The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Florida Division of Emergency Management have received the following application for Federal grant funding.

Funds will be provided in accordance with Section 404 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Public Law 93-288, as amended.
Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990 FEMA is required to consider alternatives to and to provide public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority or low-income populations.
Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.
City of Largo
HMGP-4337 (648) City of Largo Lift Station Flood Mitigation
Location of Proposed Work:
The area affected by this project consists of homes in the following locations:
(Lift Station No. 19) 12760 Indian Rocks Road, Largo, FL
(Lift Station No. 26) Doncaster Road, Unincorporated Pinellas County, FL
(Lift Station No. 41) 13880 Feathersound Drive, Unincorporated Pinellas County, FL
(Lift Station No. 47) 2272 Feathersound Drive, Unincorporated Pinellas County, FL
Proposed Work and Purpose:
The project proposes to elevate critical infrastructure above floodplain elevation at Lift Station Nos. 19, 26, 41 and 47. The scope of work includes raising wet wells, valve vaults, appurtenances and electrical equipment at the four lift stations to protect against the 500-year storm event. These lift stations are currently at risk during flooding events and high volumes of rain. The purpose of the project is to ensure continuity of operations during a 500-year storm event.
The alternatives to the project that have been and will be considered are 1) the no action alternative and 2) construct sealed enclosed structures around the existing lift stations. These alternatives to the proposed project are not viable because under Alternative 1) the continuity of the operations of the lift stations will continue to be at risk during high rain or flooding events and the needs of the community would not be served; and Alternative 2) is cost prohibitive, and therefore not practicable.
Comments are solicited from the public; local, state or federal agencies; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed project. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, Bureau of Recovery and Mitigation, 2555 Shumard Oak Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32399-2100. These are due within 15 days of this notice.The State will forward comments to applicable regulatory agencies as needed. Interested persons may submit comments, obtain more detailed information about the proposed action, or request a copy of the findings by contacting:
