Slaton City Council met in City Hall Feb. 13 to hear the presentation by Community Development Block Grant for a new City plan.
This plan includes housing zones, street repairs, land usage, water and sewage.
At the beginning of the meeting, public comment voiced concerns about trash being put on private property as well road conditions on Railroad Ave.
City Council heard a plan for CDBG Planning grant. The presentation included: property types and locations such as residential, business and agriculture for zoning ordinances and housing development; road development; water and sewer development. The CDBG City Plan is estimated to take 10 to 15 years to complete.
“As the City is growing economically those are kind of things that developers already know,” CDBG representative Ken Cogniet said.
“They already know what your capacity is and … they need to know that they can house employees.”
