Public Notice: Invitation for Public Review


May 19, 2005 – Commissioner Dean C. Plaskett, Esq., of the Department of Planning and Natural Resources announces that the Government of the Virgin Islands received Community Development Block Grant Funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to finance the following projects:
St. Thomas
Cruz Bay Public Restroom Improvements, Parcel A, Plot #1, Estate Cruz Bay, St. John, Flood Plain Map—Panel 40 of 90, 780000-0040E.
St. Croix
Caribbean Museum Improvements, #10 Strand Street, Frederiksted, St. Croix, Flood Plain Map – Panel 75 of 90, 780000-0075D.
Midre Cummings Recreation Facility, #2 Lagoon Street, Frederiksted, St. Croix, Flood Plain Map – Panel 75 of 90, 780000-0075D.
Since these projects are located in a base Flood Plain established by FEMA, HUD is required by Presidential Directive EO 11988 not to support them if there are any practicable alternatives to their development in the Flood Plain.
In this regard, the public is invited to submit their comments on whether there are any practical alternatives to these projects, or whether projects should be canceled because of their potential impacts on the Flood Plain. Suggestive ways of minimizing these potential impacts will be accepted. No comments shall be accepted after 15 days following this publication date.
The public may review the records between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at Cyril E. King Airport, 2nd Floor Terminal Bldg. St. Thomas, V.I., or at the DPNR Complex, #45 Mars Hill, Frederiksted, St.Croix. For additional information, contact Mr. Laurence Joshua at (340) 774-3320 ext. 5174.
