Public Hearing

Federal Community Development Grant Program


            The Town of Eden is eligible for a Federal Community Development grant under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.


            Supervisor Nellis explained the purpose of the public hearing is to provide an opportunity for citizens to express community development and housing needs and to discuss possible projects that would benefit low and moderate-income persons in the Town of Eden.  The hearing will also present a review of prior Community Development projects and expenditures and a discussion of eligible activities.


            The following residents were present:


                        Deborah Asboth, 8345 Holly Hill Court

                        Gary Neureuter, 8737 Woodside Drive


            Mrs. Asboth presented a proposal to the Town Board for the grant monies to be spent to replace Pace playground at the Eden Elementary School that was removed this Spring.  Mrs. Asboth stated that she has had conversations with the administration of Eden Central School and Eden PTA, but thought funding from a grant would jump-start the project.  Supervisor Nellis stated that the grant money could not be used for that purpose.


            Supervisor Nellis stated that November 1, 2004 is the deadline for submitting an application.  The Town Board is proposing a project to be submitting for the grant that would replace sidewalks in the Central Business District to include East Church Street, from Town Hall to Hammond Drive, the sidewalks in front of the Eden Evergreen Cemetary, in front of the Methodist Church, and in front of Mrs. Mackey’s house. 


            Supervisor Nellis stated that the three (3) choices are prioritized on the application and will be presented at the October 13, 2004 Town Board Meeting to be held at East Eden Fire Hall.
