On or after July 18, 2023, the Nevada Tahoe Conservation District will submit a request to the HUD Program Office for the release of Community Project Funding funds under 14.251 of the Economic Development Initiative FY2023 to undertake the following project: 

Tier 1 Broad Review Project/Program Title: Kahle Drive Complete Street 

Purpose: Rehabilitate 0.5 miles of road into a “complete street” to improve stormwater drainage and treatment and adding multi-modal transportation options. 

Location: Stateline, NV, specific addresses will be assessed in the site-specific reviews. 

Project/Program Description: The project proposes to transform Kahle Drive into a “complete street” by improving stormwater drainage and treatment, repairing wastewater infrastructure, adding sidewalks, bike lanes, crosswalks, and intersection safety improvements, and undergrounding overhead utilities and improving broadband quality. The rehabilitation of Kahle Drive will occur largely in the same footprint of the current road. The road will shift five feet to the north to allow for space for a five-foot-wide sidewalk within the Douglas County right-of-way. Additionally, a section of the Stateline-to-Stateline Bikeway will have to be re-built to avoid the construction of a retaining wall and maintain public safety. Construction of the road will include excavation depths of up to three feet to repair existing utilities and install drainage systems. The overhead power lines that run along the northern edge of the road will be undergrounded and the streetlights on these power poles will be replaced with free-standing streetlights that meet the character of the neighborhood No structures will be affected, only transportation facilities and utilities. 

Tier 2 site specific reviews will be completed for those laws and authorities not addressed in the tier 1 broad review for each address under this program when addresses become known. 

Level of Environmental Review Citation: 24 CFR Part 58.35(a)(1) (i) Acquisition, repair, improvement, reconstruction, or rehabilitation of public facilities and improvements (other than buildings) when the facilities and improvements are in place and will be retained in the same use without change in size or capacity of more than 20 percent. 

Tier 2 Site Specific Review: The site-specific reviews will cover the following laws and authorities not addressed in the Tier 1 broad review: None 

Mitigation Measures/Conditions/Permits (if any): Not Applicable 

Estimated Project Cost: Community Project Funding under the Economic Development Initiative, CDFA #14.251: $1,385,000, Total Project Cost: $3,201,000 

The activity/activities proposed are categorically excluded under HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 from National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements per 24 CFR Part 58.35(a)(1) (i).
