Public Hearing To Discuss County's Community Development
July 29, 2020
Valley County will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, Aug. 4, at 5:30 p.m. in the office of the Valley County Commissioners located at 501 East Court Street, Glasgow. The purpose of the hearing is to obtain public comments regarding the County’s overall community development needs (public facilities, economic development, and housing needs), including the needs of low and moderate-income persons. Valley County will also seek the views of citizens on the activities that should be undertaken to meet the identified needs and their relative priority.
This fall, the Valley County Commissioners may apply for funding from the Montana Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program (federal funding administered by the Montana Department of Commerce) and other state and federal funding sources to deal with local housing, public facilities, or other community needs. The Commissioners want Valley County residents to offer their comments or suggestions on the County’s needs and the type of projects or programs which should be considered for development. Comments may be given orally at the hearing or submitted in writing by Monday, Aug. 3, at 5 p.m.
