Stated the project was set for last year. Stated it is awarded on a point system. Stated this will affect ten (10) lots on Northwood and south side of West Main directly behind the Northwood homes.

Stated this area was qualified through a survey. Stated there are no areas within the Village categorized as low to moderate income, which necessitated the County surveying each household.
