NOTICE OF PUBLIC NEEDS HEARINGS

CITY OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA

FISCAL YEAR 2022 ANNUAL ACTION PLAN

Notice is hereby given that the City of Pittsburgh is currently preparing its FY 2022 Annual Action Plan (April 1, 2022-March 31, 2023). The City will apply for the following Federal funds: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

In accordance with 24 CFR Part 91, et. al., and the City’s Citizen Participation Plan, the City intends to conduct several public needs hearings. The purpose of the needs hearings is to obtain the views and comments of individuals and organizations relative to housing and community development and fair housing needs that may be addressed by CDBG, HOME, ESG and HOPWA funds during the next year. We encourage community organizations of all missions and sizes to come out and learn how their efforts in the community can possibly be supported via CDBG funding. CDBG funds support

programming and housing development in low/moderate income areas (neighborhoods) of the City of Pittsburgh.

The City will hold public needs hearings at the times and locations noted below. The hearings are being held at various locations to provide all City residents with ample opportunity to attend and comment. Interested persons only need to attend one of the public hearings at the most convenient location.

The purpose of these public hearings is to:

  1. 1. Obtain the views and comments of individuals and organizations concerning the City’s housing and community development needs. The information gathered will be used in the preparation of the Annual Action Plan submission for the FY 2022 Program Year.
  2. 2. Review the City’s Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships, and Emergency Solutions Grants, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Programs and provide an opportunity for the public to comment on program performance.
  3. Summarize the Annual Action Plan process and obtain the views of citizens, public agencies, and others interested in the housing and community development needs of the City.

Based on last year’s funding, the City of Pittsburgh anticipates it will be notified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that it is eligible to receive the following entitlement grants in the following approximate amounts: $14,000,000 for CDBG; $2,300,000 for HOME; $1,200,000 for ESG; and $1,200,000 for HOPWA based on FY 2021. These funding levels are contingent upon the final approval of the Federal Budget for FY 2022 by Congress. The City doesn’t anticipate notice of its funding allocation until the Spring of 2022. In order to receive those funds, the City of Pittsburgh must prepare a One Year Annual Action Plan for the use of Federal funds.

RUNWAY SAFETY AREA 10-28 IMPROVEMENTS AT

ALLEGHENY COUNTY AIRPORT

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF

DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

NOTICE OF PUBLIC WORKSHOP/PUBLIC HEARING

Pursuant to Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations § 1506.6(b) notice is hereby given by the Allegheny County Airport Authority (ACAA) that a Draft Environmental Assessment (Draft EA) has been prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts to improve the Runway 10-28 Runway Safety Area (RSA) at the Allegheny County Airport (AGC) located in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania. The Proposed Project is recommended in order to meet standards and safety requirements as established by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for runways serving the types of aircraft that typically access AGC. The Proposed Project involves improvements to Runway 10- 28 and other related projects, including:

Expand the Runway 10 RSA

  • Install fill to extend RSA 335 feet and widen 500 feet across the new length. Taper from new RSA elevation to existing elevation at a 2:1 slope. Approximately 442,467 cubic yards of fill would require 24,582 dump truck trips (standard triaxle dump truck capacity is 18 cubic yards).
  • Install a 300-foot by 150-foot Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) bed.

Expand the Runway 28 RSA

  • Install fill to extend RSA 335 feet and widen 500 feet across the new length. Taper from new RSA elevation to existing elevation at a 2:1 slope. Approximately 61,239 cubic yards of fill would require 3,403 standard dump truck trips.
  • Install a 300-foot by 150-foot EMAS bed.

Expand a Portion of the mid-Runway RSA

  • Install 55,000 cubic yards of fill. Approximately 54,002 cubic yards of fill would require 3,001 standard dump truck trips.

Other Improvements

  • Remove existing, 10-foot-wide dirt airport service roads within the fill footprint
  • Establish new, 10-foot-wide dirt airport service roads to reconnect existing airport service road system
  • Relocate or extend groundwater monitoring wells within fill footprint at Runway 10 end; relocate existing utility pipeline at the Runway 28 end.
  • Relocate airport boundary fence at both ends of the runway along fill/new service roads.
  • Relocate FAA sheds, instrument landing system, medium approach light system with runway alignment indicator lights system, and localizer array, at end of Runway 28, and runway end identifier lights at the Runway 10 end.
  • Modify the existing airport stormwater management system as necessary to accommodate the Proposed Project. Further engineering of stormwater management features will be the result of ongoing site planning and permitting processes, but may include the relocation and installation of ditches, swales, and culverts channeling stormwater into existing retention ponds.
  • Clear trees and vegetation and remove objects within the Proposed Project footprint. This includes 36 acres at the Runway 10 end and 48 acres at the Runway 28 end and mid-runway location. The cleared and graded areas would be replanted to minimize erosion and the RSA area would be maintained as pavement and grass per FAA design guidelines.

Beginning on February 27, 2022, the Draft EA will be available for public review through April 4, 2022 at the following locations:

  • Online at https://flypittsburgh.com/allegheny-county-airport/

runway-safety-area-improvements-at-allegheny-county-airport-agc/

  • AGC’s Airport Office at 12 Allegheny County Airport, West Mifflin, PA 15122. Please call (412) 466-3026 to schedule a date/time to review the Draft EA.

ACAA will provide a hardcopy or flash drive of the Draft EA and/or the Public Workshop presentation upon request. Please call (412) 476-2000 or email AGC.RSA.EA@gaiconsultants.com to request a copy of the materials.
