Community Development Block Grant funding will be the subject of 2 meetings in Prescott tomorrow. At 2 tomorrow, the Citizens Advisory Committee on these grants will be discussing the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report for the grant funding. This report includes a summary of how the funds have been used and explanations on managing the process, citizen participation and changes in program objectives. Following that meeting, the Committee will discuss an amendment to reallocate 2012 funding. Back in April, City Council members approved the amendment for 45 thousand dollars from Project Aware to the Dexter neighborhood, with the money being used for such improvements as sidewalks and street lighting. The public comment period on the amendment runs through next Tuesday. Both meetings will be held in Council chambers on South Cortez Street.
