FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The City of Celina 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) which is available for review on City of Celina's website at https://www.ci.celina.oh.us/ The ERR may also be provided upon request electronically via email. Please submit your request by U.S. mail to 225 N. Main Street, Celina, OH 45822 or by email to email@example.com
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the City of Celina by U.S. mail or email at the addresses above. All comments received before April 17, 2020, will be considered by the City of Celina prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.
The City of Celina certifies to the State of Ohio that Jeffrey Hazel 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 State of Ohio's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City of Celina to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
The State of Ohio will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Celina's 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 City of Celina; (b) the City of Celina 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 State of Ohio; 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 Ohio Development Services Agency, Office of Community Development at OCD@development.ohio.gov. Potential objectors should contact the State of Ohio to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
