City of Warrensburg -- Public Hearing Notice on September 14 2022
The City of Warrensburg will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. in the Municipal Center, 200 S. Holden, Warrensburg, Missouri. The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss the City’s submission of an application for the program year 2022 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 complete and review 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 to reflect the true desires of the community, as well as the comments relating to the proposed application. The State has established a maximum application request inclusive of each funding category. Activities which are eligible for funding include improvements to public works, public facilities, housing rehabilitation and others as 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 has identified the need for street and storm water drain improvement in Census Tract 9606 within the City of Warrensburg. The City is proposing to improve the design and construction of Market and Warren Streets, including sidewalk and drainage improvements to improve intersection safety near an elementary school, safeguard first responders before and during responses, to safeguard pedestrians enroute to school or other destinations and to reduce flooding effects on the streets. If funded, the project will make the neighborhood safer and more resilient in the face of natural disasters and other public emergencies. All citizens are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities. City staff will be present to answer questions about the CDBG program and the proposed application.
For more information on the proposed project, contact Mr. Enrico Villegas, Assistant City Administrator at 660-747-9131. If you need special accommodations for the public hearing, please contact Jodi Schneider at (660) 747-9131 by September 12, 2022. The meeting will be held at an accessible location and the city will make every possible effort to provide reasonable accommodations.
