The city is in the process of updating its 5-Year Consolidated Plan for 2021-2025, which is part of being an entitlement entity of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant funds. As part of updating its plan, the city is seeking public feedback through a survey that is a foundational component of the plan and will help in determining and prioritizing needs in the city and guide how grant funds awarded will be spent.
This survey principally provides for citizen-participation based feedback on current and emerging needs as well as give direction to future initiatives. The survey will be available through 5 p.m. Friday, April 30.
The 5-Year Consolidated Plan is similar to a company’s strategic business plan in that it sets the city’s long-term strategies and objectives for community needs. Additionally, it can be viewed as a business plan for a community’s housing and community development delivery system; complete with performance benchmarks and financial projections.
