Seeking additional public input on CDBG and HOME plans for FY19
The Planning and Neighborhood Development Department held a public hearing the evening of March 12 to review community development activities and projects. The hearing provided an opportunity to hear citizen comments and questions about the 2018-2019 Consolidated Annual Action Plan for the use of Community Development Block Grant and HOME grant funds. The final plan will outline proposed goals and activities during the upcoming fiscal year (July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019). The draft document is available for review on concordnc.gov, and printed copies are also available for public review now through April 23 at the Planning and Neighborhood Development Office in City Hall (35 Cabarrus Avenue W) and the Concord Branch of the Cabarrus County Public Library (27 Union Street N). All proposed budgets will be proportionally increased or decreased from the estimated funding levels to match actual allocation amounts. All interested persons are invited to provide comments and input for the final Consolidated Annual Action Plan through April 23, 2018 by contacting Pepper Bego in the Planning and Neighborhood Development Department or emailing begop@concordnc.gov.

NCDOT to repair section of Roberta Road
The N.C. Department of Transportation will be closing a section of Roberta Road in Concord at 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 10, weather permitting. The closure is necessary for maintenance crews to replace a pipe under the roadway. The road is scheduled to reopen by 4 p.m. Thursday, April 12. During the closure, a marked detour will take motorists from Roberta Road to George Liles Parkway to U.S. 29 South to Pitts School Road back to Roberta Road. Motorists traveling in the opposite direction will follow the detour in reverse. NCDOT will place electronic message boards on Roberta Road at Pitts School Road and George Liles Parkway to alert motorists to the closure.
