05/28/14 Public Hearing Notice

The City of Missouri City will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, May 28, 2014, 6:30 PM at the MCCA Building at 319 Main Street, Missouri City, Missouri to discuss the submission of an application for the fiscal year 2014 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

The City is interested in obtaining all citizens’ input on community development needs within their community. 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. The city needs as much local participation as possible in order to reflect the true desires of the communities 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 make improvements to the water distribution system.

The total project cost is estimated at $1.6 Million. The City is seeking $1.1 million in SRF Low-Interest Loan and is seeking CDBG grant funds of $500,000 needed to make up the balance. The project, if funded, will benefit at least 51% low/moderate income persons. All citizens, including those in this community, are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities.

For more information on the proposed project, contact Monte Railey, Missouri City City Clerk at 816-750-4481.
