Multi Year Implementation Plan
The RESTORE Act and the U.S. Treasury final rule directs the state, county, and parish applicants to prepare multiyear implementation plans (MYIP) that prioritize eligible activities for direct component funds and to obtain broad-based participation from individuals, businesses, Indian tribes, and non-profit organizations as part of the plans. The state, county, or parish applicants may periodically update their plans by following the same steps, including obtaining public input, prior to submitting their revised plans to the U.S. Treasury. All versions of the MYIP are available under quick links.
On July 11, 2019, the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners approved amending the Initial MYIP which was first accepted by the U.S. Treasury in May 2017 that included 14 projects. The first amendment became necessary due to viability, cost increases, scope, and material modifications of projects. No new projects were included. The U.S. Treasury accepted Amendment #1 in September 2019 in which 10 projects remained.
On September 16, 2019 the Board commenced the process of developing the second amendment of the MYIP to include new projects. Public input and comments on identified focus areas and project priorities are welcome. Two public meetings were held on Nov. 12 and on Dec. 3, 2019. Project priorities are being identified through the Local RESTORE Council for recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners. The next Local RESTORE Council meeting will be held on May 19 at 2:30 p.m. The public is welcome to provide input on proposed projects. See here for meeting details. The Board of County Commissioners will make the final selection of projects that will be submitted for consideration to the U.S. Treasury.
