City seeks insight for CDBG money

| Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2005

The Connellsville Redevelopment Authority, on behalf of the city, will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday in council chambers at city hall.

The purpose of this meeting is to give individuals and groups representing Connellsville the opportunity to suggest how the city should utilize its 2006 state Community Development Block Grant allocation.

It is anticipated that Connellsville will submit an application to the state Department of Community & Economic Development before March 1, 2006, requesting grant funding in the approximate amount of $367,000.

In addition to hearing citizens' views and comments on how CDBG funds should be used, information will be provided concerning the range of eligible CDBG activities and the amount of CDBG funds proposed to benefit low and moderate income residents.

Citizens may also comment on the city's prior use of CDBG funds.

Anyone unable to attend this public meeting should mail their written requests to the mayor and city council, c/o Connellsville Redevelopment Authority, 124 W. Crawford Ave., Connellsville, PA 15425.

To assure fair consideration, all requests should be received by Dec. 31. Proposals should clearly describe the project, provide an estimate of costs and state why the project is important to the city.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
