The Community Impact Board approves grant money for projects in the Castle Valley area.

More than $8.6 million in grants and loans have been approved to help finance local improvement projects in rural communities across Utah. The funds were awarded by the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board for such projects as improvements to the Cedar City airport, a new city hall in Toquerville, and equipment for a mobile communications center in Uintah County. The Community Impact Board is a program of the Utah Division of Community Development. It helps state and local agencies and entities that are, or may be, directly or indirectly impacted by mineral resource development on nearby federal lands and the exclusion of those lands from the local tax base. The board provides assistance through grants and low-interest loans for the planning, construction, and maintenance of public facilities. The funds also help community agencies provide public services. The Community Impact Board's next regular funding meeting is scheduled for Dec. 2. Grants and/or loans were approved for the following entities:

Carbon County Building Authority - $376,570 grant, $1 million loan to construct the first phase of a building, including water sewer, and power infrastructure, to house the county's road shop and abatement operations.

Cleveland - $65,000 grant for the Emery County community to buy a new dump truck with a snow plow attachment.

Green River - $60,000 grant for renovations and repairs at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum in the Emery County city. Improvements include the replacement of four heating and air-conditioning units, roof repairs, and the installation of metal awnings.
