Finalizing an eight-month process with the City of Evans, a subrecipient agreement for the Idaho Street Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) project was approved Wednesday by the Weld County Board of Commissioners.

“All three agreements have now been signed for the CDBG projects that were approved earlier this year,” Commissioner Chair Steve Moreno said. “It’s nice to see these projects moving forward to help our constituents and communities.”

The Evans Idaho Street project consists of two blocks, including sidewalks, of Idaho Street being paved along with replacing a water line and storm drainage system. The project, costing $1.8 million, will be partially funded by a $693,000 grant from the CDBG program and will help improve the neighborhood for 50 households. The project brings the neighborhood up to the standards of surrounding areas. It also aids in the city having an upgraded water line, storm drainage and sidewalk system, ensuring accessibility to parks, commercial areas and the Park-n-Ride, which allows residents the ability to get to needed services.

The subrecipient agreement, which is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the project to move forward, was approved by the City of Evans at its May 4 City Council meeting and the agreement was signed by the City Manager on December 14.
