The Proposed Action, within the context of the EA, is to replace existing residential driveways with new driveways, along with upgrading and improving utility connections laterals or distributions within the 100-year floodplain at the Hurlburt Field Soundside Manor housing area. This represents a change from the May 2011 MHPI EIS, which analyzed the impacts from home construction within Soundside Manor and only limited housing demolition activities within the floodplain the EIS did not address these specific construction activities within th floodplain since they were not expected to impact the floodplain at that time. Based on an overlay of the proposed design layouts over the Federal Emergency Management Agency floodplain map 2013, an estimated 3,600 square feet SF of driveway would be located in the floodplain. Currently, approximately 2,200 SF of housing units, 8,100 SF of driveway, and 5, 700 SF of sidewalk are located in the floodplain. As part of demolition of existing homes and new construction, the estimated amount of housing unit square footage within the floodplain would be reduced to zero, and the amount of driveway and sidewalk square footage within the floodplain would be reduced to 3,600 SF and 4,800 SF, respectively.
