City Seeks Feedback On Plan To Assess Affordable Housing

SANDY SPRINGS, GA — The city of Sandy Springs next week will host a public input meeting to obtain feedback on its Consolidated Plan for Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs. The input meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13 in the Council Chambers at Sandy Springs City Hall.

City staff will provide an overview of the city’s Annual Action Plan, which describes the tools and strategies it plans to use in meeting the plan’s objectives. Information gathered during the December meeting will be used as part of a Needs Assessment meeting planned for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, at City Hall. During that meeting, residents will provide city staff with input regarding the development of the draft Consolidated Plan.

The Consolidated Plan is a required assessment and framework which identifies housing and community development priorities for the city’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. It’s designed to help Sandy Springs assess its affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, used to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. Grant recipients are required to report progress made through publication of a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).
