The city is inviting the public to help develop a five-year plan for using federal money to promote affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization.
The Neighborhood Congress meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Activity and Recreation Center, 1701 W. Ash St. Those who attend will provide input and feedback to city staff working to draft the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan.
The plan is a strategic document that guides the city's efforts to spend local money, along with federal Community Development Block Grants and HOME grants. Goals in the plan will center around affordable housing, economic development, neighborhood infrastructure and assistance for nonprofit organizations.
The city's Housing Programs Division is planning a series of public engagement events on the plan. For further information, contact Randy Cole at Randall.Cole@CoMo.gov.
Supervising editor is Scott Swafford.
