Re: Second Appeal Town of Kitty Hawk; PA ID # 055-36060
Oceanfront Beaches, FEMA-1490-DR-NC
Dear Ms. Canty:
This letter is in response to the referenced second appeal transmitted by your letter dated December 22, 2004. In their appeal, the Town of Kitty Hawk (Applicant) requested an increase in the volume of sand allowed to restore its barrier dunes and protective berms. The Applicant also requested a reclassification from emergency work to permanent work and a time extension.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant has demonstrated that there is a basis for an increase in the volume of sand to restore its protective berms to provide for a 5-year level of protection, with maximum allowable volumes of 6 CY/LF. Additionally, the project is properly categorized as emergency work and the Applicant provided justification of extenuating circumstances for a time extension. Therefore, the appeal is partially approved. By copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Director to prepare a Project Worksheet to fund the eligible scope of work described in the enclosed analysis.
Please inform the Applicant of my determination. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter as set forth in 44 CFR §206.206.
