Hennepin County seeks comment on draft housing plan
Plymouth is part of a group of suburban cities in Hennepin County that coordinates affordable housing and development activities that use federal funding. Every year, this group submits an action plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development that shows how it plans to use federal funds from three programs for housing and development projects in the coming year.
Programs included in the plan:
- Community Development Block Grant
- HOME Investment Partnerships
- Emergency Solutions Grant
The 2019 housing and community development action plan identifies the proposed use of approximately $4.7 million in suburban Hennepin County communities. This document will play an important role in implementing housing and community development priorities in Plymouth during the coming year.
Copies of the draft plan are also available at Hennepin County Ridgedale, Southdale, and Brookdale libraries.
Comment on the draft plan
Hennepin County is hosting a public hearing to gather comments on the annual action plan:
Hennepin County Government Center Board Room (A-2400)
300 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis
Members of the public may also submit written comments April 1-30 to Julia Welle Ayres, Manager of Housing Development and Finance, Hennepin County Community Works Department, 701 4th Avenue South, Suite 400, Minneapolis, MN 55415.
