PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE CDBG-DR

The Bootheel Regional Planning & Economic Development Commission will hold a public hearing on October 17, 2019 at 4:00pm at Bootheel Regional Planning & Economic Development Commission located at 105 E. North Main, Dexter, MO 63841 to discuss the submission of an application for the Fiscal Year 2019 Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program. The Bootheel Regional Planning & Economic Development Commission is interested in obtaining all citizens’ input on unmet housing needs, need for a housing study, and potential for housing in the region in as it directly relates to the DR-4317 and other needs related to the April – May 2017 flooding events within the Bootheel Region (Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Scott, and Stoddard counties). Citizens will have the opportunity to discuss the impact of the proposed project on the environment and the environment’s possible impact on the project. The Bootheel Regional Planning & Economic Development Commission needs as much local participation as possible in order to reflect the true desires of the community as a whole, as well as comments relating to the proposed project application. At least 70% of the funds must be used to benefit low and moderate-income persons.

The Bootheel Regional Planning & Economic Development Commission is proposing use of CDBG-DR funds for a housing study to be conducted in the Bootheel Region to determine the state of housing, as it directly relates to the DR-4317. The project, if funded, will benefit low and moderate-income persons. All citizens are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities.
