The city of Sandy Springs will host a public meeting Dec. 13 at 6 p.m. at City Hall’s council chambers to gain citizen input on the city’s consolidated plan for U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs.

The city will provide an overview of its annual action plan, which describes the tools and strategies the city plans to use in meeting plan objectives. Information gathered during the December meeting will be used as part of a needs-assessment meeting planned for Jan. 10 at 6 p.m., also 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 funds. The consolidated plan is designed to help the city 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).
