With the Central Marysville Annexation in 2010, the City of Marysville crossed a threshold that made it eligible for a federal Community Development Block Grant. Cities with more than 50,000 population can apply for funds to carry out a wide range of activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, spurring economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.
The City of Marysville anticipates receiving $218,016 in federal funds in 2012 under the CDBG program, according to city spokesperson Doug Buell.
To gather input from the public regarding the community's priorities, officials have scheduled a Public Hearing Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 7 p.m. at City Hall in the Council Chambers, 1049 State Avenue. The Planning Commission and city staff want to hear your thoughts about public facilities, infrastructure and services for 2012-2016.
Both oral and written comments will be accepted at the hearing and throughout the planning process, as the city develops its CDBG Consolidated Plan, which includes a 5-year strategic plan and annual action plan.
