NOTICE OF DECISION OF “NO PRACTICABLE ALTERNATIVE” TO PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN THE FLOODPLAIN
The Town of Millinocket, Maine published on Wednesday, July 3, 2019, in this same newspaper a NOTICE OF A PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN A FLOODPLAIN on the Bates Street Sewer Replacement project.
The Town of Millinocket has completed a floodplain impact evaluation and it is available for review at the Millinocket Town Office located at 197 Penobscot Avenue, Millinocket, Maine, 207-723-7000. This review included consideration of project impacts, site mitigation, restoration or preservation, alternative actions and alternate sites. The Town of Millinocket concludes no practicable alternative exists to the proposal. Proceeding with the sewer replacement provides greater environmental improvement than any possible temporary impacts of crossing the wetland, and no permanent impacts are proposed.
Comments may be sent to John Davis, Town Manager, within 7 days of this publication. If no comments are received, the Town of Millinocket will conduct an environmental review on the project as described.
