This Notice shall satisfy the above-cited two separate but related procedural notification requirements.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about December 15, 2011 Plumas County will submit a request to the California Department of Housing and Community Development for the release of Community Development Block Grant Program funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake a project known as Public Facilities - New Construction, Plumas Rural Services for the purpose of constructing a building, to be located off Hwy 70 on Radio (Cemetery) Hill, Quincy, to house multiple vital services including but not limited to: a day program and support services for developmentally disabled adults; intake, counseling and related services for battered spouses; therapeutic services for abused and neglected children, in addition to providing nutrition assistance for families with young children. The facility will be approximately 3100 sq. ft. with a total development cost of $800,000.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
Plumas County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at Plumas County Community Development Commission, 183 W. Main St. Quincy, CA and may be examined or copied weekdays 8 A.M. to 12 P.M. and 1 P.M. to 5 P.M.
Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments to Plumas County, c/o the Plumas County Community Development Commission, P.O. Box 319 Quincy, CA 95971. All comments received by December 15, 2011 will be considered by Plumas County prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Commentors should specify which part of this Notice they are addressing.
RELEASE OF FUNDS
Plumas County certifies to the California Department of Housing and Community Development that David Keller in his capacity as Executive Director consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The California Department of Housing and Community Development's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows Plumas County to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
The California Department of Housing and Community Development will consider objections to its release of funds and Plumas County's certification received by December 30, 2011 or a period of fifteen days from its receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer or other officer of Plumas County approved by the California Department of Housing and Community Development; (b) Plumas County has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the California Department of Housing and Community Development; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.
