6/23/2010 – Public Notices


 

PUBLIC NOTICE AND

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The City of Maddock plans to submit a Community Development Block Grant

(CDBG) application to the State of North Dakota, Division of Community Services (DCS). CDBG funds are intended to provide decent housing, suitable living environments and economic opportunities, principally for very low and low income persons through rehabilitation and preservation, economic/job development and public facilities improvements. It is estimated that $6,000,000 will be available statewide for the "Small Cities" CDBG program projects.

The application being considered would request $20,515 for the City of Maddock fitness center completion. It is estimated that approximately 100% of the funds would benefit very low and low income persons.

Permanent involuntary displacement of neighborhood persons or businesses is not anticipated. Should it later become necessary to consider such displacement, alternatives will be examined to minimize the displacement. If no feasible alternatives exist, required/reasonable benefits will be provided to those displaced to mitigate adverse effects and hardships. Any very low and low income housing which is demolished or converted will be replaced.

A public hearing will be held at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at the Maddock City Hall to obtain views and questions related to:

The proposed CDBG application is for the City of Maddock fitness center completion, community development and housing needs, including the needs of very low and low income persons, as well as other needs in the community that might be addressed through the CDBG program and the performance of the City of Maddock in carrying out its community development responsibilities.

Written comments are also welcomed and must be received by June 28, 2010 at PO Box 651, Devils Lake, ND. Oral and written comments will be considered in deciding whether to submit an application for the proposed project. Written summary information will be available from the Maddock City Auditor’s Office on June 22, 2010 until June 29, 2010 on any CDBG application the city of Maddock intends to submit to the state. A copy of the application as submitted to the state will be available for public review at North Central Planning Council after June 29, 2010.

Information and records regarding the City of Maddock proposed and past use of CDBG funds are available at North Central Planning Council during regular office hours. Advance notice is requested. If special accommodations are needed, please notify so that appropriate aids can be made available.

PUBLIC NOTICE AND

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The City of Leeds plans to submit a Community Development Block Grant

(CDBG) application to the State of North Dakota, Division of Community Services (DCS). CDBG funds are intended to provide decent housing, suitable living environments and economic opportunities, principally for very low and low income persons through rehabilitation and preservation, economic/job development and public facilities improvements. It is estimated that $6,000,000 will be available statewide for the "Small Cities" CDBG program projects.

The application being considered would request $38,800 for City of Leeds Lagoon Repair. It is estimated that approximately 100% of the funds would benefit very low and low income persons. Permanent involuntary displacement of neighborhood persons or businesses is not anticipated.

Should it later become necessary to consider such displacement, alternatives will be examined to minimize the displacement. If no feasible alternatives exist, required/reasonable benefits will be provided to those displaced to mitigate adverse effects and hardships.

Any very low and low income housing which is demolished or converted will be replaced.

A public hearing will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, June 29, 2010, at the Leeds City Hall to obtain views and questions related to:

The proposed CDBG application is for the City of Leeds lagoon repair, community development and housing needs, including the needs of very low and low income persons, as well as other needs in the community that might be addressed through the CDBG program and the performance of the city of Leeds in carrying out its community development responsibilities.

Written comments are also welcomed and must be received by June 28, 2010 at PO Box 651, Devils Lake, ND. Oral and written comments will be considered in deciding whether to submit an application for the proposed project. Written summary information will be available from the Leeds City Auditor’s Office on June 22, 2010 until June 29, 2010 on any CDBG application the city of Leeds intends to submit to the state. A copy of the application as submitted to the state will be available for public review at North Central Planning Council after June 29, 2010.

Information and records regarding the city of Leeds proposed and past use of CDBG funds are available at North Central Planning Council during regular office hours. Advance notice is requested. If special accommodations are needed, please notify so that appropriate aids can be made available.
