Final Public Improvement Projects Meeting Monday, May 1st, 2023

Your voices were heard!  A special thank you to everyone who completed the survey regarding where the Village should focus its attention for improvements utilizing the Community Revitalization Grant we hope to receive. We received 357 online survey responses and received six paper surveys for a total of 363 responses (incredible participation!).  A public meeting was held on April 19th to further gather community thoughts for improvement projects. We appreciate the citizens who attended and helped foster discussion regarding how we can best utilize these funds if they are awarded to McComb. During this meeting, we looked at the highest-ranking items in the survey and discussed ways we might be able to tie some of them together with this grant. We have been advised by our grant writer that focusing the grant funds into one single “area” of the Village is received more favorably, so we are working on creative ideas on how to best do that utilizing the input we received from the survey responses. A community center / recreation center, along with improving the children’s play area at the park, both received high priority.  One additional public meeting will be held on Monday, May 1 at 5:30 PM to gain further community input into the top priority projects. We will then complete the grant application, detailing how we would spend the $700,000 grant with corresponding quotes.  We are very thankful for the community’s survey participation and will utilize the collected data as we continue to seek additional grant opportunities as we work to make improvements to our wonderful Village!
