NAME OF APPLICANT: Southern Lifestyles Development, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Michael Henry, 2323 LA Highway 190, Suite 2, Hammond, Louisiana 70401

LOCATION OF WORK: Located along an approximate 19.5-acre parcel, west of Sullivan Road, approximately 1.25 miles south of Hooper Road, in Sections 68 & 69, Township 6 South, Range 2 East, near the town of Central, Louisiana, within East Baton Rouge Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings (Latitude 30.53859 N Longitude -91.03181 W).  This project is located in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin (Amite River HUC 08070202).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant is requesting a modification to an existing Department of the Army permit authorization for the expansion of a mixed use development (The Development at Shoe Creek Phase Two).  The applicant is proposing to clear, grade, excavate, place and maintain fill material for the construction of an additional 32 residential lots, a medical facility, 2 detention ponds, and appurtenances.  A minor modification of the previously authorized phase 1 entails a small layout change adjacent to where the medical facility is proposed.  This configuration change is located on sheet 2A and 4 of the attached drawings.  Approximately 4.93 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands and 585 linear feet of jurisdictional Other Waters of the United States would be permanently impacted as a result of the proposed modification.  Approximately 30,800 cubic yards of native fill material would be placed in jurisdictional areas from the proposed detention ponds excavation and from commercial provider sources.  The applicant has claimed that the project will satisfy local drainage and sewerage requirements.  Approximately 446 linear feet of Other Waters of the United States is to be reconstructed. The original permit authorization was issued on December 6, 2016.  The applicant has claimed that the project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse wetland impacts to the maximum extent practicable. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.
