Second-Story Conversion – Elevation Project Design Considerations for Hazard Mitigation Assistance Applicants

This fact sheet identifies project design considerations that should be taken into account when developing alternative types of Hazard Mitigation Assistance-funded elevation projects that typically involve second story conversion of a residential building and the abandonment of the lower non-elevated floor as living space. The intent is to increase awareness of these design considerations on the part of NFIP policyholders, private insurance vendors and state and local floodplain management officials.

FEMA City of Pasadena, Texas Street Drainage & Flood Mitigation Project - Draft Environmental Assessment - APPENDIX D

APPENDIX D - EIGHT-STEP NARRATIVE FOR FLOODPLAINS (EXECUTIVE ORDER 11988 AND 44 CFR, PART 9)
Executive Order 11988 (Floodplain Management) requires federal agencies “to avoid to the extent possible the long-and short-term adverse impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of the floodplain and to avoid direct or indirect support of floodplain development wherever there is a practicable alternative.” FEMA’s implementing regulations are at 44 CFR Part 9, which includes an eight-step decision-making process for compliance with this part. This eight-step process is applied to the proposed City of Pasadena Street Drainage and Flood Mitigation Project since the project is located partially within the 100-year floodplain of Vince Bayou and Little Vince Bayou.
The City of Pasadena is proposing a drainage/flood mitigation project within the City of Pasadena, Harris County, Texas. Elevations within right-of-way (ROW) at selected roadways will be lowered to create storm water storage, and along with the installation of detention ponds, these proposed improvements will provide flood mitigation at the project sites and their surrounding areas. The City has been granted funds for the project from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) under project number FEMA-4332-DR-TX Project #007.
