Meeting Date: 09/17/2020  
Submitted By: Justin Turner, Public Works

SUBJECT:
DISCUSSION OF HIGHLAND WASH FLOOD MITIGATION PROJECT
RECOMMENDATION:
N/A
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
The Stormwater Utility has been notified by the State of Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (DEMA) that the Highland Wash Flood Mitigation project was reviewed for feasibility and cost-effectiveness and was found to be technically feasible but not cost-effective; therefore, the National Technical Review Committee  recommended it not be given further consideration for the 2020 Funding cycle.
 
DEMA said the project scope of work was well-defined and clearly explained the activities necessary to complete the work, however the project schedule and cost estimate did not include all items necessary to complete the mitigation project, such as final design, construction services, easement costs, and engineering/survey already completed by the Town.  The notification also said the application was missing information for the reviewers to recreate, or to perform, a new the Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) for the project.
 
The Stormwater Utility has reviewed the Grant Application Review Summary and believe the deficiencies noted can be overcome, and a new favorable, and more-complete application, can be submitted. Accordingly, the Stormwater Utility will be submitting a Notice of Intent (NOI) for the Lower Highland Wash Flood Mitigation Project on September 18, 2020, for FEMA funding opportunities for either a Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant, or for a Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grant.
 
Updates will be provided as events unfold.
