The City of San Leandro will host two community meetings to discuss San Leandro’s housing, public facilities, and social service needs as part of its update to the Five-Year Consolidated Plan.  The Plan, required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), uses Census data and public comments to assess and prioritize San Leandro’s housing and community development needs. The final product of this process is a five-year strategic plan that establishes strategies for addressing those needs.  The Plan will cover the period from July 2020 through June 2025. 

City of San Leandro residents are invited to attend one or both of the following meetings:

January 21, 2020 – 6:30-8:00pm,Marina Community Center (Thunderbolt Room), 15301 Wicks Blvd.

January 29, 2020 – 6:30-8:00pm,Senior Center (Main Hall), 13909 East 14th Street.

 

The meetings are held to determine priority needs in the community in areas such as affordable housing, public facility improvements, and social services, including basic needs programs, homelessness, crisis shelters, and fair housing services.  Feedback received will be used to update the Plan. This document and grant application is what the City prepares to obtain annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME (HOME Investment Partnership Program) federal funding for local programs and projects that address the needs of city residents, especially low- and moderate-income residents. 

Individuals who are interested in attending a meeting but need special accommodations due to physical disabilities or need translation services should contact the City Clerk’s Office at 510-577-3351, TDD (510) 577-3343, five working days in advance of the meeting.
