Federal Emergency Management Agency

Acquisition and Demolition of Substantially Damaged Structures
Notification is hereby given to the public of the intent of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide Hazard Mitigation Assistance funding to the Town of Greenburgh in Westchester County, New York.   
The proposed project is the voluntary acquisition and demolition of one (1) property. The property was substantially damaged by flood waters from Hurricane Irene on August 27th and 28th, 2011 or Tropical Storm Lee on September 7th and 8th, 2011. The subject property is located within the base, or one percent chance floodplain (also known as the 100-year floodplain) of the Saw Mill River.
The overall purpose of the action is to remove structures from the floodplain and create open space for the restoration and preservation of natural beneficial floodplain functions. The Town of Greenburgh proposes to acquire the property, demolish all structures and grade and seed the parcels. After demolition and site restoration, the property will be maintained in perpetuity as open space. The property owner has agreed to voluntarily participate in this program.
Pursuant to federal Executive Orders 11988 (Floodplain Management) and 11990 (Protection of Wetlands), interested persons may obtain additional information regarding this action by contacting FEMA Region II Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, Leo O’Brien Federal Building, 11A Clinton Square, Room 742, Albany, New York 12206-5421. Comments should be submitted in writing at the above address within 15 days of this notice.
