The City of Doniphan will hold a public meeting on February 13, 2023, at 6:00 P.M. at the Doniphan City Hall located at 110 N. Grand Ave, Doniphan, MO 63935, to discuss its ongoing 18-DP-02 DR-4317 Voluntary Residential Flood Buyout project, funded by Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds. The City is interested in obtaining citizen input on the existing buyout zone and discussing eligibility, available assistance, the application process, and other needs related to the April – May 2017 flooding events within the city. At least 70% of the funds will be used to benefit low to moderate income persons. Due to the nature of a buyout, displacement of persons will be proposed.
The city’s ongoing residential voluntary buyout project includes assistance like relocation expenses and down payment assistance for those who qualify. The amount of the award is determined by the Missouri Department of Economic Development based on unmet housing needs. All citizens, especially those in the targeted area, are encouraged to attend.
For more information, or if you require special accommodations at the meeting, contact City Clerk Marti Porter at 573-996-2623.
