The Community Facilities Planning Project
Thank you for attending CBCC’s Annual Potluck on November 4th at Miss Lucy’s to hear about the concept ideas we’ve received!
Where can the residents of St. John (of all ages) go to meet, learn, play, obtain government services or take shelter in Coral Bay?
So, what are we going to do about it?
Under this project funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Facilities Training and Technical Assistance (TAT) grant program, CBCC will be completing the following tasks using guidance from the USDA Rural Development Community Facilities Infrastructure Toolkit and the Community Places Community Planning Toolkits.
Do you have good ideas for community facilities, based on any of the icons here?
This initial phase of the Community Facilities Planning Project will result in 3 to 5 concepts that will be further discussed with the community in the next few months, and include developing feasible operations and management models. Key model criteria are: multi-purpose use, good management, effective local control and fiscal responsibility, while achieving success in delivering the facility’s service objectives. The planning process will also identify the preferred location and owners of the proposed facilities. (The concepts not chosen for design phase of this grant can still be assisted in getting to next steps of concept development, collaboration and fundraising.)
Throughout this project, CBCC will be researching grant opportunities and assisting in submitting applications for capital funding to develop the facilities on behalf of the future operator of each facility.
