Public Notice of Intent to Apply for CDBG-DR Grant - Tumblin Creek Improvements

The City of Gainesville is advertising its intent to apply for a grant under the Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program.  This grant is intended for projects in low and moderate income neighborhoods impacted by Hurricane Irma.

Project Description: This project addresses damages incurred by Hurricane Irma and provides improvements in a creek bed that due to its sandy nature has a high potential for erosion.  The improvements will provide for long-term structural integrity of the stormwater infrastructure and mitigation of future erosion.  The proposed project will reduce the amount of sediment transported downstream, thus reducing long term maintenance costs associated with sediment removal from the Tumblin Creek Sediment Trap and ensuring the stormwater infrastructure capacity is maximized and available to prevent negative impacts such as flooding from affecting nearby housing and other infrastructure such as roads and utilities. 

Project Estimated Construction Cost / Grant Request: $512,073 

Project Timeline: Construction in FY 2022

Public Comment: The public is invited to participate by submitting comments by sending an email to TumblinCreekImprovements-CDBG-DR@cityofgainesville.org. Emails must be received by 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 16 to be considered. The City of Gainesville will respond to all written correspondence received.
