Permit Application Public Notices

Public involvement is a key element of the Corps’ permit review process. During an application review, the USACE, Regulatory Division considers the views of other federal, state and local agencies, Native American tribes, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this careful public interest review are fair and equitable decisions that allow reasonable use of private property, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy, while offsetting the authorized impacts to the waters of the United States. This is accomplished through the posting of a Public Notice on the USACE, Regulatory Division's website and soliciting comments.

The USACE, Regulatory Division publishes monthly a list of individual permits issued, denied, or pending during the previous month. The list will identify each action by public notice number, name of applicant, and brief description of activity involved. It will also note the relevant environmental documents and the Statements of Findings (SOF) or Records of Decision (ROD) that are available upon written request through the FOIA process and, where applicable, upon the payment of administrative fees.

POA-2014-120, Kotzebue Sound

Published Nov. 19, 2015
Expiration date: 12/17/2015

The Native Village of Kotzebue's stated purpose is transportation improvements to enhance the year-round useablity, safety, and accessibility of subsistence areas along Ted Stevens Way (TSW) and Cemetery Hill Road (CHR). The proposed project would upgrade the road prism and parking lot of the 0.11 mile long CHR, and repair/improve the 4.1 miles of TSW between CHR and the intersection with Air Force Road.  The proposed CHR rehabilitation to allow for year-round accessibility to the cemetery would include increasing the driving surface to a consistent 22 feet, with a 10 foot parking lane extending the length of the road; standardizing the parking area to accommodate cemetery visitor parking; and improving drainage.  Improvements to TSW would include softening the side slopes from 2H:1V to 4H:1V, widening the road surface to a consistent 24 feet to allow for easier passage of two vehicles, adding six pullouts for subsistence user parking, extending 23 culverts to accommodate the widened right-of-way, reshaping the outlet of three culverts, and adding one new culvert. Please contact Ms. Heather Markway at (907) 753-2797, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.
