These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the Village of Canton.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about November 13, 2019 the Village of Canton will submit a request to the Office of Community Renewal for the release of CDBG funds under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake a project known as assistance to Dairy Queen for the purpose of providing $195,000 in assistance as part of a $972,964 project to rebuild a burnt out structure and replace equipment at 51 Gouverneur Street, Canton, NY owned by Audrey Guthrie, Inc. d/b/a Dairy Queen.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The Village of Canton has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the Village Clerk’s office at 60 Main Street, Canton, NY 13617 and may be examined or copied weekday’s 8A.M to 4P.M.
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Canton Office of Economic Development, 60 Main Street, Canton, NY 13617. All comments received by November 12, 2019 will be considered by the Village of Canton prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.
The Village of Canton certifies to the Office of Community Renewal that Michael E. Dalton in his capacity as Mayor, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The Office of Community Renewal’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Village of Canton to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Office of Community Renewal will accept objections to its release of fund and the Village of Canton certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the Village of Canton (b) the Village of Canton has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the Office of Community Renewal; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Crystal Loffler, Acting President, at Office of Community Renewal, Hampton Plaza, 38-40 State Street, 4th Floor, Albany, NY 12207. Potential objectors should contact the Office of Community Renewal to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
Michael E. Dalton, Mayor
