COMBINED NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
AND INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS

 

SEPTEMBER 23, 2014

LEE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

P. O. BOX 367                       

JONESVILLE, VIRGINIA 24263

(276) 346-7714

This Notice shall satisfy the above-cited two separate but related procedural notification requirements.

 

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS

 

On or about October 14, 2014, the Lee County Board of Supervisors will submit a request to the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) for the release of Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development funds under  Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended (PL 93-383), to undertake a project known as Baileytown Community Water Project, for the purpose of construction of 3,935 LF of water distribution line and 1,600 LF of water service line to provide water to residents of the Baileytown community in western Lee County.

 

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

 

The Lee County Board of Supervisors has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment.  Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required.  Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the Lee County Administrator’s Office, Lee County Courthouse, 33640 Main Street, Suite 111, Jonesville, Virginia and may be examined or copied weekdays 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

 

PUBLIC COMMENTS

 

Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments to the Lee County Administrator’s Office.  All comments received by October 13, 2014 will be considered by the Lee County Board of Supervisors prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds.  Commentors should specify which part of this Notice they are addressing.

 

RELEASE OF FUNDS

 

The Lee County Board of Supervisors certifies to DHCD that Dane Poe in his capacity as County Administrator consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied.  DHCD’S approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the Lee County Board of Supervisors to use Program funds.

 

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

 

DHCD will consider objections to its release of funds and the Lee County Board of Supervisors’ certification received by October 31, 2014 or a period of fifteen days from its receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer or other officer of the Lee County Board of Supervisors approved by DHCD;  (b) the Lee County Board of Supervisors has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by DHCD; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.  Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to DHCD at:

Director

 

Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development
Attn:  Program Administration and Assistance Office
