OF PROPOSED PROJECT
TO BE LOCATED IN AN AREA
SUBJECT TO SHEET FLOW
Date of Publication:
October 22, 2017
The Tohono O'odham Ki:Ki Association is proposing construction of new housing to be funded with equity raised through the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) number B17SR040292 and Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) number 55IH0402920 funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Tohono O'odham Ki:Ki Association has determined that this proposed project is located within an area of undetermined flood hazards in the Hali Murk Wash Area; it is within an area subject to sheet flow and therefore is publishing this notice in compliance with Executive Order 11988 and the Floodplain Management Wetlands Protection Guildlines adpoted by the Water Resources Council.
This proposed project is located within the community of Pisinemo, which is located in the Pisinemo District of the Tohono O'odham Nation, Pima County, Arizona. The proposed project would consist of constructing 10 housing units on approximately 14.7 acres, 9 of which is undeveloped land, all subject to sheet flow.
There are three primary
purposes for this notice:
1) People who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their comments and provide information about these areas. Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites outside of the floodplain, alternative construction and design methods that still meet the project's purpose, and suggestions to minimize and mitigate impacts.
2) Public notices can be important public educational tools. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains can facilitate and enhance federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas.
3) As a matter of fairness, when the federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
The Tohono O'odham Ki:Ki Association is currently considering potential flood impacts from the proposed project and potential mitigation to minimize flood hazards. Additional information is available about this project and can be reviewed from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Tohono O'odham Ki:Ki Association office, located at 51 Baboquivari Circle, Sells, Arizona 85634. The office is handicapped accessible and persons with special accessiblity needs may call (520) 383-2202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested persons can also call or email for additional information about this proposed project.
The Tohono O'odham Ki:Ki Association invites the public to provide written comments on this proposed project. Comments should be mailed, postmarked by November 7, 2017, to Tohono O'odham Ki:Ki Association at the following address:
