Notice is hereby given by Indiana County that it will conduct a virtual public hearing on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 11:00 AM via ZOOM conference. The public hearing is to discuss proposed contract modifications for Indiana County’s 2016 and 2017 Community Development Block Grant contracts on behalf of Indiana Borough. The virtual public hearing is accessible to individuals with disabilities and/or for persons with Limited English Proficiency. If you wish to attend and require special accommodations, please notify the Indiana County Office of Planning and Development 72 hours in advance at 724-465-3870 (Telephone) or 724-465-3805 (TDD) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of the public hearing is to provide interested citizens an opportunity to offer comments on the proposed contract modifications for Indiana County “on behalf of” Indiana Borough’s 2016 and 2017 Community Development Block Grant Entitlement Program. The proposed modifications will eliminate the First Street Retention Pond Improvements Project that is currently funded for $66,000.00 in the 2016 CDBG contract and $86,500.00 of 2017 CDBG contract funds. The modification will re-allocate the same amounts to the S. 15th Street Storm Sewer Replacement Project.
If the County of Indiana “OBO” Indiana Borough would undertake activities that result in the displacement of families or individuals, then the County’s policy for minimizing such displacement would be in effect. The County of Indiana is responsible for replacing all low and moderate housing units that may be demolished or converted as a result of the use of CDBG funds. No displacement of residents or demolition of housing units is proposed.
