Public Hearing Notice


The City of Ellington will hold a public hearing on March 27, 2018, 3:30 p.m. at the City Hall to discuss the city’s submission of an application for the Fiscal Year 2018 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The city is interested in obtaining all citizens’ input on community development needs within the city.  As part of the hearing process citizens will be asked to verbally assist in the completion of a Needs Assessment document. The document will detail what the residents feel are the strengths and weaknesses of the community.  The city needs as much local participation as possible to reflect the true desires of the community as a whole, as well as the comments relating to the proposed project application.  The State has established a maximum request for each category.  Activities that are eligible for funding include the improvement of public works, public facilities, housing rehabilitation, and others allowed by law.  At least 51% of the funds must be used to benefit low-and-moderate income persons.  No displacement of persons is proposed.


The city is proposing to repair the existing road bed, address settlement issues, repair storm water drainage, and overlay portions of city streets including sections of Main, 2nd, College, and Tubbs Avenue. All city residents will benefit from the project, which is estimated to cost $315,000. The city will provide approximately $45,000 cash match and approximately $20,000 of in-kind work as local match. The city proposes to apply for approximately $250,000 in CDBG Funding. All citizens are encouraged to attend and comment on the proposed activities.


For more information on the proposed project, contact Mayor Paul Wood at 573-663-7715.
