On or about February 10, 2017, The Town of Hebron intends to apply to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs for a grant from the State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Storm Water Improvement Program.  This program is funded by Title I of the Federal Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. These funds are to be used for a community development project that will include the following activities: Construction, in Park Place subdivision, of 1,400 feet of new linear conveyance, 400 feet of new storm sewer outfall, enhancements to increase storage volume in existing detention basin. Construction of 700 feet of 12inch storm sewer for Oak Court flood relief. Removal at abandoned railroad at Cobb Creek of non-functioning existing culvert.

The total amount of CDBG funds to be requested is $500,000.00. The amount of CDBG funds proposed to be used for activities that will benefit low-and moderate income persons is $255,000.00.  The Applicant also proposes to expend an estimated $942,000.00 in non-CDBG funds on the project.  These non-CDBG funds will be derived from a Storm Water Revenue Bond issue.

The Town of Hebron will hold a public hearing on February 8, 2017, 7:00PM, local time, at the Hebron Community Center located at 611 N. Main Street, Hebron, Indiana, to provide interested parties an opportunity to express their views on the proposed federally funded CDBG project.
