Public Notice – Hearing

The Christian County Commission will hold a public hearing on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the Chadwick R-1 School District cafeteria located at 7090 State Hwy 125 South, Chadwick, MO 65629 to discuss the County’s submission of an application for the fiscal year 2016 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the Chadwick R-1 School District. The County is interested in obtaining all citizens’ input on community development needs within the Chadwick community. As part of the hearing process citizens will be asked to verbally assist in the completion of a “Needs Assessment” document. The document will detail what the residents feel are the strengths and weaknesses of the community. The County needs as much local participation as possible in order to reflect the true desires of the community as a whole, as well as the comments relating to the proposed project application. The State has established a maximum application request for each funding category. Activities that are eligible for funding include the improvement of public works, public facilities, housing rehabilitation, and others allowed by law. At least 51% of the funds must be used to benefit low-and-moderate income persons. No displacement of persons will be proposed. The County is proposing the proposed project will be to have a sidewalk constructed (North to South) along ½  a mile of Highway 125 South from the intersection of South Rose and Hwy 125 S to the 2nd school entrance along the east side of Highway 125 South in Chadwick, Missouri.  Guard rail will be placed along the ½ mile of sidewalk between the highway swell and the sidewalk located on the east right-of-way belonging to MODOT to ensure student and pedestrian safety while traveling on the sidewalk. Learning Lane will become a circle drive and make exiting and entrance onto 125 South safer as well as eliminate student and overflow parking currently located adjacent to the school building across Highway 125 South. By transitioning student parking to the same side of the highway as the school district is on, students will no longer have the need to cross the dangerous highway to gain access to the school during and after school hours. The addition of the circle drive will decrease traffic congestion in the drop-off zone for the Early Childhood Education Building and the K-12 School facility. The total project cost is estimated at $495,550. The project, if funded, will benefit 83% low/moderate income persons. All citizens, including those in the targeted area, are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities.
