PUBLIC NOTICE AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Union County is eligible to apply for a 2007 Community Development Block Grant from the Oregon Economic and Community Development Department.
Community Development Block Grant funds come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grants can be used for public facilities and housing improvements, primarily for persons with low and moderate incomes.
Approximately $14 million will be awarded to Oregon non-metropolitan cities and counties in 2007. The maximum grant that a city or county can receive is $1,000,000.
The County is preparing an application for a 2007 Community Development Block Grant from the Oregon Economic and Community Development Department for the Housing Rehabilitation Program in Union, Baker, Grant and Wallowa counties to rehabilitate homes owned and occupied by low and moderate income persons. It is estimated that the proposed project will benefit at least 40 persons, of whom 100% will be low or moderate income.
A public hearing will be held by the Union County Board of Commissioners at 10:00 a.m. on February 7, 2007, at the Union County Commissioners office, 1106 K. Ave., LaGrande, OR 97850.
The purpose of this hearing is for the Board of Commissioners to obtain citizen views and to respond to questions and comments about:
Â• Community development and housing needs, especially the needs of low and moderate income persons, as well as other needs in the community that might be assisted with a Community Development Block Grant project; and,
Â• The proposed project.
Written comments are also welcome and must be received by February 7, 2007 by 9:00 am at the Union County Commissioners office, 1106 K. Ave., LaGrande, OR 97850. Both oral and written comments will be considered by the Union County Board of Commissioners in deciding whether to apply. The location of the hearing is accessible to persons with disabilities. Please let Shelley Burgess, at 541-963-1001, know if you will need any special accommodations to attend or participate in the meeting.
More information about Oregon Community Development Block Grants, the proposed project, and records about the County's past use of Community Development Block Grant funds is available for public review at the Union County Commissioners' office during regular office hours. Advance notice is requested. If special accommodations are needed, please notify Shelley Burgess at 541-963-1001 so that appropriate assistance can be provided.
Permanent involuntary displacement of persons or businesses is not anticipated as a result from the proposed project. If displacement becomes necessary, alternatives will be examined to minimize the displacement and provide required/reasonable benefits to those displaced. Any low and moderate-income housing which is demolished or converted to another use will be replaced.
