Arlington Heights Residents: The Village Needs Your Help

Do you live in the Village of Arlington Heights? If so, the Village needs your help.

From the Village of Arlington Heights website:

The Village is currently in the 5th year of the 2005-2009 Consolidated Plan and is seeking input on the development of the 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan. As part of this process, the Village is seeking public input to determine the Village’s current community needs.

The Consolidated Plan is a collaborative process whereby a community establishes a unified vision for community development actions. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires that entitlement jurisdictions that receive Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds look at the community as a whole, so each community can develop a vision that addresses issues such as affordable housing, adequate infrastructure, fair housing, civic design, the environment, and economic growth. The goals of the Consolidated Plan are to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities to benefit low and moderate-income residents.

The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive 5-year planning document that identifies the overall housing and community development needs of the Village, outlines available programs and resources, and establishes a strategy for prioritizing and addressing these needs.

The deadline for having your input heard is February 15th, so pass this along to your friends and family and take 2 minutes to fill out your survey now.
