Fair Housing Input Needed

Garland, Texas -- August 12, 2011 -- The City of Garland wants to hear from Garland residents about its fair housing programs and policies.  Feedback options include an online survey and in person.

The City of Garland will hold a Public Meeting on Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the South Garland Library, located at 4845 Broadway Blvd., Garland, Texas, 75043. This meeting is intended to inform Garland residents about the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI), as well as provide an opportunity for all to participate in the AI planning process.  
 
Entitlement communities like Garland are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to complete an AI every five years. HUD defines an impediment to fair housing choice as any actions, omissions, or decisions that restrict, or have the effect of restricting, the availability of housing choices, based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.
 
Persons living and working in Garland are encouraged to attend and provide input. Anyone unable to attend this meeting but wishing to make their views known may do so by submitting written comments to: Mona Woodard, Garland Neighborhood Services, at 972-205-3310. 
 
Individuals with disabilities requiring auxiliary aids or services should contact the City by writing or calling the following: Elaine Emmert at 972-205-3348 or by mail at 222 Carver, Suite B, Garland TX 75040.


Below is a link to a brief online survey, and we value your participation. The purpose of the survey is to gather information that will allow us to evaluate and assess current housing choices within the City of Garland.
