Martinsville tries yet again to obtain block-grant funding for Pine Corridor Road venture | Govt. and Politics

The third time’s the allure.

At minimum that need to be the hope with the town of Martinsville’s software for a Neighborhood Development Block Grant for the Pine Corridor neighborhood.

The city  is in the system of finishing its 3rd application for the grant, and Director of Local community Involvement Mark McCaskill gave Metropolis Council an update on progress by means of Zoom in the course of Tuesday’s council conference.

A general public listening to about the task was performed then as nicely, but no 1 spoke.

The Group Growth Block Grant program is a adaptable plan that gives communities with means to handle a wide range of neighborhood improvement demands, according to the Section of Housing and Urban Development’s web site.

Pine Hall Highway is off Fayette Road. The place to be included by the grant includes the region of Fayette Avenue involving (and like) North Avenue and Pine Hall Highway, Kings Row, Wray Street, Yorkshire Road, Maxine Highway, Foster Courtroom, Carver Court, Marshall Highway, Mitchell Road, Harris Road and a tiny portion of North Memorial Boulevard.

Arranging was concluded and a CDBG application was submitted for the revitalization task in 2018 and early 2019, but that software was screened out because of a depth about how 1 of the required public hearings was marketed.
