Notice of Public Hearing 2/7/24 - CDBG-DR


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT the Town Board of the Town of New Windsor will hold a Public Hearing on the 7th day of February, 2024 at 7:00 p.m., at Town Hall, 555 Union Avenue, New Windsor, New York  12553, to receive public comment on a proposed Application for Orange County Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery Program funding (hereinafter “CDBG-DR”).  The hearing will also be broadcast on the Town’s official Facebook page at:

On February 9, 2012, Orange County was provided a direct allocation of $11,422,029 in US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) CDBG-DR funds to help the County recover from and assist the County with the unmet needs of its citizens impacted by the 2011 disasters, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.

Under this Program, unmet needs, which remain after funding from other federal, state and local programs, insurance proceeds, nonprofit, community or faith-based organizations, and other private or public sources, are eligible.

During Hurricane Irene, the Town’s Caesars Lane Wastewater Treatment Facility was flooded when storm flow overtopped the banks of the adjacent Moodna Creek, depositing significant debris throughout the facility and critically damaging vital processing equipment. 

The Town is applying for up to six million dollars ($6,000,000) of CDBG-DR funds for construction of a new control building to replace the existing control building as both the central administration and lab/controls systems hub for the entire facility.  

Construction of a new control building will allow the existing control building to be repurposed for other wastewater treatment facility purposes, most notably space for equipment storage and a machine shop on the top floor, which pre-Hurricane Irene had been located on the bottom/ground level of the existing building.

For consideration of such funding, an application for the above-referenced project is required to be submitted to the Orange County Community Development Block Grant -Disaster Recovery Program.  Presently, no deadline exists for submittal of same.

The hearing will provide further information about the CDBG-DR program and will allow for citizen participation in the development of the proposed grant application and/or to provide technical assistance to develop alternate proposals.

Comments on the CDBG-DR program or proposed project(s) will be received at the public hearing. The hearing is being conducted pursuant to Section 570.486, Subpart I of the CFR and in compliance with the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.

The Town New Windsor Town Board invites all interested persons to provide public comments regarding the proposed project, at the above date, time and place.  Persons may appear in person or by agent. 

Written comments may also be provided to the Town Board at 555 Union Avenue, New Windsor, NY  12553 and must be received at or prior to the public hearing; written comments may also be submitted to [email protected] until February 14, 2024 at 4:30 p.m.
