 PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING ADOPTION OF THE ANNUAL PLAN UPDATE FOR FISCAL YEAR 2003-2004

 

CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 2134 MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WAY

 

May 20, 2003, 6:00 P.M.

 

The Berkeley Housing Authority (BHA) is proposing adoption of the Agency’s Annual Plan update for Fiscal Year 2003-2004.  The Plan outlines the BHA goals and objectives for Fiscal Year 2003 for its Section 8 and Public Housing Programs.  Public housing authorities are required to adopt the updated Plan as mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

 

The Draft Plan was published on April 4, 2003, which commenced a 45-day public comment period.  During this time, the public has the opportunity to comment on the Plan’s contents.  Copies of the Plan are available for review during normal business hours at the following locations: 1901 Fairview Street (Berkeley Housing Authority), 2180 Milvia Street (Housing Department), and 2090 Kittredge Street (Berkeley Central Library).  

 

The Draft Plan was prepared with the assistance and input from the Resident Advisory Board (RAB).  The ten members of the RAB consist of five Section 8 participants appointed by the BHA Board and the five members of the Public Housing Resident Council.  The specific role of the RAB is to advise the BHA on the development and update of the Agency’s Annual Plan update. 

 

For further information, contact the Berkeley Housing Authority at (510) 981-5470.

 

Anyone wishing to speak at the public hearing may receive a speaker card from the City Clerk at the start of the Authority meeting up until the closure of the public hearing.

 

Written comments should be mailed or delivered directly to the City Clerk, 2180 Milvia Street, Berkeley, CA 94704, in order to ensure delivery to all Authority Members and inclusion in the agenda packet.  Comments received not later than Monday, May 12, 2003, will be included in Authority agenda packets.  Comments received thereafter will be submitted to the Authority as supplemental communications prior to the meeting.   For further information, call Sherry M.
