The City staff in the Community Development Department have wrapped up their 2009 Housing and Urban Development (HUD) report — called the CAPER — and they’ll be submitting it to HUD this week.
The report documents how we spent the Federal HUD dollars to achieve the purposes of serving the needs of low and moderate income families in our community neighborhoods.
As a Federal report, this document is chock full of details — which is great for accounting of the funds, but it’s less great when it comes to readability (if you’re counting, it weighs in at over 130 pages). So for those that just want to know the important stuff we put together a 2 page summary, which is shown below.
Also, it’s worth pointing out that a related new program, the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), is not covered in this report, but its accomplishments for last year include:
- City identified 9 properties for demolition.
- 6 of the 9 properties have been cleared by the courts for demolition and 5 of them are expected to be demolished by December. Remaining 3 properties still awaiting court action.
- City entered into contract with developer for the construction of 3 new residential structures. Construction expected to begin in early spring 2011.
Here’s the CAPER Executive Summary:
