NAME OF APPLICANT: CM Charter Capital Corp c/o: T. Baker Smith, Attn: Claire LaBarbera, 17927 Old Jefferson Highway, in Prairieville, Louisiana 70769.

LOCATION OF WORK: located at the southeast corner of Power Center Pkwy and 5th Ave., in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in Calcasieu Parish (lat. 30.184615°, long. -93.186201°), as shown within the enclosed drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080206, Calcasieu River Watershed)

CHARACTER OF WORK: A permit was previously authorized under file No. MVN-2012-2853-WJJ, on April 17, 2013, approving the construction of a commercial complex to include retails stores, a hospital and parking lot. The permit authorized the clearing, grubbing, and grading of a 20 acre tract, including permanent wetland impacts. The development was not constructed prior to the expiration of the permit. The permittee requests to construct a residential apartment complex and parking area. The project will include excavation of a pond, removing approximately 7,744 cubic yards of native material and placing it onsite as fill. The work will impact approximately 2.9 acres of wetlands for construction and 2.2 acres permanently by fill.  Approximately 1.73 acres of wetlands will be avoided and remain as green space, and BMPs such as silt-fence will be installed to avoid wetland impacts from construction activities outside the project area. A portion of wetland areas currently within the development footprint to be impacted have already been mitigated for in the previously issued permit (0.22 of an acre). If a Department of the Army permit is warranted, the applicant has proposed to mitigate the remaining unavoidable wetlands impacts at an approved and acceptable mitigation bank within the N.O. District.
