The City of Oil City intends to submit an application to the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2015. The anticipated CDBG funding assistance is $274,500. These CDBG funds can be used for a variety of purposes within the City such as public improvements (water, sewer, streets, recreation, etc.), to arrest physical or environmental decline of the area, rehabilitation of deteriorating housing units, removal of architectural barriers to the elderly or handicapped, energy conservation projects, etc. At least 70% of these funds must be used to benefit low and moderate income persons. The displacement of persons as a result of projects selected will be avoided to the maximum extent possible. The first of two public hearings pertaining to the application for these funds will be held at 4:00 pm on August 27, 2015 in Council Chambers, 21 Seneca St., Oil City, PA. This facility is ADA accessible. If you require additional accommodations please call 678-3017. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the CDBG Program and to receive public comment on possible projects. The public is invited to provide input into the Three-Year Community Development Plan as well as comment on the City’s prior use of CDBG funds. Public remarks will be received by the Community Development Office until 10:00 am on September 10, 2015. Before final decision by Council and submission of the application, the Three-Year Community Development Plan will be available for public review and comment until a second public hearing at 10:00 am on October 15, 2015.
