Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed
Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain
To: All interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that the United State Army Corps of Engineers (“USACE”), a federal agency, has determined that the following proposed action is located in the 100-year floodplain, and the City of Robstown (City) has identified and evaluated practicable alternatives to locating the action in the floodplain and the potential impacts on the floodplain from the proposed action, as required by [Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990], in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands.
The only access to the City of Robstown Public Works Department compound is the existing State Department Road located off North Upshaw Boulevard which crosses the Union Pacific Railway. Due to the vicinity of the road in relation to the Union Pacific Railway, the State Department Road is being closed. This eliminates all access by City personnel and citizens to the compound and the critical facilities.
The City of Robstown intends to construct a roadway and related infrastructure within a 60-foot easement for access into the City’s Public Works Compound utilizing a 0.9790-acre tract of land, which is within the 50.283-acre United States of America owned. The proposed roadway will connect the City’s Public Works Compound to USA Army Reserve entry road that connects to US Highway 77 and State Highway 44. The proposed roadway will be centered in the 60-ft easement with two 14-ft-wide lanes with a 2% cross slope from the centerline and roadside drainage ditches within the remaining 16-ft easement on each side. Construction activities will include excavation, grading, limestone fill and compaction, hot-mix asphalt pavement, seeding, and miscellaneous items.
Construction will take place within the southwest portion of the federally owned 50.283-Acre tract out of Lot 15, Map D, George H. Paul Subdivision of the Driscoll Ranch, City of Robstown, Texas (Parcel 282086, Nueces County Appraisal District). The western edge borders an adjacent agricultural field and extends from the US Highway 77 ROW north to the City’s Public Works parcel. The northern end of the site is located at 27°47’42.70″N, 97°39’15.63″W and the southern end is located at 27°47’36.30″N, 97°39’15.66″W.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First people who may be affected by activities and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites, alternative methods to serve the same project purpose, and methods to minimize and mitigate impacts. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about the project can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in such actions, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Written comments must be received by City of Robstown at the following address within 15 calendar days after the publication of this NOTICE to: 101 E Main Ave, Robstown, TX 78380, Attention: Beatriz Charo, City Secretary. Comments may also be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A full description of the proposed project may also be reviewed from 8AM to 5PM at the same address above.
