First Of Two CDBG Public Hearings Previews Allocation Plans

The Benton Harbor Community Development Block Grant Program was front and center Thursday night, during the first of two public hearings covering the annual plan. Director of Community and Economic Development Nicole Rodden-Bowen says the money planned to be used is based off of last year's total, of about $441,000. $50,000 of that is planned for Public Facility Improvements, like the City Center Park Pavilion. It's planned to stage local farmers markets, connecting fresh food to residents.


A second hearing is planned for January 22. The planned allocation of funds can be found at City Hall, and public comments are encouraged now through the 20th of January.
