The City of Newburgh Department of Planning & Development is announcing that sidewalk replacement funds are once again available through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
Last year’s CDBG program made it possible for almost one mile of sidewalk to be replaced in the City of Newburgh.
“I was very happy with the program, it worked for me. Not only was I able to help beautify the City but I was able to contribute to improving the walking surface in front of my house. I would certainly encourage more people to take advantage of the program,” stated Doris Guildford, a Newburgh homeowner.
Justine Buchanan, who owns property on Lander St. said, “I was very pleased to work with the City to help provide an improvement to my neighborhood.”
The sidewalk program is available to all City of Newburgh residential and commercial property owners. The City will pay 50% of the costs of sidewalk replacement up to $2,000.00.
Applications and program guidelines are available online at www.cityofnewburgh-ny.gov. Applications will be accepted on a first come first serve basis through April 11. You may also call the Department of Planning & Development at (845) 569-9400 for further information.
