Public Hearing

YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND a public hearing to be held on Thursday evening, August 25, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the Unified Government Board of Commissioners Chambers in the Lobby of the Municipal Office Building 701 North 7th Street to consider and receive comment on an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH).

The Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) is a legal requirement that the Unified Government must complete in order to continue receiving federal housing and community development funding from the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Specifically, the AFH is a study undertaken pursuant to 24 CFR Part 5.154 that includes an analysis of fair housing data, an assessment of fair housing issues and contributing factors, and an identification of fair housing priorities and goals specific to Kansas City, Kansas and the region. Examples of fair housing issues include regional demographics, segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, access to opportunity, disproportionate housing need, publicly supported housing, access to persons with disabilities, and fair housing enforcement and outreach capacity.

The hearing will also open a 30 day public comment period during which a draft copy of the AFH will be available for public inspection and comment. Copies of the document will be available beginning August 26, 2016 and ending September 25, 2016 in the Community Development Department, Room 823 and the Unified Government Clerk’s Office, Room 323 at Municipal Office Building, 701 N. 7th Street, Kansas City, KS, 66101. The draft copy will also be available online at www.wycokck.org. Please submit all comments to Community Development Department, 701 North 7th Street, Room 823, Kansas City, Kansas 66101.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE!
