PUBLIC NOTICE - HEARING NO.1

 

(Kirksville, MO)  

The City of Kirksville will hold a public hearing on Friday, September 21, 2018,
5:30 p.m. at City Hall to discuss the City's submission of an application for the Fiscal Year 2018 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The City is interested in obtaining all citizens' input on community development needs within the city. As part of the hearing process, citizens will be asked to verbally assist in the completion of a Needs Assessment document. The document will detail what the residents feel are the strengths and weaknesses of the community. In addition to the Needs Assessment, citizens will have the opportunity to comment on the impact of the proposed project on historic structures and other applicable federally-regulated program areas. The City needs as much local participation as possible in order to reflect the true desires of the community as a whole, as well as the comments relating to the proposed project application. The State has established a maximum application request for each funding category. Activities that are eligible for funding include the improvement of public works, public facilities, housing rehabilitation, and others allowed by law. At least 51% of the funds must be used to benefit low- and moderate-income persons. No displacement of persons will be proposed.

The City is proposing to complete stormwater improvements in the middle/eastern part of the city. The area to be addressed is bounded by South Cottage Grove Avenue on the East, Davis Street on the West, McPherson Street and Washington Street on the North, and Normal Avenue on the South. The total project cost is estimated at $663,800. The City proposes to contribute $257,000 in cash, $20,180 in-kind labor by city employees, with grant funds of $386,620 needed to make up the balance. The project, if funded, will benefit 60% low- and moderate-income persons. All citizens, including those in the targeted area, are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities. For more information, or if you require special accommodations at the hearing, contact Sarah Halstead, 660-627-1225.
