NOTICE OF CITYWIDE PUBLIC HEARING COMMUNITY NEEDS HEARING

Posted

TO:                  Citizens of the City of Lansing

FROM:             Andy Schor, Mayor

Notice is hereby given that the City of Lansing Planning Board will hold a public hearing to solicit public input on community needs and priorities for housing, public facilities and economic development. As required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Lansing is in the development stages of its Annual Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2023 which covers the time period July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024.  

The annual planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the following block grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).  These program funds have been historically used for such activities as: housing rehabilitation, weatherization, public services, economic development, public improvements, new construction, down payment assistance and programs/services to assist the homeless.    

The City encourages participation at public hearings to allow citizens an opportunity to provide input and indicate needs, views and proposals for the use of CDBG, HOME, and ESG program funds, more specifically regarding housing and non-housing community development needs within the City of Lansing relevant to preparation of the plan.                                                                         

Comments received will be considered in drafting the City's Annual Action Plan.  The proposed use of CDBG, HOME and ESG program funds will be submitted to Lansing City Council for approval.   Please note that identifying housing and community development needs in the Lansing area is a community effort and public participation is strongly encouraged.                                                                                                                              

This is an opportunity for all citizens and neighborhood organizations to participate in the planning process and influence future programming and use of these federally funded programs.
