North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Program funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) as a sub-recipient.


Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives, and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).


Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.


Sub-Applicant: North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission


Project Title: Boating Access Area


Location of Proposed Work:

Facility and Address



Federal Point Boating Access Area; 2515 Fisher Blvd. Kure Beach, NC. 28449




Special Flood Hazard Area Zone: This project is for repairs to the Federal Point Boating Access Area, which is located in an VE Zone. Confirmation of location in VE Zone was determined by the latest Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel Number: 3720302700L. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of North Carolina and local floodplain regulations. The proposed work will be installed within the existing footprint and will have no effect on the local floodplain. The proposed work is located in wetland classification E2EM1Pd Estuarine and Marine Wetland and E1UBL Estuarine and Marine Deepwater, per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory. The actions will have little potential to impact or affect wetland values. There is a potential for the facility to be impacted by similar flooding events due to its location in a floodplain.


Proposed Work and Purpose:

North Carolina Wildlife Resource will use force-account labor to replace boat dock decking, fiberglass skid pads, wood frame and bulkhead cap. Repairs will restore the facility to the pre-disaster design, function, and capacity, and the action does not increase the risk of flood loss.


Project Alternatives:

Alternative #1 (no action alternative): The 'no action' alternative would ultimately result in a negative impact on the community. Repair the dock facilitates open space use in the floodplain.



Comment Period:

Comments are solicited from the public; local, state or federal agencies, and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed project. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to:


FEMA Internal 11988 Reviewer FEMA Region 4

Atlanta, Georgia, 30341


Alternatively, comments may be emailed to: Please send comments with the subject line [DR-4393-NC-01145 11988 COMMENT].


All comments are due by no later than 15 days of the posted date of this notice.
