Travis County, the Responsible Entity for 24 CFR Part 58 environmental regulations, posted an early floodplain notice pertaining to the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program (grant number GLO 19-281-000-8780) regarding proposed actions in the floodplain and the potential impacts on the floodplain from the proposed actions, 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. Written comments were accepted for a period of 15 days. The public comment period ended on July 24, 2021. No public comments were received. However, the following comments were received from the agencies noted below:

  • FEMA: Requested that the Community Floodplain Administrator be notified for review and possible permit requirements (and specifically the City of Austin and Travis County Floodplain Administrators); and that, if federally funded, that the project be in compliance with EO11988 & EO 11990.

    Our response: Travis County has notified all appropriate floodplain administrators, including the City of Austin and Travis County.
  • Travis County Floodplain Administrator: Requested that any valid permits be issued, as applicable.

    Our response: The Travis County Transportation & Natural Resources department verified that any applicable permits are or will be obtained.

The next step is to publish a final notice. See above announcement with the Final Floodplain Notice.
