CITY OF BROCKTON THROUGH THE BROCKTON REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS
These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the Brockton Redevelopment Authority. On or about May 18th, 2019 the Brockton Redevelopment Authority (BRA) will submit a request to the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act (42 U.S.C. 12701 et seq.), to undertake a project known as Lincoln School Senior Housing for the purpose of redeveloping the property into a 39 units (3 SRO & 36 1-BR) of senior housing located at 70 Highland Street in Brockton, MA. This project proposes to absorb $100,000 of the City of Brockton’s HOME funds. The BRA has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at BRA’s office located at 50 School Street, 2nd Floor and may be examined or copied weekdays 8:30 A.M. to 5:00P.M. Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the BRA. All comments received by May 17th, 2019 will be considered by the BRA prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing. Comments can be sent by US Postal Service to 50 School Street, 2nd Floor, Brockton, MA 02301 or by e-mail at email@example.com. The BRA certifies to HUD that Bill Carpenter in his capacity as Mayor of Brockton consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Brockton Redevelopment Authority to use Program funds. HUD will accept objections to its release of fund and the BRA’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the BRA; (b) the BRA has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD/State; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the office of Community Planning and Development at 10 Causeway Street Room 535 Boston, MA 02222. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
