ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

The City of Guadalupe certifies to HCD that Mr. Robert Perrault in his capacity as Interim City Administrator 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. HCD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City of Guadalupe to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

 HCD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Guadalupe’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if it is on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Guadalupe; (b) the City of Guadalupe has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the City of Guadalupe or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HCD; 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 must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the Ben Metcalf, Executive Director, Department of Housing and Community Development, 2020 West El Camino Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95833.  Potential objectors should contact HCD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
