PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

The Neighborhood Revitalization Grant program design process is reliant on community input. The grant is highly competitive and community participation during grant application planning is something the application will be scored on. The Village is attempting to identify needs and collect information from residents by surveying and holding community meetings. Resident surveys were delivered to every household in the Village and are still being accepted. Neighborhood meetings will be held on April 23, 2017 at 3:00 P.M. and May 6, 2017 at 3:00 PM at the Village Community Center. Residents will have the opportunity to participate at those times in discussions about the grant planning and project selection process.
