Liberty County, Florida
Community Development Block Grant – Mitigation (CDBG-MIT)
Rebuild Florida Mitigation General Infrastructure Program– Round I
PUBLIC NOTICE

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is making available $680,411,000 (86 FR 561) in CDBG-MIT funding to local governments impacted by Hurricane Michael through the Rebuild Florida Mitigation General Infrastructure Program – Round 1. This public notice is to solicit citizen comments on the proposed application for Liberty County. The public comment period begins on Monday, May 23, 2022 and ends on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at 4:00 pm.  For information on this public notice or projects, to provide comments on proposed projects listed below, or to receive a copy of the draft CDBG-MIT applications, contact Jennifer Hudgins, Liberty County Special Projects and Grants Coordinator at (850) 643-3247 or [email protected].  The application will also be available for review at the Liberty County Courthouse (West Wing-2nd Floor) at 10818 NW State Road 20, Bristol, FL 32321.

Liberty County will submit two projects for consideration under this round of funding which are detailed below:  

PROJECT 1:

Liberty County Estiffanulga Bank and Boat Ramp Stabilization – 3.5 million dollars

The parameters of this project spans roughly 4,000 linear feet to stabilize the bank along the Apalachicola River. These funds will be used to construct a Toe-Wood Structure along the bank. This type of stabilization method will improve the natural habitat for all species while protecting the bank from continued loss of property through erosion. The funds will be largely used for the construction of the project, with also funding for the project design, permitting and the construction inspection.

 

Chattahoochee Circle is an asphalt, county road that serves the residents in the Estiffanulga Community. Using Google Earth, from December, 2013 to September, 2018, the erosion moved at an average of 3.5’ per year, with the riverbank only 26’ from the edge of the roadway.  Since, Hurricane Michael hit in October, 2018, those figures have doubled.  At present, the riverbank is only 16’ from the roadway.  Hurricane Michael deeply exacerbated the issue and progressed the issue at far greater speeds than the county could have anticipated. The bank will continue to erode and undermine the roadway and threaten residential structures.

 

Components of the Estiffanulga Water System are located within 20’ of the riverbank and if the components become compromised it will create an issue of restructuring the entire water system, in an already congested area. Infrastructure near the river includes, a well, chlorination building, control room, and ground storage tank. In addition, distribution lines are located adjacent to the roadway. If erosion is left unaddressed, these water system components could be damaged as well as, drinking water quality diminished. 

 

The Estiffanulga Boat Ramp is also located within the project limits and is at high risk of complete failure if the erosion persists behind the rip-rap boat launch channel.  Without this boat ramp, it will gravely impact not only residents of the area, but tourists and fishermen and women that vacation in the area.  That will also have a negative impact on recreational and tourist dollars being spent in the county, which additionally, impacts the overall county’s revenue, which is already considered fiscally constrained.   

 

Installation of a Toe-Wood structure will stabilize the banks and significantly reduce current sedimentation, which improves the overall water quality of the Apalachicola River Basin, as well as, Little Gully Creek, which has been deemed by the DEP as impaired waters in a report dated May 19th, 2019.  Therefore, by taking mitigative measures to improve the bank stabilization, it will also improve the water quality at Little Gully Creek.  Toe-Wood Structures mimic natural processes by depositing significant woody material into the channel and eroding bank. This increases natural habitat utilized by many species within the Apalachicola River system, including several federal and listed species.

