Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) grant are programs administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The programs provide funding in support of low and moderate-income persons and neighborhoods in Westminster. The grant amounts are based on population size and the number of low- to moderate-income persons residing in the community. Any project or program funded with these federal dollars must meet specific eligibility criteria set by HUD, address a community need, and meet a national objective of the program.

If you are interested in receiving email updates on Westminster’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, please contact the CDBG team and they will add your name to the list.

  • 73rd and Lowell

    Asbestos Abatement and Demolition at 7287 Lowell Blvd and 3630 West 73rd Ave

     Scope

    • Abate the asbestos located in the exterior and interior of both buildings. All asbestos abatement activities are in accordance with Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) regulations, permitting, and guidance.
    • Asbestos abatement will require the buildings to be tented and a generator to be on at all times during this time (estimated two weeks).
    • Demolish both buildings after certification from CDPHE the asbestos is abatement is complete.
    • Disconnect water and sanitary sewer service lines.

    Timeline

    Asbestos abatement will begin June 2021. Demolition and site cleanup will start sequentially in July 2021. All work is expected to be complete in July 2021.

    Current Work

    The project team has obtained all necessary permits from CDPHE to start the asbestos abatement.

    For more details, contact:  Seth Plas at (303) 658-2096

    In December 2020, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) completed a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Part 50 environmental review of the site in anticipation of application to HUD for approval to use federal funds for the development. This review requires the City to perform site clean-up that is detailed in a Voluntary Clean Up Plan (VCUP).  The VCUP is overseen by environmental engineers and each activity is documented and reported to the Colorado Department of Housing and Urban Development  (CDPHE).

    Additionally, the State of Colorado has been performing groundwater monitoring and mitigation at the site for the past decade. The purpose of the State monitoring is to determine the extent of a plume of contaminated groundwater created by an historic underground storage tank associated with a gasoline station operated on the north-west corner of the intersection. The ground water contamination has been tracked and monitored and will be mitigated during development. Any housing built on the site will be served by City water, so the groundwater will not be a factor in the use of the site.

    The City will complete demolition and site clean-up on the three parcels located on the south-west corner of West 73rd Avenue and Lowell Boulevard between March and July 2021.  The clean-up process includes asbestos abatement during the initial deconstruction of the buildings, demolition of structures on site, removal of all debris and soils testing in compliance with required environmental remediation.

    The associated environmental assessment documentation is posted below.
