Section 4(f) de minimis Public Outreach Notification

US20 @ Tumalo Project
Tumalo Elementary School District No. 3C
ODOT Key No. 14892
Federal Aid No. S017(006)

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is developing a multi-use path project on in Tumalo
for construction this coming spring and summer.

ODOT plans to acquire 2,625 square feet of land as permanent easement from the Tumalo Elementary
School District No. 3C, located in Tumalo. The transaction is for stormwater bioretention treatment

The land is currently owned by the Tumalo Elementary School District No. 3C and is part of the Redmond
School District No. 2J. The school property provides recreation opportunities including team sports and
open space. Those portions of the property, ODOT points out, are located adjacent to the portion
where the easement is sought. The easement will not affect the current use of the property for
recreational purposes.

The land transaction requires ODOT to post legal notice of a Federal Highway Administration Section 4(f)
de minimis comment opportunity. Comment will be taken on the easement acquisitions through
February 17, 2023.

While ODOT is taking comment on the proposal, the Agency does not expect to disrupt use of the
property during construction or after the work is complete.

Acquisition of the easement does not affect the public’s ability to use any of the features of the
property. Use of the open space area will still be available.

Provide written comment to Teresa Brasfield, ODOT Region Environmental Coordinator, at 63055 N
Highway 97, Bldg M, Bend, Oregon 97703 or via email at no later
than February 17, 2023.
