Environmental Assessment for Cedar Rapids 2nd Street SE Parkade, Cedar Rapids, Iowa (October 2012)

Main Content

On May 27, 2008, President George W. Bush declared a major disaster in the State of Iowa (1763-DR-IA) pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. Section 5121-5206. The incident period began on May 25, 2008 and closed August 13, 2008. Pursuant to Section 406 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5172), as amended, the City of Cedar Rapids (hereon, “Subgrantee”) has requested funding through the FEMA Public Assistance Program. The Subgrantee requests that in lieu of repairing the 5-in-1 Hydroelectric facility, the capped eligible funding for the alternate project will be applied toward a new parking facility to improve parking capacity in downtown Cedar Rapids.  Construction is planned to commence in March 2013 and to be completed in February of 2014 if FEMA deems the project practicable. The Subgrantee requests this alternate project in lieu of repairing the existing 5-in-1 Hydroelectric facility repetitively damaged by flood waters. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires that Federal agencies evaluate the environmental effects of proposed and alternative actions before deciding to fund an action. The President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has developed a series of regulations for implementing the NEPA. These regulations are included in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 1500–1508.
