Carson City officials will again be reaching out to the citizens and non-profit groups to get their opinions on the kinds of public improvements that might be possible with $450,000 in federal funds. They’re called Community Development Block Grants. The first of three public meetings has been conducted with another public meeting coming up on September 12th, downtown at 108 E. Proctor, Room A.
During this week’s first encounter with the CDBG program several ideas were brought up including improving city parks, ADA additions, and renovations to the FISH (Friends In Service Helping) facility.
The next go-round of discussions is scheduled for 9am, September 12th at 108 E. Proctor, Room A. There will also be a follow-up discussion at a meeting in October for the city to weigh the benefits of what has been presented. Once the projects have been whittled down to the most popular, the winning candidates will be submitted to the federal government for review.
