A.P. Receives $10 Mil CDBG Grant For Major Infrastructure work
(Includes N. McCampbell)
Thanks to the Community Development Block Grant and the Texas General Land Office, the City of Aransas Pass will receive $10 mil to address major infrastructure work. This includes N. McCampbell and several other drainage and sewer system improvements in town that already had problems but were made worse by Hurricane Harvey. N. McCampbell will be a very high priority (see picture above right). This grant also will allow the City to address several of the high priority projects listed in the recently completed city-wide drainage study. The successful application of this grant is possible because of the work of Mayor Ram Gomez and City Council Members, Billy Ellis, Vicki Abrego, Jan Moore, and Carrie Scruggs. The streets in the graphic below are just a few of the sections of roads under this grant that will see flood, drainage and sewer improvements. Also, as this work is completed, many sections of these streets also will be improved.
“This grant is a major accomplishment for the City of Aransas Pass. It allows us to address some major long-delayed flood, drainage and sewerline infrastructure projects. Work should begin fairly soon. Another great thing about this grant is that the City has no matching dollars.”
