Project is located in the VE Zone, otherwise known as the Coastal High Hazard Area, per Flagler County FIRM Panel #12035C0144 E dated 06/06/2018.

Proposed Work and Purpose:

Beverly Beach repaired multiple wooden beach dune walkovers and a seawall that were 

damaged as a result of Hurricane Matthew.  The county obtained FDEP Authorizations for the work and has confirmed compliance with permit conditions.

Project Alternatives:

The alternative that has been considered is the no action alternative.  This alternative is

not feasible as the area will remain vulnerable to flood risk, including property damage 

and hazards to human life and safety.  With the no action alternative, continued negative

impacts on adjacent infrastructure, property, residents and the community may be

experienced.  Alternative locations were not considered as the beach dune walkovers and

seawall are functionally dependent upon its location within the floodplain.  The walkovers

also provide access to the beach which provides open space uses for recreation and

habitat for wildlife.


This will serve as the final public notice regarding the above-mentioned action funded by the FEMA PA program.  Interested persons may submit comments, questions, or request a map of this specific project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Region 4, 3003 Chamblee-Tucker Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30341, or by emailing  Comments should be sent in writing with the subject line FL-4283-PW-00983, Beverly Beach at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice.


An initial disaster-wide Public Notice was published November 21, 2016 for Hurricane Matthew.  Comments and other information received were fully evaluated by FEMA along with evaluation of social, economic, environmental, and safety considerations.  This notice serves as a project-specific final notice for FEMA's funding action located within the floodplain.

​​The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has received the subgrant application for Beverly Beach's wooden  dune walkovers and seawall repairs due to damages from Hurricane Matthew (DR-4283-FL PW 00983).  Pursuant to Executive Order 11988 and 44 CFR Part 9.12, final notice is hereby given of FEMA's intent to provide funding for this project under the Public Assistance (PA) Program.

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.  This action complies with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) requirements.
