FY 2018 Town of North Brookfield CDBG Application

The North Brookfield Board of Selectmen will conduct a Public Hearing on February 6, 2018 at 6:15 PM at the North Brookfield Senior Center, 29 Forest Street. The public is encouraged to attend this hearing to discuss the Town’s FY 2018 application to the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development for up to $550,192 in Community Development Block Grant funds. Should the meeting be cancelled due to inclement weather or for another reason, the hearing will be postponed to February 20, 2018 at 6:15 PM at the same location.

The Town of North Brookfield is seeking public input on potential grant-funded projects. Potential projects under development for the application currently include 1) a housing rehabilitation program and 2) an infrastructure improvement plan in the 'West Side' neighborhood (several primarily residential streets to the west of North Main Street). These projects were identified as priorities that are consistent with North Brookfield's Community Development Strategy.

All persons with questions or comments regarding the grant application will have an opportunity to be heard. Those unable to attend may send written comments to the North Brookfield Board of Selectmen, 215 North Main Street, North Brookfield, MA 01535. If awarded, the Central Massachusetts Planning Commission (CMRPC) will assist the Town with grant implementation and administration.

The North Brookfield Senior Center is handicapped accessible. Persons who require special accommodations to attend the public meeting should contact the Selectmen's office at (508) 867-0200 at least two business days prior to the hearing. For further information, contact Andrew Loew at CMRPC at (508) 459-3339 or (508) 756-7717 or at aloew@cmrpc.org.
