Logan Municipal Council approves $400,000 in community development block grants

<strong>LOGAN—</strong> There was no opposition last night when the Logan Municipal Council approved approximately $400,000 in community development block grants for 14 projects that will benefit people in low to moderate income areas.

On KVNU’s <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/324/2013_05_08_324_10693_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>For the People show Tuesday</a>, CDBG coordinator James Olsen talked about the allocations, and said neighborhood council meetings were held prior to the funding decisions. He said by far, people wanted the money to go towards sidewalks the most.

“Consequently, $290,000 of the CDBG allocation from HUD is going to sidewalks in low to moderate income service areas,” Olsen said.

Other allocations went to the Whittier Community Center, the Cache Valley Volunteer Center, the Cache Employment and Training Center, the Child and Family Support Center, and the Logan Community Development. Approximately $290,000 was allocated for sidewalks.
