Five Seasons Transportation Bus Garage and Office Building, City of Cedar Rapids, Iowa (April 13, 2012)
Between June 11 and June 13, 2008, the Five Seasons Transportation Bus Garage and Office Building at 437 8th Street NW experienced damage from the flooding of the Cedar River and its tributaries along with large portions of Cedar Rapids and the surrounding area. On May 27, 2008, President Bush declared a major disaster in the State of Iowa. Pursuant to Section 406 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, the City of Cedar Rapids has requested funding through FEMA Public Assistance Program. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires that Federal agencies evaluate the environmental effects of their 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 NEPA. These regulations are included in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 1500–1508. An EA, as it relates to the FEMA program, must be prepared according to the requirements of the Stafford Act. This section of the Federal Code requires that FEMA take environmental considerations into account when authorizing funding or approving actions. This EA was conducted in accordance with both CEQ and FEMA regulations for NEPA and will address the environmental issues associated with proposed FEMA grant funding of eligible options to restore the Bus Garage function and capacity.
