NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Kyle, Texas will hold a public hearing at the Kyle City Council Chambers, located at 100 West Center Street, Kyle, Texas on January 3, 2017 at 7:00 p.m., to consider the amendment of land use assumptions, a capital improvements plan, and imposition of an updated water and wastewater impact fee for new or expanded services from the Kyle water and/or wastewater utility systems.

The water and wastewater impact fee will be applicable within the City of Kyle ETJ boundary shown in the map below.  Within this area, the revised impact fee may be levied in-full or in-part, depending on the service arrangement and in no way obligates the City to extend service beyond its incorporated area.  The maximum amount of impact fee that can be charged per living unit equivalent (LUE) is $3,535 for water service and $2,826 for wastewater service. The exact amount of the impact fees to be levied, at or below the maximum, will be determined by the Kyle City Council subsequent to the Public Hearing.

Any member of the public has the right to appear at the hearing and present evidence for or against the update.  Information on prospective growth, land use assumptions, and capital improvements that were used to calculate the maximum fee amount is available from the City of Kyle Finance Department offices, located at 100 West Center Street, Kyle, Texas, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during weekdays except on City holidays.

Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed

Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland

To:  All interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals

This is to give notice that the City of Kyle has determined that the following proposed action under Texas Capital Fund Grant (funding pending), is located in Zone A of the 100-year floodplain and wetland, and the City will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action in the floodplain and wetland and the potential impacts on the floodplain and wetland from the proposed action, as required by Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands.

 

Public Improvements:

City of Kyle, Texas is working with a company that wishes to locate a large commercial laundry plant and line/uniform service facility in Kyle and will be a relatively large user of water and sewer service. The project will create jobs principally for LMI persons.  The anticipated sewer flows are estimated at 115,000 GPD. There are wastewater collection capacity issues (a bottleneck in the existing collection system) that must be addressed through additional public infrastructure (sanitary sewer construction).

 

The existing Southlake Sewer Lift Station and force main are inadequately sized to meet current demand, resulting in surcharged manholes and potential bypassing.  The line is inadequate to accept additional volume that will be generated by the business, Alsco, Inc.

 

To avoid overloading the existing Southlake Sewer Lift Station the construction of a new interceptor sewer main is proposed.  The proposed interceptor sewer will be installed to bypass the Southlake Lift Station and transport wastewater via gravity sewer to the Bunton Creek Sewer Lift Station.  An 8-inch diameter gravity sewer is considered the “minimum necessary” improvements to meet the needs of the business. Elective upsizing is under consideration by the City, and may result in the City constructing a 30-inch diameter pipeline at this location due to the size of the drainage area and projected future growth in the Bunton Creek Area.

 

Private Improvements:

Alsco, Inc. will develop a linen and uniform laundry service and distribution facility on a site at 3751 Kyle Crossing, Kyle, Texas, and has committed to create 66 new FTE permanent jobs. The facility will include construction of a building, as well as driveways and parking spaces.

 

Construction of the sewer main will take place along an easement from South Lake Lift Station to Bunton Creek Lift Station. 

Contractor shall carry out all acquisition of needed real property, easements, and/or rights-of-way in compliance with the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (42 U.S.C. Sec. 4601 et. seq.) and HUD implementing regulations (24 C.F.R. Part 42).

 

The proposed project is located in the City of Kyle, Texas.  Approximately 3.28 acres  of the project is located in Zone A of the 100-year floodplain and approximately 0.97 acres of the project is located in the wetland.

 

There are three primary purposes for this notice.  First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and wetlands and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas.  Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites outside of the floodplain and wetland, alternative methods to serve the same project purpose, and methods to minimize and mitigate impacts.  Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains and wetlands can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains and wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.

 

Written comments must be received by the City of Kyle at the following address on or before November 25, 2016, City of Kyle, 100 West Center Street, Kyle, Texas 78640, Attention:  Ms. Jennifer Vetrano, City Secretary.  A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at the address above.
