Community Development Advisory Committee to hold public meeting
The City of Bryan’s Community Development Advisory Committee will hold their regular scheduled monthly public meeting on Thursday, June 28 at 6:00 p.m. at the Neal Recreation Center, 600 N. Randolph, Bryan, Texas 77803.
The Committee provides advisory recommendations for federal funding, which is administered through the Community Development Services Department. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) provide programs that benefit primarily low and moderate income citizens and special needs populations.
During the public meeting there will be two public hearings. The first will include a presentation by staff on the draft 2012 Consolidated Action Plan (CAP). The CAP includes recommendations for the funding of specific projects that will enable the City to meet goals and objectives as identified in the 5 Year Consolidated Plan. The Department provides several housing programs designed to preserve and increase housing stock, upgrade deteriorating neighborhoods, and improve living conditions by offering eligible citizens home owner occupied rehabilitation/reconstruction, minor repairs, and home buyer’s assistance. Staff also works with local developers to increase new housing stock, creating new opportunities for homeownership and by providing technical assistance for rental property improvements. In addition, the City funds eligible non-profit agencies that provide health and human services directly to clients through a joint process with the City of College Station on an annual basis.
The second public hearing will be a presentation by staff on Fair Housing / Affirmative Marketing Plan. Both public hearings will give the public an opportunity to make comments. Comments will be accepted until July 31, 2012. The 2012 CAP is scheduled to be reviewed by City Council on or about July 10, 2012.
