Citizen Participation Plan

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has mandated the City amend its current Citizen Participation Plan (last updated in 2010) for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement Program to account for waivers connected to COVID related activities. Updates also include the elimination of costly newspaper advertisements, citizen participation procedures for future disaster events, and the inclusion of digital and virtual methods of public notification and participation. 

Public comments on the draft plan will be accepted from May 5 - June 2, 2020. A public hearing will take place at the June 2nd City Council meeting on this matter.
