The City is now soliciting feedback on City Steps 2025, the City’s five-year Consolidated Plan for housing, jobs, and services for low- and moderate-income residents.

City Steps 2025 can be viewed online, and residents can provide public comment until Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020.

The Housing and Community Development Commission will hold a public meeting to accept oral or written comments, and to consider recommending City Steps 2025 to City Council, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019, in Room 202 at the Senior Center, 28 S. Linn Street.

City Council will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020, in Emma Harvat Hall at City Hall, to accept oral or written comments, and to consider adoption of the proposed Plan.

City Steps 2025 identifies housing and community development needs, priorities, and goals, which will guide the use of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) funds for City Fiscal Years 2021 through 2025. The five-year plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
