Public Hearing Scheduled for North Judson Community Center

NJCommunityCenterThe proposed North Judson-Wayne Township community center will be up for discussion during a public hearing this evening.

Residents once again have a chance to offer their input on the project. An application for grant funding from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs had to be delayed while the location of the proposed building was called into question. However, by waiting until the fall round of grant applications, some additional funding may be available, since OCRA has increased its maximum grant amount to $500,000 from $400,000. In total, the project’s expected to cost over $800,000.

A letter of intent for the grant funding is due by this Friday. The grant application itself will be due October 14.

Tonight’s public hearing takes place at 6:00 p.m. at North Judson Town Hall, followed by the regular North Judson Town Council meeting at 6:30.

Tonight, council members will decide whether to give their final approval to an updated Golf Cart Ordinance. It would allow properly registered golf carts to be driven at night, if they have the required lighting.
