On the agenda: Alhambra City Council to vote on reallocating economic development funds for capital improvements

Alhambra City Council will hold Monday a public hearing to discuss using federal economic development funds for capital improvements. If approved, $700,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding will be reallocated for street and sidewalk improvements, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ramps, and related items, according to the Nov. 10 City Council agenda.

After the hearing, City Council will vote whether to amend the 2014-2015 Action Plan, which addresses housing and community development needs, to reallocate the funds. The CDBG funding is currently allocated for economic development and job creation.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awards CDBG funding to local governments for affordable housing and job creation programs. Local agencies must use the money to benefit low- to moderate-income residents, prevent or eliminate blight, or address urgent community development needs, according to HUD.

City Council will also honor Alhambra native and former Alhambra fireman Larry Stevens for his public service in World War II. Stevens completed over 35 combat missions as a B-17 tail gunner in the U.S. Air Force, according to the City Council agenda. The military has also honored Stevens with an Air Medal and Distinguished Flying Cross.

The commendation comes on the eve of Veterans Day. The city of Alhambra will host Tuesday a ceremony to honor those who have served in the armed forces. The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. at Alhambra Park, 500 N. Palm Ave.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
