Public Comment

Nathan Forrester- Consideration of a variance request at 308 West Palestine Avenue

Adjourn

The meeting is open to the public.

The Town of Obion is seeking bids for the construction of a new Public Works shop building. Specifications must be obtained from Obion City Hall 137 East Palestine Ave. Obion, TN. We reserve the right to refuse any and all bids.

The Town of Obion has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funding through the Tennessee Emergency Management (TEMA) as a sub-recipient.

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 a 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 and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

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.

Applicant: Town of Obion

Project Title: Obion Drainage Improvements

Location of Proposed Work:  Within the Boundaries of the Town of Obion.  The drainage areas are located in the following areas:

  1. East Johnson Avenue
  2. 17th St, Broadway Street
  3. Hurt Avenue
  4. Hurt Road
  5. Palestine Avenue
  6. Main Street
  7. Troy Road
  8. Obion Avenue
  9. 11th Street
  10. 10th Street

Name of Structure:  (8) drainage ditch segments, (5) stream segments, (1) detention pond, and (2) box culverts within the boundaries of Town of Obion.

Point of Contact: Jana Fluty; (731) 536-6242 / [email protected]

Special Flood Hazard Area Zone: This project is for drainage improvements located in flood zones AE and X. Confirmation of location in an SFHA was made by reference to the latest Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel 47131C0339C and 47131C0343C. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of Tennessee and local floodplain regulations. The proposed work will include the cleanout of drainage ditches and streams, replace undersized box culverts, and construct a detention pond. The proposed project will improve the conditions within the floodplains during regular rain events.

Proposed Work and Purpose:

The Town of Obion is requesting funds to cleanout drainage ditches and streams, replace undersized box culverts, and construct a detention pond. The purpose of this project is to protect future loss property and health and safety hazards posed by flooding.

 Project Alternatives: 

Alternative #1 (no action alternative): If the Town of Obion does not pursue drainage mitigation measures, regular and localized flooding will escalate with rain each event. Backups caused by debris in ditches and streams as well as undersized culverts will continue to impede drainage flows. Sheet flows over roads present dangers to drivers and prevent residents from reaching their homes or destinations. Ponding in yards and water in crawlspaces will continue to plague property owners and decrease property values. These risks and damages must be mitigated.

Alternative #2: Comprehensive Drainage Mitigation Study Project involving hydrologic studies and sizable recommendations like levees and large detention areas. A study of this magnitude could cost over $750,000. This is an endeavor the Town hopes to pursue in the future, however, the Town cannot afford to embark on a study of this size and still have funds to address the needed costly mitigation measures. Additionally, the study does not immediately address the regular and localized flooding that is plaguing the Town at this time.

Alternative #3: (selected alternative) The Town of Obion has determined that the drainage mitigation project that is most feasible at this time is one that directly effects regular and localized flooding during 10 year rain events. The proposed improvements include the replacement of two culverts, cleanout of drainage ditches and streams, as well as construction of a detention pond.  The proposed project includes NEPA, design, and construction activities.

Comment Period:

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 Town of Obion. All comments are due within 30 days of this notice. The Town of Obion 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:
