Public Notice


October 19, 2019

To All Interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals:

Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) gives notice that Federal Regulation 24 CFR
Part 58 has determined that the following proposed action under the Home Investment Partnerships (HOME)
Program funds under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act is located in the 100-year
floodplain. Miami-Dade County will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action
in the floodplain and the potential impacts on the floodplain from the proposed action, as required by Executive
Order 11988, in accordance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations in
24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of
Wetlands. The proposed project is described, as follows:
• HTG Rainbow Housing, Ltd. - Father Marquess-Barry Apartments: The project will consist of the new
construction of a 60-unit garden-style affordable housing community for seniors 62 and older on a
1.39 acre site in the City of Miami's Overtown Community. It will consist of one three-story building.
The project site is located from 301 NW 17th Street, Miami, FL 33136. Folio #01-3136-065-0070.
The Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) number is 12086C0312L with the flood zone X and AH designation.
The area is comprised of 1.39 acres.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains
and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity
to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Commenters are encouraged to offer
alternative sites outside of the floodplain, alternative methods to serve the same project purpose, and methods
to minimize and mitigate impacts. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public
educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains can
facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and
modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines
it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or
continued risk.
Written comments must be received by Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development at the
following address on or before Saturday, November 2, 2019: Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community
Development, 701 NW 1st Court, 16 Floor, Miami, Florida 33136, Attention: Mr. Clarence Brown, Division
Director. A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the same
