Re: Second Appeal—San Diego County, PA ID 073-99073-00, Slope Repairs, FEMA 1952-DR-CA, Project Worksheet (PW) 918
Dear Secretary Ghilarducci:
This letter is in response to your letter dated July 16, 2012, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of San Diego County (Applicant). The Applicant appealed the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) decision to deny slope repairs that occurred at two sites along Belvedere Drive.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined the uphill slope on Belvedere Drive is an eligible facility. Minimal slope restoration is eligible to restore the identified areas to pre-disaster condition. However, the requested construction of a retaining wall at Site 2 exceeds the scope of work necessary to repair the disaster damage and is not eligible. Accordingly, I am partially approving this appeal for $12,942 of permanent work. By copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Administrator to take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