 

 

PROJECT 2:

Liberty County Veteran’s Memorial Community Civic Center Improvements – $1,989,400

After Hurricane Michael, it became abundantly clear to Liberty County that a more long-term shelter facility would be needed in order to house displaced citizens and/or first responders in the event of another natural disaster.  During Hurricane Michael, Veteran’s Memorial Civic Center sustained significant damage.  The Civic Center has been vacant for over a year, while a new roof, HVAC system and other significant infrastructures can be repaired and made safe again for our citizens and county staff.  However, before the county can offer long-term shelter options to our citizens and/or first responders, it must meet the necessary requirements to do so per Red Cross standards.  Those include, repairs and ADA accessibility upgrades to the exterior sidewalks and interior flooring, renovation and repairs to the stormwater and wastewater systems to mitigate flooding and/or other issues to the building, expanding and repaving the parking lot to accommodate citizens in the event of a crises, creating an additional access point road for first responders and emergency personnel adjacent to the Civic Center, upgrades to security fencing, security camera systems to mitigate any issues pertaining to theft and/or trespassing after hours, upgrades to broadband and communications infrastructures to mitigate communications issues and/or failures and the installation of an industrial-generator and upgrades to lighting, electrical, paint and landscaping.

Typically, Liberty County schools are the designated storm shelters and in the event the county has another hurricane or storm, such as Michael, it can be prepared to house citizens on a more long-term basis, thus, allowing schools to return to standard operation in a timelier manner.  This is a great opportunity to mitigate unnecessary time away from school, yet, allow citizens a shelter and/or resources, should they need it.  Lastly, this project would afford the county the opportunity to address issues to its infrastructure that present as safety hazards that were created by Hurricane Michael and have not been addressed yet due to financial constraints. 

 

Liberty County does not anticipate that anyone will be displaced because of the CDBG-MIT funded activities proposed above. If persons are displaced because of the planned activities, Liberty County will assist them as described in the County’s anti-displacement and relocation policy, which is available for review at the Liberty County Courthouse at 10818 NW State Road 20, Bristol, FL 32321.

Condado de Liberty, Florida

Subvención en bloque para el desarrollo comunitario – Mitigación (CDBG-MIT)

Reconstruir el Programa de Infraestructura General de Mitigación de Florida – Ronda I

NOTICIA PÚBLICA

El Departamento de Oportunidades Económicas (DEO) de Florida está poniendo a disposición $680,411,000 (86 FR 561) en fondos CDBG-MIT para los gobiernos locales afectados por el huracán Michael a través del Programa de infraestructura general de mitigación de reconstrucción de Florida – Ronda 1. Este aviso público es para solicitar comentarios de los ciudadanos sobre la solicitud propuesta para el condado de Liberty. El período de comentarios públicos comienza el lunes 23 de mayo de 2022 y finaliza el martes 24 de junio de 2022 a las 4:00 p. m. Para obtener información sobre este aviso público o proyectos, para proporcionar comentarios sobre los proyectos propuestos que se enumeran a continuación, o para recibir una copia del borrador de las solicitudes de CDBG-MIT, comuníquese con Jennifer Hudgins, coordinadora de subvenciones y proyectos especiales del condado de Liberty al (850) 643-3247 o [email protected] La solicitud también estará disponible para su revisión en el juzgado del condado de Liberty (ala oeste, segundo piso) en 10818 NW State Road 20, Bristol, FL 32321.

El condado de Liberty presentará dos proyectos para su consideración bajo esta ronda de financiación que se detallan a continuación:

PROYECTO 1:

Estabilización de la rampa para botes y el banco Estiffanulga del condado de Liberty: 3,5 millones de dólares

Los parámetros de este proyecto abarcan aproximadamente 4000 pies lineales para estabilizar el banco a lo largo del río Apalachicola. Estos fondos se utilizarán para construir una estructura Toe-Wood a lo largo del banco. Este tipo de método de estabilización mejorará el hábitat natural para todas las especies mientras protege el banco de la pérdida continua de propiedad por la erosión. Los fondos se utilizarán en gran medida para la construcción del proyecto, y también se financiarán el diseño del proyecto, los permisos y la inspección de la construcción.

