City Council meets today after postponing meeting

Salisbury City Council will meet today at City Hall after postponing Tuesday’s planned meeting due to the winter storm.

Council meets at 4 p.m. and will hold a public hearing on Community Development Block Grant and HOME funds for the city’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The purpose of the hearing is to receive comments from citizens regarding community development needs and to hear requests for public funding. The comments will help guide the city’s plans.

The HOME funds go toward building, buying and rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or home ownership. The Community Development Block Grants go toward alleviating blight in impoverished communities. Some of the things the CDBG funds can be used for include construction of affordable housing, anti-poverty programs and infrastructure development.

Council will hear a presentation from city staff about the grants.

Other items on the meeting’s agenda include an ordinance to reduce the speed limit to 25 mph in the Olde Salisbury Neighborhood off Old Concord Road and an ordinance to restrict parking anytime except Sundays along a portion of the south side of the 100 block of Ridge Street to allow city buses to safely make the right-hand turn onto Ridge Street from South Fulton Street.
