The Knox County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, June 13, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in order to discuss the proposed FY 2016 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Allocation and Target of Opportunity grant applications and to discuss a proposed amendment to the County’s FY 2014 CDBG grant. The hearing will be held at the Commissioner’s office, 117 E. High Street, Suite 161, Mount Vernon, OH 43050.

Knox County is eligible for $93,000 in Fiscal Year 2016 CDBG Allocation funds providing the County meets applicable program requirements. A total of $75, 000 is proposed to be used for street improvements in the Parkview Addition in Berlin Township, with $3,000 for fair housing and $15,000 for administration. The project will meet the national objective of benefiting low-to-moderate income persons.

Knox County also intends to apply for a $250,000 FY 2016 CDBG Targets of Opportunity grant to make improvements to Wally Road. The CDBG funds will be combined with an Ohio Public Works Grant and County force account labor to complete the approximately $1 million dollar project. The project will meet the national objective of eliminating slum and blight. Both of the FY 2016 grants will be completed between September 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017.

The proposed amendment to the FY 2014 CDBG grant involves street, sidewalk and storm sewer improvements in Danville. The County plans to complete the projects, but the exact quantities are being revised which requires a grant amendment. The County hopes to complete this project by December 2016.

Citizens are encouraged to attend the public hearing in order to provide input and comment on the proposed applications before they are submitted to the Ohio Development Services Agency.
