Final Public Notice: Carolina Beach State Park Fishing Pier FEMA Project

The North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Program funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) 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 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 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.

 

Sub-Applicant: N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources

Project Title: 168551 – Carolina Beach State Park – Fishing Pier; PA-04-NC-4568-PW-00197

Location of Proposed Work:

Carolina Beach State Park Fishing Pier

1010 State Park Road
​Carolina Beach, NC 28428

​34.04945, -77.92015

Constructed in 2017

 

Special Flood Hazard Area Zone (SFHA):

This project is for the repair of the State Park Fishing Pier in Carolina Beach. The project is located within a Coastal High Hazard (VE) Zone. Confirmation of location in a Coastal High Hazard Zone was determined by the New Hanover County Effective Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel Number: 3720312100L, dated 8/28/2018. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of North Carolina and local floodplain regulations. There is a potential for the facility to be impacted by future flooding events due to its location within the Coastal High Hazard Zone. The proposed work will not take place in designated wetlands, per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory.
 

Proposed Work and Purpose:

North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources is requesting funds to repair the pier to pre-disaster condition, including removal and replacement of pilings, deck boards, railing, staircase, and ramp. The purpose of this action is to restore the pier to pre-disaster condition, allowing continued access for recreational activity, community engagement, and tourism.
 

Project Alternatives:

Alternative #1 (No Action): The "no action" alternative would ultimately result in a negative impact on the Carolina Beach community. The pier provides community access for recreational activity and increases community engagement tourism.

Alternative #2 (Repair in-kind): The pier is functionally dependent on its location and restoring the pier to pre-disaster condition preserves the beneficial value of the floodplain by providing recreational fishing access to the community.
 

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:

FEMA Internal 11988 Reviewer
FEMA Region 4
3003 Chamblee-Tucker Road
Atlanta, GA 30341

Alternatively, comments may be emailed to: FEMA-R4EHP@fema.dhs.gov. Please send comments with the subject line [DR-4568-NC-00197 11988 COMMENT].

All comments are due by no later than 30 days of the posted date of this notice.
