What does your community need? We are listening!

Does your neighborhood have access to good housing, schools, jobs, healthcare, and other resources?

The County of San Bernardino is updating its Consolidated Plan and working on a fair housing study called an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing choice.  These plans are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban  Development (HUD) for the County to receive federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

The Consolidated Plan assesses the current housing market, discusses characteristics of the county’s population, identifies community improvement priorities, and outlines a five-year plan to fund and implement them.

Consolidated Plan Topics of Discussion:

• Citizen Participation and Consultation

• Affordable Housing

• Public and Assisted Housing

• Homeless and Other Special Needs 

• Public Facilities and Services

• Barriers to Affordable Housing

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) will identify barriers to equal access to housing and neighborhood opportunities and will propose strategies to overcome those barriers.

AI Topics of Discussion:

• Public Investment

• Access to Opportunity

• Land Use & Zoning

• Housing

• Housing Discrimination and Hate Crimes

• Home Mortgage Disclosure Act

The community’s opinions and perceptions are an important part of this study, and everyone is invited to participate. Your input will provide essential information to local policymakers, staff, housing providers, lenders, and affordable housing advocates. Click here to participate in the survey.

    I find it interesting that the comment period as well as the survey is published no where. Seems intentional to avoid public comment once again. AND the community plan is filled with land use changes to promote Vacation Rentals which are a known deterrent to the development of low income housing. All this does is pad the pockets of the County with no regard for individual community needs!

    1. Hi Susan, This item was posted nearly two months ago and the survey period has now closed. You can find out more information about the Consolidated Plan here: https://img1.wsimg.com/blobby/go/91d4fc23-5e4f-4146-aab6-7e9b92e1c83d/downloads/Community%20Meeting%20Presentation%20Rev%206-27-19.pdf?ver=1564762425207
