HOT SPRINGS -- Residents are invited to attend a Community Development Advisory Committee meeting at 1 pm on Thursday, January 2 in the Board Chambers at City Hall, 133 Convention Boulevard, to review results of a recent survey to voice comments regarding a related amendment to the CDBG housing rehabilitation program.
This amendment will have a direct effect on the CDBG housing rehabilitation program by either decreasing or eliminating the funding available to low- and moderate-income households for major and minor home repairs.
The amendment may provide funds for neighborhood revitalization infrastructure and affordable housing related projects such as sidewalks, streets, city parks, drainage improvements, empty lot development, home-buyer education program and demolition of condemned buildings.
In a recent citizen participation survey, 78% of residents preferred funding neighborhood revitalization projects, 19% preferred housing rehabilitation, and 3% preferred both. The complete survey results report can be viewed online at cityhs.net or at the Planning & Development office, 133 Convention Boulevard.
Written comments regarding the amendment are encouraged, and should be directed to Michelle Sestili, Planning & Development Department, City of Hot Springs, 133 Convention Boulevard, Hot Springs, AR 71901 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments received in writing before January 2 will be read at the public meeting. The city board chambers is fully accessible. Non-English speaking and hearing-impaired residents may request accommodations in advance by calling 276-7934 or emailing email@example.com .
