Contractors needed for town project

When the Town of Pulaski begins its Southeast Revitalization project, keeping the contracting work local will be one of its main goals.
Therefore, Town Manager John Hawley is asking interested contractors and individuals who do carpentry work to contact the town to be pre-qualified for the project.
Interested parties should call 994-8600.
Hawley said part of the grant agreement with the Department of Housing and Community Development is to try to keep the construction work local whenever possible.
The $3 million project includes street and water system improvements, removal of blighted structures and construction of new homes. It is expected to benefit 154 people, 137 of whom are low-to-moderate income.
The project calls for the town to “provide a broad range of improvements” to the neighborhood, including “the rehabilitation of ten owner-occupied homes, the substantial reconstruction of owner-occupied homes, the rehabilitation of four rental homes, the acquisition of six lots for the construction of six new homes for sale to first-time low-to-moderate income homebuyers, and the demolition and clearance of six vacant and blighted structures. Infrastructure upgrades will include the installation of 3,000 feet of water line, resurfacing of 1,628 feet of existing streets, improvements to an intersection and construction of two cul-de-sacs.
Since 1982, the federally funded Virginia Community Development Block Grant (VCDBG) program has been administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (VDHCD). Virginia receives up to $19 million annually for its “small cities” grant program.
The grants are awarded through a competitive process. Most projects benefit low- and moderate-income persons, and many projects are targeted for the prevention or elimination of slums and blight conditions.
The Dora Highway revitalization is a multi-year project, meaning it will receive a contract allocating funds for one year. After achieving specific performance targets, it will then be eligible for another year of funding.
