Public Comment Period and First Public Hearing on Draft 2017 Assessment of Fair Housing Plan

Join us Wed. August 2, 2017 at 2 p.m. at the Learning Resource Center, 4135 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor in the Michigan Room.

Pursuant to U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development regulations, notice is hereby given by the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development that two public hearings will be held and a public comment period available to solicit citizen input on the Draft Washtenaw Urban County Assessment of Fair Housing Plan. The Assessment of Fair Housing Plan (AFH Plan), developed jointly by the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development and the Ann Arbor Housing Commission, is a tool for local governments to address and reduce residential segregation and areas of concentrated poverty. The recommendations resulting from the AFH Plan will also inform the Fiscal Year 2018-2022 Five-Year Consolidated Plan for Washtenaw Urban County.

Beginning August 1, 2017, residents and interested parties can obtain the draft plan by contacting Tara Cohen at (734) 544-3056 or cohent@ewashtenaw.org or by downloading the plans from www.ewashtenaw.org/affh. The draft plan will be updated periodically during August and uploaded to the website, so interested parties are encouraged to check back.

A public comment period for the draft plan will begin on August 1, 2017 and end on September 3, 2017. If you would like to submit comments or request additional information, contact Tara Cohen at cohent@ewashtenaw.org or (734) 544-3056.