 

Chattahoochee Circle es una carretera asfaltada del condado que sirve a los residentes de la comunidad de Estiffanulga. Usando Google Earth, desde diciembre de 2013 hasta septiembre de 2018, la erosión se movió a un promedio de 3.5 pies por año, con la orilla del río a solo 26 pies del borde de la carretera. Desde que azotó el huracán Michael en octubre de 2018, esas cifras se han duplicado. En la actualidad, la orilla del río está a solo 16 ‘de la carretera. El huracán Michael exacerbó profundamente el problema y progresó a una velocidad mucho mayor de lo que el condado podría haber anticipado. El banco continuará erosionando y socavando la calzada y amenazando las estructuras residenciales.

 

Los componentes del sistema de agua de Estiffanulga están ubicados dentro de los 20′ de la orilla del río y si los componentes se ven comprometidos, se creará un problema de reestructuración de todo el sistema de agua, en un área ya congestionada. La infraestructura cerca del río incluye un pozo, un edificio de cloración , sala de control y tanque de almacenamiento en tierra. Además, las líneas de distribución están ubicadas junto a la calzada. Si no se aborda la erosión, estos componentes del sistema de agua podrían dañarse y disminuir la calidad del agua potable.

 

La rampa para botes de Estiffanulga también está ubicada dentro de los límites del proyecto y tiene un alto riesgo de falla total si la erosión persiste detrás del canal de lanzamiento de botes de escollera. Sin esta rampa para botes, afectará gravemente no solo a los residentes del área, sino también a los turistas y pescadores y mujeres que vacacionan en el área. Eso también tendrá un impacto negativo en los dólares recreativos y turísticos que se gastan en el condado, lo que además afecta los ingresos generales del condado, que ya se considera fiscalmente limitado.

 

La instalación de una estructura Toe-Wood estabilizará las orillas y reducirá significativamente la sedimentación actual, lo que mejora la calidad general del agua de la cuenca del río Apalachicola, así como Little Gully Creek, que el DEP ha considerado aguas deterioradas en un informe. del 19 de mayo de 2019. Por lo tanto, al tomar medidas de mitigación para mejorar la estabilización del banco, también mejorará la calidad del agua en Little Gully Creek. Las estructuras Toe-Wood imitan los procesos naturales al depositar material leñoso significativo en el canal y erosionar el banco. Esto aumenta el hábitat natural utilizado por muchas especies dentro del sistema del río Apalachicola, incluidas varias especies federales y enumeradas.

 

PROYECTO 2:

Mejoras en el Centro Cívico Comunitario Memorial de los Veteranos del Condado de Liberty – $1,989,400

Después del huracán Michael, quedó muy claro para el condado de Liberty que se necesitaría una instalación de refugio a más largo plazo para albergar a los ciudadanos desplazados y/o socorristas en caso de otro desastre natural. Durante el huracán Michael, el Veteran’s Memorial Civic Center sufrió daños significativos. El Centro Cívico ha estado vacante durante más de un año, mientras que un techo nuevo, un sistema HVAC y otras infraestructuras significativas pueden repararse y volver a ser seguras para nuestros ciudadanos y el personal del condado. Sin embargo, antes de que el condado pueda ofrecer opciones de refugio a largo plazo a nuestros ciudadanos y/o socorristas, debe cumplir con los requisitos necesarios para hacerlo según los estándares de la Cruz Roja. Estos incluyen reparaciones y mejoras de accesibilidad ADA a las aceras exteriores y pisos interiores, renovación y reparaciones a los sistemas de aguas pluviales y aguas residuales para mitigar inundaciones y/u otros problemas del edificio, expansión y repavimentación del estacionamiento para dar cabida a los ciudadanos en caso de una crisis, creando un camino de punto de acceso adicional para los socorristas y el personal de emergencia adyacente al Centro Cívico, mejoras a las vallas de seguridad, sistemas de cámaras de seguridad para mitigar cualquier problema relacionado con robos y/o traspasos fuera del horario de atención, mejoras a las infraestructuras de comunicaciones y banda ancha para permitir comunicaciones más eficientes, un generador comercial y actualizaciones de iluminación, electricidad, pintura y paisajismo.

