NAME OF APPLICANT:  Burbank Highland LLC, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Michael Henry, 2323 Hwy 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, Louisiana  70401. 

LOCATION OF WORK:   Between Burbank Drive and Highland Road adjacent to Bayou Fountain, Section 50, T8S-R1E, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings. 

 CHARACTER OF WORK:  This project was previously advertised on public notice date issued July 31, 2017, and is being re-advertised due to updated project drawings.  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate, and deposit fill for the construction and maintenance of a mixed use development (Burbank Highlands) to include 102 residential lots, 2 assisted living buildings, 9 commercial/retail buildings, parking, a storm water detention lake that will incorporate the existing ponds on the property, and utilities.  Approximately 305,000 cubic yards of earthen native fill material will be excavated and redistributed on site to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  The proposed project is situated on an approximate 87-acre tract that has been determined to contain approximately 18 acres of forested and herbaceous wetlands and 9 acres of “other waters of the U.S”.  Approximately 17 acres of herbaceous wetlands would be permanently impacted in construction of the development.  

   The applicant stated that they have designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  Any further reduction would limit usage of the property and, therefore deem the project impracticable.   As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the basin of impact.
