Community Development Advisory Committee Seeks Feedback
Bryan’s Community Development Advisory Committee is holding three public hearings at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 8, to gather feedback on eligible activities for the 2010-2011 year, public comments on community needs for the Five-Year Consolidated Plan and public comments on fair housing issues.
The hearings will be held in the Basement Training Room at Bryan City Hall, 300 South Texas Ave.
The City of Bryan receives approximately $1.4 million per year in federal Community Development funding, which can be used to address various needs, including housing rehabilitation, homebuyer assistance, housing development, public facilities, infrastructure, economic development, elimination of blighted structures and the funding of non-profit Community Housing Development Corporations and non-profit public service agencies.
A citizen needs survey is now online to collect data from low- to moderate-income citizens, or those residing in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. The data will contribute to determining the use of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Grant (HOME) funds for the upcoming 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan period.
The Consolidated Plan will be adopted by the City Council in July for submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in August. A series of six public meetings, hosted by the Community Development Advisory Committee, also will be held to solicit citizen input.
The survey document (in English and Spanish) and meeting schedule may be downloaded online from the Community Development Services Department website at http://www.bryantx.gov/departments/?name=community
