New Discussion on LynchburgisListening: Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing
The public is invited to sign up at www.LynchburgisListening.com to participate in the City’s newest online item for discussion, the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI) in the City of Lynchburg. The complete report is available on the site, and the topic is open for public comment.
The draft Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (the AI) is a document required of jurisdictions that receive housing funds from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). As a recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds, the City must certify to HUD that its housing programs are implemented in a non-discriminatory manner. Undertaking the development of an AI fulfills this requirement.
The report includes an analysis of public and private sector policies, programs and statutes which impact the development, financing, regulation and siting of housing in the City. The City has identified within the AI, (a) impediments to fair housing choice and (b) recommended strategies that would eliminate the impediments to housing choice.
A public informational session will be held Monday, January 27, 6:00 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room at the Lynchburg Public Library, 2315 Memorial Avenue. Lynchburg City Council will conduct a public hearing regarding this on Tuesday, January 28 during its regular 7:30 p.m. meeting in City Council Chamber, City Hall, 900 Church Street.To participate in the online discussion, visit LynchburgisListening.com.
