BACKGROUND:
  • On February 28, 1980, the City of Roswell Governing Body adopted Resolution No. 1767 “…Declaring the City Council’s Intent to Retain Urban Development Grant Money in the Airport Fund.”  
  • The UDAG application submitted was to “assist in project expansion by Transportation Manufacturing Corporation (TMC) at the Roswell Industrial Air Center (R.I.A.C.)”.  
  • Resolution No. 1767 directive was for the funds to be used for the industrial activities of TMC and “used to facilitate additional industrial development at the R.I.A.C.”

  • Acquisition of equipment 
  • Hanger Renovations & Improvements
  • Rehabilitation of Buildings
  • Hanger Addition
  • Installation of paint booth, heating system and air handling equipment

  • On August 2017, the Office of Policy Development and Coordination (OPDC) posted on the HUD Exchange web page a notice that the Community Planning and Development – Urban Development Action Grant (UDAG) portfolio was closed.
  • Since the program ended and grant closed, the HUD Community Planning and Development Office opinion is that there are no obligations from the entity with regards to use of the funds.
  • Resolution No. 1767 still remains in effect.
