Lee County, under Part 58, has determined that the following proposed action under the San Carlos Park Sidewalk and Canal Project, grant number IR014 is located in the 100-Year Floodplain and Floodway and Lee 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 HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands. This project consists of sidewalk repairs and drainage improvements. Proposed repairs in the Lee County right-of-way include driveway pipes and sidewalks, which are important assets for housing access, safety, and value. Drainage system improvements will include Irma-related silt and vegetation removal from canals, ditches, and drainage pipes to eliminate flow constrictions. This project will allow the County to complete restoration by clearing structural and debris constrictions in the drainage system that, if left, will negatively affect low-mod households during severe weather. It will also allow Lee County to devote more funding to improvements to control additional siltation in the Mulloch Creek basin and address resiliency planning and improvements. The project area will be approximately 21.67 acres of floodplain area and 6.86 acres of wetland. Approximately 8.47 acres of floodplain project area is in a designated floodway. Approximately 9.53 acres of the project area is located in a 100-year floodplain. Approximately 3.67 acres of the project area is located in a 500-year floodplain. The proposed project(s) is located at or near Cypress Point Road, Winged Foot Drive, Pebble Beach Road, Rockefeller Circle, San Carlos Blvd, Sanibel Blvd, Iris Road, Constitution Circle, Constitution Blvd, East Carnegie Circle, Laurel Valley Road, Garry Road, Doral Drive, Albany Road, Barragan Rd, Myrtle Road, Ostego Drive and Meadow Lake Circle in Fort Myers, Lee County.
San Carlos Park Project Floodplain Management Process
Two applications for drainage projects through the Department of Economic Opportunity are available for public review. The Rebuild Florida General Infrastructure Program (GIP) is administered by the State of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). This Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant - Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) allocation as described in Public Law 115-123. Lee County is applying to the CDBG-MIT-GIP cycle II with a project in the GS-10 Drainage Basin and a project in the Iona McGregor Drainage District. The goal of these projects is to mitigate critical existing surface water management issues, to improve living environments, and to expand economic opportunities for low-to-moderate income persons with grant funds provided by HUD.
- $ 11,025,000 million: Lee County will request funding to build a filter marsh, add weirs, and create water storage within an existing lake in east Lee County to mitigate the risk of flooding in Lehigh Acres and other areas of unincorporated east Lee County. This project will also improve water quality, restore more natural flows to the Greenbriar Swamp and the headwaters of Hickey Creek, and improve storm water management for Hickey and Bedman creeks.
-$3.2 million: Reestablish 6 miles of Iona McGregor Drainage District canals to original cross-sections, which includes removal of vegetation and silt.
