[ARCHIVED] Public meetings to discuss needs of low- and moderate-income areas

The City of Midland will host three public meetings in March to discuss the use of funds for the improvement of low- to moderate-income areas of Midland.

The City is preparing its new Consolidated Plan, which sets priority levels for various needs of these areas and will be a guide on the future use of Community Development Block Grant funds. Also being prepared is a new Analysis of Impediments for the CDBG program, which involves an assessment of how laws, regulations, policies and procedures affect the location, availability, and accessibility of housing, and how conditions, both private and public, affect fair housing choice.

The City will receive $656,282 Community Development Block Grant funds for the 2015-16 program year. These funds are federal grants divided up on a formula basis to 1,209 cities and states and are primarily intended for programs and projects to benefit low- and moderate-income individuals.

The meetings to discuss the distribution of these funds in Midland will take place on the following days:

- 7 p.m. on March 3 at the Southeast Senior Center (1803 E. Indiana Ave.)

- 7 p.m. on March 5 at Casa de Amigos (1101 E. Garden Lane)

- 1:30 p.m. on March 17 in the City Hall Council Chamber (300 N. Loraine)

A survey is also available to voice your opinion online. To take the survey, please visit www.midlandtexas.gov/CDBGsurvey.

For further information, please call the Community Development Office at 432-685-7472 or 432-685-7408.
