Waynesboro Drafts Community Participation Plan

WAYNESBORO, Va -- If you live in Waynesboro, you could soon start seeing some improvements around the city.

The city received a $200,000 grant and now they're asking the people how it should be spent.

The city received the grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to help build the city infrastructure.

City leaders are drafting a citizen participation plan which will partly involve public hearings on how the money should be spent.

Areas like Harrisonburg have been receiving the grant since 2004.

Many people in Waynesboro say there's lots of work to be done in the city.

"I think our priority is the sidewalks. They're cracked where you can't walk on them, naturally it's the tress that grow under them and you have to be careful because you'll fall," says Rose Mary Horvath, who lives in Waynesboro.

There's no word yet on when the plan will be finished.
