Goldsboro citizens are invited to a public hearing at 7 p.m. on Nov. 20, during the regular meeting of the Goldsboro City Council, to review and provide input on the amended Citizen Participation Plan.
The meeting is being held at the Council Chambers at City Hall, 214 N. Center Street, Goldsboro
The purpose of this public hearing will be to review the substantial amendment made to the City’s Citizen Participation Plan as a result of HUD’s monitoring of the City’s FY19 & FY20 CDBG Program Years.
The amendment includes the definition of “low- to moderate-income household,” which states that these are households which have an income of less than 80% of the area median income (AMI), as well as define “low- to moderate-income neighborhoods,” which states that these are neighborhoods in which 51% or more of the households are low- to moderate-income households.
Additionally, the City of Goldsboro’s draft of the Citizen Participation Plan is available for public review and written comment from now through Dec. 1 at 5:00 p.m.
Copies are placed at public access sites such as the desk of the City Receptionist and the office of the City Clerk, both at the City Hall Addition, 200 North Center Street, the Wayne County Public Library, 1001 East Ash Street, the Housing Authority of the City of Goldsboro, 1729 Edgerton Street, and on the City’s website at goldsboronc.gov.
