COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG)
FIRST PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Notice is hereby given that Heber City will hold a public hearing on December 15, 2020 at 6:00 p.m., during the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting. Heber City is eligible to apply to the Utah Department of Workforce Services for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program, a federally funded program administered by the State of Utah, Housing and Community Development Division (HCD). Heber City is eligible to apply for CDBG funding provided Heber City meets the applicable program requirements. Due to the current Wasatch County high transmission index of COVID-19, the hearing will be held virtually and can be accessed through the City’s website: https://www.heberut.gov/256/Agendas-and-Minutes. Public comment is welcome and can be emailed to CCPublic@heberut.gov or submitted through the City website by selecting the “Agendas and Minutes” tab and clicking on the eComment option for the associated meeting.
The Purpose of the public hearing is to provide citizens with pertinent information about the Community Development Block Grant program and to allow for discussion of possible applications. This public hearing will cover eligible activities, program requirements, and expected funding allocations in the region. The CDBG Program can fund a broad range of activities, including, but not limited to: construction of public works and facilities, e.g., water and sewer lines, fire stations, acquisition of real property, and provision of public services such as food banks or homeless shelters. In the event that Heber City chooses to apply for CDBG funding, a second public hearing will be held at a later time to discuss the project.
