Comments and questions will be accepted concerning community needs in Conshohocken; past performance of activities conducted with CDBG funds; how 2021 funds should be used; and areas which should be addressed in the Three-Year Community Development Plan. CDBG funds must be used for the benefit of low-moderate income residents of the Borough. Eligible activities include: water and sewer line replacement or improvement; construction of affordable housing; housing rehabilitation, construction/reconstruction of public/community facilities; public services that are new and provide quantifiable increases in the delivery of services; street improvements; removal of architectural barriers; economic development; code enforcement, acquisition and relocation; clearance and demolition; and general administration, planning, audit, and preparation of the CDBG application. Conshohocken would be responsible for the replacement of any demolished low-moderate income housing units, which displace families or individuals that result from a CDBG Project.
Written comments may be mailed or e-mailed prior to or for 10 days following the hearing to Chris Stetler, Borough of Conshohocken, 400 Fayette Street, Suite 200 Conshohocken, PA 19428 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
