flooding, per Miami‐Dade County FIRM Panel #12086C0477L dated 09/11/2009.
Proposed Work and Purpose:Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami proposes to use FEMA Public Assistance Grant
funds to complete repairs to the educational facilities of Immaculata La Salle High School,
damaged as a result of Hurricane Irma. All of the damages to be repaired are above the
Base Flood Elevation. However, the gymnasium floor will be flood‐proofed to further

alternative would not be appropriate since it would limit the functionality of the
educational facilities, and have adverse social and economic impacts on the community.
