FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has received the subgrant application for The City of Hollywood’s Marina repairs due to damages from Hurricane Irma (DR-4337-FL PW07363). 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.
Responsible Entity: FEMA Public Assistance (PA) Program
Applicant: City of Hollywood
Project Title(s): PA-04-FL-4337-PW-07363; 29434 - Hollywood Marina
Location of Proposed Work: 700 Polk Street, Hollywood, FL 33019 (GPS: 26.01473, -80.11945)
Floodplain: The project is located in Zone AE and Zone VE, otherwise known as the Coastal High Hazard Area, per Broward County FIRM Panel #12011C0588H dated 08/18/2014.
Proposed Work and Purpose: The City of Hollywood has completed several repairs and plans to repair additional facilities at the Hollywood Marina, damaged as a result of Hurricane Irma. The completed work includes repairs to gas pumps, a security gate, signage, and aluminum fascia. The City of Hollywood also plans to replace signage, finger pier components (including concrete decking, pilings, bumpers, caps, and dock cleats), and a floating dock primarily used by police. No mitigation is included in this project. The proposed project will be conditioned for Endangered Species Act compliance, permits from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Project Alternatives: The alternative that has been considered is the no action alternative. This alternative is not feasible, as these facilities are necessary to provide access to and from the navigable waterways, particularly the police boat dock which ensures the safety of members of the public. Alternate locations were not considered as the dock facilities are functionally dependent upon their location within the floodplain, and they provide open space recreational access to the community.
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 FEMA-R4EHP@fema.dhs.gov. Comments should be sent in writing with the subject line FL-4337-PW-07363, City of Hollywood at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice.
