  From:To: PAGAN, DAVID G.- HQ   ; Cc:Subject: RE: Real Estate impact of Levee proposal Date: Tuesday, February 05, 2008 6:38:48 AM Good morning David. The SBI TI team worked with USACE to pull together the financial information below on the real estateimpact of adopting the levee proposal. For segments O-4 thru O-10, the Corps reports 188 total Non-Federal landowners. A number of these owners are not along the fence-line, but rather along access roads. Cost to acquire real estate has ‘rough’ estimate of including allproperty needed to support fence-line/access/staging. RGV EIS and discussions with Hidalgo Co. thus far represent 21.9 miles of potential fence inHidalgo County, so the total RE cost would be roughly Roughly 4.5 non-contiguous miles are federally owned already, so if you think all the realestate cost would be access only – you could say 17 ½ non-federal miles or or 4.5 federal miles or So, taking uncertainty into account, we’re somewhere betweenWe have not begun real estate appraisal efforts yet, so it’s difficult to offer a more reliableestimate; this is based on the Corps’ knowledge and experience in the area. On a related note, the levee proposal will be worked into the Final EIS for RGV, which is nowtentatively expected to be issued on March 1, 2008. As an EIS, it will go out for an additional 30-daypublic comment period. I’m sure there will be additional questions, and I will be glad to help with those. Secure Border InitiativeU.S. Customs and Border Protection For more information about the Secure Border Initiative, visitwww.cbp.gov/sbior contact us atSBI_info@dhs.gov. From: PAGAN, DAVID G.- Sent: Monday, February 04, 2008 9:17 AM To:   Cc:   Subject: Real Estate impact of Levee proposal   Awhile back (I believe in early December), I asked SBI to evaluate the impact on real estate parcels inRGV if the levee/wall proposal were adopted. It is my understanding that most/all of the HidalgoCounty tracts that would not require condemnation/purchase because the project would be on IBWCland. However, I have yet to receive anything from SBI to document the real estate impact.With the potential S1 trip this week (and the ongoing media + Hill interest), I feel it is crucial that we   (b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (5)(b) (5)(b) (5)(b) (5)(b) (5)(b) (5)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b)(6)(b) (6)(b) (6)  have all pertinent info available. If we can in fact reduce the real estate impact in that area I feel wecan reduce our total costs + maintain relationships with the local community. However, I do not feelcomfortable making those claims without some hard facts.   Can you please ask the TI team or whoever has this info to share it with me?   Thank you,David
