INDIVIDUAL INITIAL PUBLIC NOTICE

NOTIFICATION is hereby given to the public of the intent of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide assistance to Holmes county, Florida, for the improvement of approximately twenty-one (21) county owned and maintained roadways located in Holmes County, Florida, which were damaged during severe rain and thunderstorms which resulted in overland flooding during the June 2013 event.

Due to its location, this project is susceptible to future damages from flooding.  Under the President of the United State’s Executive Order No. 11988, Floodplain Management, FEMA is required to review the restoration of these roadways for opportunities to relocate them out of the floodplain or to minimize future damage from flooding. Public comment is invited on possible alternatives to these actions, methods to protect these roadways and on whether these roadways should be restored at all.

Interested persons may obtain information about this action and its specific locations by calling (850) 739-3600 or by emailing holmescounty@theintegritygroup.net, between 8:00am and 4:00pm, Monday through Thursday.  Comments about this project and the application of the Floodplain Management Executive Order should be submitted in writing to Bob Stinebaugh, Holmes County FEMA Coordinator, at the above email address by 4:00pm on Thursday, October 17, 2019.

THIS PUBLIC NOTICE will also serve as the final public notice, provided there are no questions or concerns of great importance regarding this project.