 

Por lo general, las escuelas del condado de Liberty son los refugios designados para tormentas y, en caso de que el condado tenga otro huracán o tormenta, como Michael, se puede preparar para albergar a los ciudadanos a más largo plazo, lo que permite que las escuelas regresen a un horario oportuno. conducta. Esta es una gran oportunidad para mitigar el tiempo innecesario fuera de la escuela y, sin embargo, permitir a los ciudadanos un refugio y/o recursos, en caso de que lo necesiten. Por último, este proyecto le brindaría al condado la oportunidad de abordar los problemas de su infraestructura que se presentan como riesgos de seguridad que fueron creados por el huracán Michael.

El condado de Liberty no anticipa que nadie será desplazado debido a las actividades financiadas por CDBG-MIT propuestas anteriormente. Si las personas son desplazadas debido a las actividades planificadas, el condado de Liberty las ayudará como se describe en la política contra el desplazamiento y la reubicación del condado, que está disponible para su revisión en el juzgado del condado de Liberty en 10818 NW State Road 20, Bristol, FL 32321.

Este aviso público y período de comentarios se lleva a cabo de conformidad con las disposiciones de la Ley de Estadounidenses con Discapacidades para garantizar la accesibilidad para todos. Cualquier persona que requiera adaptaciones especiales para participar en esta notificación pública debe comunicarse con Jennifer Hudgins, Coordinadora de Proyectos Especiales y Subvenciones del Condado de Liberty al (850) 643-3247 o [email protected] Si tiene problemas de audición, del habla o necesita otras adaptaciones, comuníquese con la Sra. Hudgins utilizando el Servicio de retransmisión de Florida marcando el 7-1-1, que puede proporcionar muchos servicios diferentes, incluida la traducción del español al inglés.

Sibvansyon Blòk Devlopman Kominotè – Diminisyon (CDBG-MIT)

Rebati Pwogram Enfrastrikti Jeneral Mitigasyon Laflorid – Fason I

AVI PUBLIK

Depatman Opòtinite Ekonomik Laflorid (DEO) ap mete disponib $680,411,000 (86 FR 561) nan finansman CDBG-MIT bay gouvènman lokal ki afekte nan siklòn Michael atravè Pwogram Enfrastrikti Jeneral Rebati Florid Rebati – Faz 1.

Pou jwenn enfòmasyon sou avi piblik sa a oswa pwojè sa yo, pou bay kòmantè sou pwojè yo pwopoze ki nan lis pi ba a, oswa pou resevwa yon kopi aplikasyon CDBG-MIT yo, kontakte Jennifer Hudgins, Koòdonatè Pwojè Espesyal ak Sibvansyon Konte Liberty nan (850) 643-3247 oswa [email protected] Aplikasyon an ap disponib tou pou revize nan Tribinal Konte Liberty (West Wing-2nd Floor) nan 10818 NW State Road 20, Bristol, FL 32321.

Konte Liberty pral soumèt de pwojè pou konsiderasyon nan kad finansman sa a ki detaye anba a:

PWOJÈ 1:

Estabilizasyon Bank Estiffanulga Konte Liberty ak Ranp Bato – 3.5 milyon dola

Paramèt pwojè sa a kouvri apeprè 4,000 pye lineyè pou estabilize bank la sou Rivyè Apalachicola. Lajan sa yo pral itilize pou konstwi yon Estrikti Toe-Wood sou bank lan. Kalite metòd estabilizasyon sa a pral amelyore abita natirèl la pou tout espès yo pandan y ap pwoteje bank lan kont pèt kontinyèl pwopriyete atravè ewozyon. Lajan yo pral lajman itilize pou konstriksyon pwojè a, ak tou finansman pou konsepsyon pwojè a, pèmi ak enspeksyon konstriksyon an.

