Current Public Facility Projects

The City uses the CDBG program to fund activities which will improve public facilities which are primarily used by low income people and to make infrastructure improvements in areas of the community which are primarily low income.

CDBG funds are provided to local non-profit agencies and other City departments to promote handicap accessibility in public buildings and parks.
