STATEMENT OF FINDINGS AND PUBLIC EXPLANATION
Floodplain Management Executive Order (EO) 11988
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals
This is to give notice that the City of Yazoo City has analyzed the project identified below, as required by Presidential directive EO 11988 and determined that assistance should be granted therein. The proposed project consists of the following:
CONSTRUCTION OF YAZOO CITY AMTRAK STATION IN YAZOO CITY
The City of Yazoo City has determined there are no practical alternatives. The alternatives considered by the City are listed below:
1. No Action. This alternative will not remove existing non-compliant ADA conditions and concerns for safety.
2. Alternate design. This is possible; however, there are no environmental conditions that are significantly affected by the proposed train station.
3. Continue with project as planned. This alternative is the most advantageous. The train station will not significantly affect the environment.
The City of Yazoo City has determined that this project will not have a significant impact on the environment. The City recommends that the following mitigation measures should be used to minimize adverse environmental impacts and restore or enhance environmental quality.
The Contractor will obtain all necessary permits for the proposed project.
If any cultural resources are found during construction; construction will stop and MDAH will be contacted.
In the case where any unanticipated wetlands are discovered during construction; construction will stop and the CORPS will be notified.
Since this project is located in a base (100-year frequency) floodplain established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) EO 11988 may deny assistance to this project unless there is no practical alternative to doing so. An analysis by the City of Yazoo City indicates there is no practical alternative. The basis for this determination is as follows:
1. It is not possible to carry out the objectives of the TIGER program and participate in the growth plan of the community without participating in projects in the base floodplain;
2. The proposed construction will not displace or redirect flood waters to seriously impact other areas; and,
3. Construction will be in compliance with the Floodplain Management Plan prepared by the community as a condition of their participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.
