NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

 The City of Frostburg will conduct a Public Hearing to obtain the views of citizens on community, economic development, and housing needs to be considered for submission of an application to the Maryland Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) to support the Frostburg Municipal Center Project.  Citizens will have the opportunity to discuss the proposed project and to provide input on other needs to be considered.  The hearing will be held during the regularly scheduled Mayor and Council meeting at the Frostburg Community Center, 27 South Water Street at 7pm on Thursday, April 18, 2019.  The draft application will be available for the public to review on May 15, 2019 until May 29, 2019 at City Hall between the hours of 8 am to 4 pm and on the website at https://www.frostburgcity.org.

Citizens will be furnished with information including but not limited to:

  • The amount of CDBG funds available for State Fiscal Year 2020;
  • The range of activities that may be undertaken with CDBG funds; and
  • The proposed project(s) under consideration by the City of Frostburg, specifically the Municipal Center Project, which will renovate the current Public Safety Building and consolidate both the City Hall and Police functions into one structure.  The CDBG grant application will seek funding for all accessibility improvements so that the City building is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Maryland Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a federally funded program designed to assist governments with activities directed toward neighborhood and housing revitalization, economic development, and improved community facilities and services.  It is administered by the Department of Housing and Community Development.

The Maryland CDBG Program reflects the State’s economic and community development priorities and provides public funds for activities which meet one of the following national objectives, in accordance with the federal Housing Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, that:

1.  benefit to low and moderate income persons and households;
2.  aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight;
3.  meet other community development needs of an urgent nature, or that are an immediate
     threat to community health and welfare.

Efforts will be made to accommodate the disabled and non-English speaking residents with 3 days advance notice to Elizabeth Stahlman at (301) 689-6000 x105.
