[ARCHIVED] Residents encouraged to participate in housing study

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 25, 2016

The City of Savannah’s Community Planning and Development Department is beginning development of an Assessment of Fair Housing that will identify patterns of integration and segregation; racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty; disparities in access to opportunity; and disproportionate housing needs. 

Based on the findings of this research, the Assessment of Fair Housing will propose fair and affordable housing strategies to overcome the identified fair housing barriers. The Assessment is a condition of the City’s receipt of HUD grant funds under the Community Development Block Grant program.

The assessment process will incorporate the opinions and perceptions of local residents, whose input is solicited both through community workshops detailed below and an online survey. 

Community Workshops:
  • Tuesday, November 1, 2016   – 6:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 2, 2016 – 3:00p.m. 
Location: Coastal Georgia Center, Cypress Banquet Room (# 115), 305 Fahm Street

These community workshops are open to the general public and will provide residents of Savannah an opportunity to have their input incorporated into the City’s Assessment. 

Online Survey
An online survey will also be available to receive public input from now until November 18 at www.surveymonkey.com/r/SavannahAFH

To learn more about the Assessment, how to contribute input, and to review a draft when it becomes available in January, visit the project website at www.SavannahAFH.com.
