Several roadways in Bryan will soon be safer for motorists during heavy rainfall, thanks to a grant the City of Bryan recently received from the state Flood Infrastructure Fund.
What: Community Development Advisory Council (CDAC) public meeting
When: 6 p.m., June 25, 2020
Where: Virtual meeting. For meeting information, call 979.209.5175.
During the CDAC’s regular meeting this month, residents have the opportunity to comment during two public hearings. In addition to the regular agenda, two public hearings will be held for the 5-Year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, 2020 Annual Action Plan and the updated Fair Housing Analysis of Impediment, relative to citizen participation for Community Planning and Development Programs and Fair Housing.
The 5-Year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan was developed after extensive research and data collection (interviews, consultations, surveys, secondary data, public meeting and focus group meetings) and analysis of this data to develop goals and objectives to address local community needs for housing and non-housing. Funding and technical assistance is provided through current programs as part of the city’s Annual Action Plan.
The programs primarily targets low-and moderate-income residents for a variety of needs, such as owner occupied housing repairs and major reconstruction, emergency rental assistance, home purchasing, infill housing development, increasing the availability and affordability of housing and the removal of unsafe housing. Current programs also include the funding of local nonprofits who provide direct health/social services to residents and an economic development program for working capital and job retention (of low- and moderate-income persons).
Full drafts of the proposed plans will be posted on June 25, 2020 on the Community Development webpage.
