Public Notice CITY OF WESTMINSTER NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS Date of Notice: December 7, 2017 Name of Responsible Entity [RE]: City of Westminster, Colorado Address: Department of Economic Development 4800 West 92nd Avenue Westminster, CO 80031 Telephone: 303-658-2111 These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the City of Westminster, Colorado. REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about December 27, 2017, the City of Westminster will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended; 42 U.S.C.-530.1 et. Seq., to undertake a project known as Demolition and New Construction at 7225 Bradburn Boulevard for the purpose of demolishing two existing structures located at 7225 Bradburn Boulevard, Westminster, CO 80030 and to clear the land in order to construct up to four attached or detached affordable housing units. The estimated project cost is $1,150,000. FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT The City of Westminster 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. A review of the compliance and conformance determinations of the statutes, executive orders, and regulations found at 24 CFR 50.4, 58.5, and 58.6 found that formal compliance steps or mitigation is required for noise abatement and control per the Noise Control Act of 1972 as amended by the Quiet Communities Act of 1978; 24 CFR Part 51 Subpart B. In order to mitigate the potential impacts of indoor noise levels, noise reducing materials and techniques that provide attenuation at a minimum of 10dB above normal construction practices must be incorporated into the design of the structures. The design of outdoor communal areas will require mitigation to ensure noise levels are 65dB or less. Additionally, all housing units must be constructed within the devised building footprint created by the City of Westminster showing an allowable footprint that is below 75dB. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at City of Westminster, City Hall 4800 West 92nd Avenue, Westminster, CO 80031 and may be examined or copied weekdays, Monday through Thursday, 7:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M. PUBLIC COMMENTS Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the City of Westminster Department of Economic Development or to hruddy@cityofwestminster.us. All comments received by December 26, 2017 will be considered by the City of Westminster prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing. ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION The City of Westminster certifies to HUD that Donald M. Tripp in his capacity as City Manager 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. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City of Westminster to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Westminster’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual 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 of the City of Westminster; (b) the City of Westminster 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 development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; 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. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to HUD’s administration office at Community Development, Region VIII Office, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 1670 Broadway Street, Denver, Colorado 80202-4801. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period. Donald M. Tripp, City Manager City of Westminster, Certifying Officer Legal Notice No.: 68149
