NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST THE RELEASE OF FUNDS AND

NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

2018 COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT

Date: October 29, 2018

Name: City of Thornton

Address: 9500 Civic Center Drive,

Thornton, Colorado 80229-4326

Phone: 303-538-7600

These notices are intended to meet two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the City of Thornton, for the Request for Release of Funds (RROF) and the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).

REQUEST FOR THE RELEASE OF FUNDS

The week of November 26, 2018 the City of Thornton will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Region VIII, Denver, Colorado, as applicable on behalf of City of Thornton for the release of Community Development Block (CDBG) Program funds under 24 C.F.R. 570, Title I of the Housing and Community Development of the Act of 1974, as amended, to acquire property in a CDBG-eligible area for a future park and pay for the design of the park. This Public Facilities and Infrastructure Improvement project will be funded with $525,000 of 2018 CDBG funds.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

The City of Thornton has determined that the projects will have no significant impact on the human environment.  An Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) for the CDBG Program 24 C.F.R. Part 58, therefore, is not required. However, the City will complete Environmental Review Records (ERR) to carry out its Environmental Responsibility and to meet NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) Procedures.  Additional program, projects and activities determination and/or information are contained in the ERR and the Environmental Assessment Review Guidelines which support the FONSI and are on file at the City of Thornton.  These can be reviewed by writing a request and/or contacting Neighborhood Services, at 9500 Civic Center Drive, Thornton, Colorado, 80229 or 303-538-7600 or cdbg@cityofthornton.net.  These environmental records are available for review, copy and/or examination during normal business hours 8 A.M. to 5 P.M., Monday through Friday.

PUBLIC COMMENTS FOR FONSI OR RROF

Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments to Neighborhood Services staff at the City of Thornton as designated above.  All comments received within 15 days of this notice, but not later than November 26, 2018 by 5:00 P.M., will be considered by the City of Thornton prior to authorizing submission of a RROF or FONSI to the U.S. Department of HUD. 

RELEASE OF FUNDS

The City of Thornton certifies to HUD that Mr. Kevin Woods 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 approval of the RROF and FONSI certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the City of Thornton to use allocated CDBG Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO THE RELEASE OF FUNDS

HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Thornton's RROF and FONSI certifications 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 made on one of the following bases:  (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Thornton; (b) the City of Thornton 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 has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before the 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 program, project and/or activity is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.  Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures of 24 CFR Part 58 and shall be addressed to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Region VIII Office, Attention: Field Environmental Officer, 25th Floor, 8ADE, 1670 Broadway Street, Colorado 80202-4801.  Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
