Comments Sought on Miami Feasibility Studies

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a combined National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) public scoping meeting on December 5th for both the Miami-Dade County Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) Feasibility Study and the Miami-Dade Back Bay CSRM Feasibility Study.

“Scoping” is the step at the beginning of the NEPA process when the public is invited to participate in identifying issues, alternatives, and potentially significant effects to be considered in the analysis.

The information gathered at scoping meetings and during the public comment period will aid in determining the scope of the NEPA analysis and any potentially significant issues, reported the Corps.

USACE also added that the NEPA process will also identify alternatives and information needed to evaluate alternatives, and will help the Corps identify and eliminate from detailed study any issues that are not significant or that have been covered by prior environmental review.

The format of the meeting will be an open-house that will include informational poster boards and a presentation beginning at 4:30 p.m. The public can attend any time during the meeting hours (4 to 7 p.m.) and staff from both project teams will be available to answer questions and receive written comments from the public.

USACE will accept public scoping comments for both projects until January 9, 2019.
