[ARCHIVED] City identifies areas for improvement in fair housing choice in Midland

The City of Midland has prepared a draft Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice.

As a recipient of Community Development Block Grant funds, the City is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to identify the various factors that may affect fair housing choice in Midland and to develop an action plan to overcome them. The AI resulted in the identification of six major impediments to address in the next five years:

- Lack of affordable housing
- Areas of minority and/or low income concentration - Insufficient public awareness of fair housing
- Lack of affordable housing near the better schools - Private market barriers exist
- Policy bodies not diverse

The analysis may be viewed on the City's website at or at the following locations from Aug. 20 to Sept. 18:

- City Secretary’s Office (300 N. Loraine, Room 340, City Hall)

- Casa de Amigos (1101 E. Garden Lane)

- Midland County Centennial Branch Library (2503 W. Loop 250 N)

- Southeast Community Senior Center (1803 E. Indiana Ave.)

- Midland Senior Center (3303 W Illinois, Kingsway Mall #18)

- Midland County Housing Authority (1710 Edwards)

- City Housing Authority (700 W. Scharbauer Drive)

- Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center (2300 Butternut Lane)

- Downtown Midland County Public Library (301 W. Missouri Ave.)

Please direct any written comments to the City’s Community Development Division, PO Box 1152, Midland, Texas, 79702, by Sept. 18. The Midland City Council will consider approval of the analysis at a 10 a.m. public hearing on Sept. 22. For more information, call the City’s Community Development Office at 685-7408 or 685-7472.
