Final Public Notice

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has received the subgrant application for repairs to Immaculata La

Salle High School due to damages in Hurricane Irma (DR‐4337‐FL PW 6437). Pursuant to Executive Order 11988 and 44

CFR Part 9.12, final notice is hereby given of FEMA’s intent to provide funding for this project under the Public Assistance

(PA) Program.

An initial disaster‐wide Public Notice was published October 6, 2017 for Hurricane Irma. Comments and other information

received were fully evaluated by FEMA along with evaluation of social, economic, environmental, and safety

considerations. This notice serves as a project‐specific final notice for FEMA’s funding action located within the floodplain.

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. This action complies with the National Flood

Insurance Program (NFIP) requirements.

Responsible Entity:FEMA Public Assistance (PA) Program

Applicant:Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami

Project Title(s): 31579 ‐ CR1 ‐ Immaculata La Salle High School ‐ 100% Co

Location of Proposed Work:25.742907, ‐80.213060

Floodplain:Project is located in the AE Zone, otherwise known as the area of 1% annual chance of

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

minimize damages during future incident periods.

Project Alternatives:The alternative that has been considered is the no action alternative. The no‐action

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.

a map of this specific project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency,

Region 4, 3003 Chamblee‐Tucker Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30341, or by emailing FEMAR4EHP@ Comments should be sent in writing with the subject line FL‐4337‐
