These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the Louisville/ Jefferson County Metro Government

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS

On or about September 30, 2022 the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government will submit a request to HUD for the release of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) funds under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended; 42 U.S.C.-530.1 et seq. This project area is composed of vacant land due to a large flood event in 2009. In the wake of the devastating flooding, Louisville Metro Sewer District secured a $9.75 million FEMA grant to acquire and raze more than 100 properties in the project area. This project proposes the conversion of this vacant land into a community park and greenspace. This multiphase proposed park includes the construction of park amenities, such as playground equipment, restroom facilities, picnic shelters, an outdoor classroom, pollinator garden, a pavilion, and a great lawn. The construction of these amenities will require ground disturbance. Property acquisition is required for this project. The property to be acquired has been abandoned. The total cost of the project is estimated at $14,202,870 utilizing $2,203,250 in CDBG funds.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

The Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government 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) (PL-91-190) is not required. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) respecting the within project has been made by the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government which documents the environmental review of the project and more fully sets forth the reasons why such Statement is not required.  Additional project information is contained in the ERR. The ERR is available electronically online at the following website: https://louisvilleky.gov/government/housing/public-notices-federal-plans-and-project-compliance

PUBLIC COMMENTS

All interested agencies, groups, and persons disagreeing with the ERR decision are invited to submit comments by email for consideration by the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government to  Marilyn Harris, Director of Housing at [email protected] or in writing at the address listed above.  Such comments should be received at the Office of Housing on or before September 30, 2022.  All such comments so received will be considered prior to authorizing submission of a request for a release of funds or taking any administrative action on the within project prior to the date specified on the proceeding sentence. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

The Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government certifies to HUD that the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government and Marilyn Harris, in her official capacity as certifying officer consent to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to environmental reviews, decision making, and action; and that these responsibilities have been satisfied.  HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and related laws and authorities and allows the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government to use federal funds and implement the Program. 

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the RE’s certification for a period of 15 days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following basis: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the name of RE; (b) the RE 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 development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD/State; 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, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the Louisville Office of Community Planning and Development at [email protected].  Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
