TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:

On or about February 17, 2020 the Town of Leo-Cedarville will request the release federal funds from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) for Community Development Block Grant Funds from the State of Indiana under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (P.L. 93-383) for the following project:

The Leo-Cedarville Streetscape Enhancement Project

The project will consist of streetscape improvements to include the installation of new sidewalks, pavement restoration and resurfacing, new street lights, sign posts, planter boxes, drainage upgrades, and acquisition of frontage for parking and a gathering area.

Location of Project: Streetscape improvements will occur along both east and west sides of a two-block section along Center Street (SR 1/Leo Road) beginning at the corner of Walnut Street, including a segment of Main Street from approximately 120-ft. west of Center Street, and ending at the intersection at Hosler Road.

 Estimated Cost of Project: $1,178,772

 Finding of No Significant Impact:

It has been determined that such request for release of funds will not constitute an action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and accordingly the above-named Town of Leo-Cedarville has decided not to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (P.L. 91-190).  The reasons for such decision not to prepare such statement are as follows:

All preliminary environmental reviews by state and county agencies indicated that the proposed project would not endanger the environment under any capacity.

An Environmental Review Record regarding the proposed project has been made by the above named Town of Leo-Cedarville which documents the environmental review of the project and more fully sets forth the reasons why such statement is not required. This Environmental Review Record is on file at the above address and is available for public examination and copying upon request the Leo-Cedarville Town Hall between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday. No further environmental review of such project is proposed to be conducted prior to the request for release of funds.

Public Comments of Findings

All interested agencies, groups, and persons disagreeing with this decision are invited to submit written comments for consideration by the Town of Leo-Cedarville to the Leo-Cedarville Town Hall, 13909 Pony Express Run, P.O. Box 408, Leo, Indiana 46765. Such written comments should be received by February 16, 2020. All such comments so received will be considered and the Town of Leo-Cedarville will not request the release of federal funds or take any administrative action on the proposed project prior to the date specified in the preceding sentences.

Release of Funds

The Town of Leo-Cedarville will undertake the project described above with Community Development Block Grant funds from the State of Indiana under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. The Town of Leo-Cedarville is certifying to the State that the Town of Leo-Cedarville and John Eastes, in his official capacity as Council President consents to accept the jurisdiction of the federal courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to environmental reviews, decision making, and action; and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certification is that upon its approval the Town of Leo-Cedarville may use the Block Grant funds and the State will have satisfied its responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969.

 Objections to State Release of Funds

The State will accept an objection to its approval only if it is on one of the following basis: (a) that the certification was not in fact executed by the certifying officer or other officer of applicant approved by the State; or (b) that the applicant’s environmental review record for the project indicated omission of a required review process. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedure (24 CFR Part 58) and may be addressed to the OCRA, Environmental Specialist, One North Capitol, Suite 600, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204 – 2288.

Objections to the release of funds on basis other that those stated above will not be considered by the State. No objections received after March 3, 2020 will be considered by the State.
