Location: 2639 S 58th St., Philadelphia, PA

Estimated Cost: The total development cost is $36,630,099. The project will receive $5,000,000 in Public Housing Capital funding and $1,000,000 in Choice Neighborhood funding.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The City of Philadelphia 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) on file at the offices of the
Philadelphia City Planning Commission,
1515 Arch Street, 13th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19102.
The ERR is available to review and copy in person at this address. Copies of the ERR may also be requested electronically by emailing planning@phila.gov; or by U.S. mail by mailing a request to the above address.

PUBLIC COMMENTS
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the City of Philadelphia. All comments received by April 25, 2024, will be considered by the City prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION
The City of Philadelphia certifies to HUD that John Mondlak, in his capacity as Interim Director of the Philadelphia Department of Planning and Development, 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. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Philadelphia Housing Authority to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City’s certification for a period of 15 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 (b) the City 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 HUD; 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 to Release of Funds must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures at 24 CFR Part 58.76 and shall be addressed to the Director, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Philadelphia Field Office at PhilaPIH@hud.gov. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
