On Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the Arcadia City Hall Council Chamber, 240 W. Huntington Drive, the Arcadia City Council will conduct a public hearing regarding unused funds eligible for an ADA project in Fiscal Year 2019-20.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has advised the City of Arcadia is eligible to utilize $210,000 in unused funds for Fiscal Year 2019-20. Therefore, the city is requesting funding for bus and transit stop ADA improvements.

A maximum of 15% of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for Fiscal Year 2019-20 may be used for public services such as senior citizen assistance or meals programs. The remainder must be used for programs related to community enhancements for low- and moderate-income residents; i.e., housing rehabilitation programs, neighborhood development programs, or retrofitting of facilities to comply with federal disabled accessibility (ADA) requirements.

At said time and place an opportunity will be afforded to all those interested and the public in general to be heard. All persons are advised that should any person desire to legally challenge any action taken by the Arcadia City Council with respect to the above matters and this public hearing, such person may be limited to raising only those issues and objections raised by such person or other persons at or prior to the time of the public hearing.

Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) persons with a disability who require a disability-related modification or accommodation in order to participate in a meeting, including auxiliary aids or services, may request such modification or accommodation from the Arcadia City Clerk’s Office at (626) 574-5455. Notification 48 hours prior to the meeting will enable the city to make reasonable arrangements to assure accessibility to the meeting.

All persons are invited to appear and provide testimony at the public hearing. In addition, all persons are invited to provide written and other evidence at or prior to the public hearing. You may view the Arcadia City Council agenda and the documents on the city’s website at ArcadiaCA.gov.

Further information regarding the use of CDBG funds is available at the Arcadia Development Services Department located at 240 W. Huntington Drive, Arcadia. If you have questions, contact Patricia Auriemmo at (626) 574-5479 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; and 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on alternate Fridays. Arcadia City Hall will be closed on Friday, May 10, 2019.
