169); Federal grant amount - $500,000. The City of Santa Rosa proposes to use federal funds to purchase and install a new storm sewer drainage system including pipe culverts ranging in size from eighteen to forty-eight inches (18 in.-48 in.), an outfall drainage ditch, inlets, storm sewer manholes, an outfall structure (Tio Cano Main Drain), replacement of an existing culvert crossing and associated appurtenances. In addition, the City of Santa Rosa shall re-grade existing road ditches as needed, perform pavement and driveway repair, and perform site work associated with the construction. Construction shall occur at the southwest quadrant of the City of Santa Rosa, beginning on First Street, south of State Highway 107, continuing along the west side of the City to the proposed outfall drainage ditch which will connect to the proposed Tio Cano Main Drain. The proposed storm sewer will be installed on the following streets: First Street (Drainage Ditch), from San Antonio Avenue to Jesus T. Avila (Tio Cano Drainage Ditch); Fifth Street, from Alamo Avenue to Santa Lorraine Avenue; Seventh Street, from Alamo Avenue to Santa Lorraine Avenue; and Jesus T. Avila Avenue, from Tio Cano Ditch to Seventh Street. Re-grading of existing road ditches will primarily occur at First Street (Drainage Ditch), from Los Fresnos Avenue to San Antonio Avenue, and other areas within the project boundary, as needed. The City of Santa Rosa shall also acquire real property, easements, and/or rights-of-way, as needed, to accommodate the ood and drainage facilities. The affected area is approximately 1,820 feet in width and 2,300 feet in depth (4.186 million square feet, 96.0973 acres), with project sites located in Flood Zone AH (Firm No. 4801140005B, dated May 5, 1981, and 4801010125B, dated September 15, 1983). No wetlands were identiďŹ ed within the project boundary. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in oodplains 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 oodplains and wetlands can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modiďŹ cation of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in oodplains and/ or wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Written comments must be received by the City of Santa Rosa no later than November 26, 2012, at the following address: Santa Rosa City Hall, 413 S. Santa Cruz (or P.O. Box 326), Santa Rosa, TX 78593, during the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays; Tel: (956) 636-1113. Ruben Ochoa, Jr., Mayor, City of Santa Rosa Robert L.
