[ARCHIVED] Community Development Program Public Meeting

The City of Midland will welcome public input on the use of funds intended to benefit low- and moderate-income people living in Midland at two upcoming meetings.

The public meetings will be held at:

- 7 p.m. on Feb. 25 at Southeast Senior Center (1803 E. Indiana Ave.)

- 7 p.m. on March 4 at Casa de Amigos (1101 E. Garden Lane)

The City encourages you to attend a meeting to help plan the community development program for 2014-2015. The City received $743,626 in Community Development Block Grant funds for the 2013-2014 program. The amount of this upcoming year's funds has not yet been determined. These funds are primarily intended for programs and projects to benefit low- and moderate-income people.

The City was recently recognized for its past efforts to bring affordable housing and a lasting, visible impact on the community by Habitat for Humanity with the Mark B. Merritt Golden Hammer Award at its annual Tool Box Bash. So far, 131 new homes have been constructed or are under construction as a result of the City's strategy to focus on five target areas in Midland. Fifteen more homes will be constructed by the end of 2014. Streets were paved where needed, sidewalks were added at high pedestrian routes, a neighborhood park was developed, and sub-par conditions were addressed.

For more information, call the Community Development office at 432-685-7472 or 432-685-7408.
