Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive plan to invest federal, state and local funds in a wide range of projects and programs targeted to meet the City’s housing and community development needs. It also explains how the City will remove barriers to housing opportunities.
The City identified those barriers through:
- A review of the City’s land use and housing plans
- A review of housing, economic, social, disability and segregation data
- Interviews, meetings and surveys to gain input from stakeholder organizations
- A survey and a public hearing to gather input from the public
The result was a 2011 report – Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. That analysis was then updated in 2013.
The Analysis on the City’s website identifies five key impediments that can be addressed through the City’s housing and community development policies. It also includes the data and the process that led the City to identify those impediments.