Chattahoochee Circle se yon asfalt, wout konte ki sèvi rezidan yo nan kominote Estiffanulga. Sèvi ak Google Earth, depi Desanm, 2013 rive Septanm, 2018, ewozyon an te deplase nan yon mwayèn de 3.5 ‘pa ane, ak rivyè a sèlman 26’ soti nan kwen an nan wout la. Depi siklòn Michael te frape nan mwa Oktòb 2018, chif sa yo double. Kounye a, rivyè a se sèlman 16’ de wout la. Siklòn Michael te agrave pwoblèm nan anpil e li te pwogrese pwoblèm nan a yon vitès ki pi gran pase konte a te kapab prevwa. Bank la pral kontinye erode ak mine wout la epi menase estrikti rezidansyèl yo.

Konpozan nan Sistèm Dlo Estiffanulga yo sitiye nan 20′ nan rivyè a epi si eleman yo vin konpwomèt li pral kreye yon pwoblèm nan restriktire sistèm dlo a tout antye, nan yon zòn ki deja anboutey. , chanm kontwòl, ak tank depo tè. Anplis de sa, liy distribisyon yo sitiye tou pre wout la. Si yo pa regle ewozyon, konpozan sistèm dlo sa yo ka andomaje epi bon jan kalite dlo pou bwè a diminye.

Ranp Bato Estiffanulga a sitiye tou nan limit pwojè yo epi li gen gwo risk pou yo echèk nèt si ewozyon an pèsiste dèyè kanal lansman bato rip-rap la. San yo pa ranp bato sa a, li pral gravman enpak non sèlman rezidan nan zòn nan, men touris ak pechè ak fanm ki vakans nan zòn nan. Sa pral gen tou yon enpak negatif sou dola lwazi ak touris yo ap depanse nan konte a, ki anplis, gen yon enpak sou revni jeneral konte a, ki deja konsidere kòm kontrent fiskal.

Enstalasyon yon estrikti Toe-Wood pral estabilize bank yo epi redwi siyifikativman sedimantasyon aktyèl la, ki amelyore kalite dlo an jeneral nan Basen Rivyè Apalachicola, ansanm ak, Little Gully Creek, ke DEP a te konsidere kòm dlo andikape nan yon rapò. ki gen dat 19 me 2019. Se poutèt sa, lè w pran mezi mityèl pou amelyore estabilizasyon bank lan, li pral amelyore kalite dlo a nan Little Gully Creek tou. Zòtèy-Wood Estrikti imite pwosesis natirèl lè yo depoze materyèl bwa enpòtan nan kanal la ak erozyon bank. Sa ogmante abita natirèl yo itilize pa anpil espès nan sistèm Apalachicola River, ki gen ladan plizyè espès federal ak ki nan lis.

PWOJÈ 2:

Amelyorasyon Sant Sivik Kominotè Memorial Konte Libète Veteran – $1,989,400

Apre Siklòn Michael, li te vin klè anpil pou Konte Liberty ke yon etablisman abri plis alontèm ta bezwen pou loje sitwayen ki deplase yo ak/oswa premye sekouris yo nan ka yon lòt katastwòf natirèl. Pandan siklòn Michael, Memorial Civic Center Veteran te sibi gwo domaj. Sant Sivik la te vid pou plis pase yon ane, alòske yon nouvo do kay, sistèm HVAC ak lòt enfrastrikti enpòtan yo ka repare epi rann sekirite ankò pou sitwayen nou yo ak anplwaye konte yo. Sepandan, anvan konte a ka ofri opsyon abri alontèm pou sitwayen nou yo ak/oswa premye sekouris yo, li dwe ranpli kondisyon ki nesesè pou fè sa dapre estanda Lakwa Wouj yo. Sa yo enkli, reparasyon ak amelyorasyon aksè ADA nan twotwa eksteryè yo ak planche enteryè yo, renovasyon ak reparasyon nan sistèm dlo lapli ak dlo ize pou bese inondasyon ak/oswa lòt pwoblèm nan bilding nan, elaji ak renove pakin nan pou akomode sitwayen yo nan ka ta gen. yon kriz, kreye yon wout aksè adisyonèl pou premye sekouris yo ak pèsonèl ijans ki toupre Sant Sivik la, amelyorasyon nan kloti sekirite yo, sistèm kamera sekirite yo pou bese nenpòt pwoblèm ki gen rapò ak vòl ak/oswa vyolasyon apre lè, amelyorasyon nan bande laj ak enfrastrikti kominikasyon yo. pèmèt pou kominikasyon pi efikas, yon dèlko komèsyal, ak amelyorasyon nan ekleraj, elektrik, penti ak jaden.

