Item 3. Greenwood Bay Condominiums

The advisory board asked to place a funding request for Greenwood Bay Condominiums on the agenda for this meeting. District staff met with County Counsel regarding the legality of contributing funding to the Condominium Homeowners Association project to renovate a retaining wall along Saltworks Canal. Because the retaining wall will be below the FEMA base flood elevation for the area, it was determined not to be appropriate for Flood Zone 4 to contribute funding to this project. However, there are opportunities where the Flood Zone can assist with remedying/mitigating the current situation and these will be discussed.

Action by Board: Revise the recommended scope and budget for the proposed design and environmental contract for Restoration of East and West Creeks to include the addition of an add-on option to design and permit a flood barrier up to 600 feet long, with a budget adjustment not to exceed $600,000 (a $200,000 increase from the Zone 4 Advisory Board’s January 23rd recommendation).