Tipikman, lekòl Liberty County yo se abri tanpèt yo deziyen yo epi si konte a gen yon lòt siklòn oswa yon tanpèt, tankou Michael, li ka prepare pou loje sitwayen yo sou yon baz pi long tèm, konsa, ki pèmèt lekòl yo retounen nan yon tan. fason. Sa a se yon gwo opòtinite pou diminye tan ki pa nesesè ale lekòl, men, pèmèt sitwayen yo yon abri ak/oswa resous, si yo bezwen li. Anfen, pwojè sa a ta bay konte a opòtinite pou adrese pwoblèm nan enfrastrikti li yo ki prezante kòm danje sekirite ki te kreye pa Siklòn Michael.

Konte Liberty pa prevwa ke nenpòt moun pral deplase akòz aktivite CDBG-MIT ki finanse yo pwopoze pi wo a. Si moun yo deplase akòz aktivite ki planifye yo, Konte Liberty pral ede yo jan sa dekri nan règleman kont deplasman ak demenajman Konte a, ki disponib pou revize nan Tribinal Konte Liberty nan 10818 NW State Road 20, Bristol, FL 32321.

Avi piblik ak peryòd kòmantè sa a ap fèt dapre dispozisyon Lwa Ameriken andikape yo pou asire aksè pou tout moun. Nenpòt moun ki bezwen aranjman espesyal pou patisipe nan notifikasyon piblik sa a mande pou kontakte Jennifer Hudgins, Koòdonatè Pwojè Espesyal ak Sibvansyon Konte Liberty nan (850) 643-3247 oswa [email protected] Si w gen pwoblèm pou tande, lapawòl, oswa si w bezwen lòt aranjman, tanpri kontakte Madam Hudgins lè w ap itilize Florida Relay Service lè w konpoze 7-1-1, ki ka bay anpil sèvis diferan, tankou tradiksyon panyòl an angle.

Draft Liberty County Long-Term Recovery Plan

In the wake of Hurricane Michael, the Liberty County Board of County Commissioners, in partnership with the Apalachee Regional Planning Council (ARPC) and OVID Solutions, presents the DRAFT Liberty County Long-Term Recovery Plan for public review and comment.  This plan has been developed through a Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant awarded by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO).  This proposed recovery plan has been carefully designed to include priority projects identified through county-wide input.  Each listed project indicates potential funding strategies to achieve the desired outcomes.  The establishment of this plan is an opportunity for Liberty County to re-imagine its long-term vision and to implement that vision on a much faster timeline (within 10-15 years instead of 25-50 years), which will pave the way to realize desired economic growth that is desperately needed following the devastation of Hurricane Michael.

This Long-Term Recovery Plan will be presented for a first public hearing before the Liberty County Board of County Commissioners on October 8 with a final adoption hearing anticipated on November 5.  Any questions or comments can be sent directly to Ben Chandler at the Apalachee Regional Planning Council.  The deadline for comments for the first hearing is Wednesday, September 30, 2020.  The deadline for final comments ahead of the adoption hearing is Friday, October 30, 2020.  Please submit all questions and comments by email to Ben Chandler at [email protected].

Once comments are received, they will be incorporated into the final proposed plan, as appropriate, and will be presented to the Liberty County Board of County Commissioners.  Once adopted, the Liberty County Long-Term Recovery Plan will serve as the foundation of ongoing economic recovery and resilience.
