City Seeks Input from Community on Affordable Housing
Posted Date: 1/21/2016 4:15 PM

The City of Greensboro and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro are hosting a series of four community meetings to get public input on the direction and priorities for a successful, sustainable, and affordable housing initiative.

 

The four public meetings will be held throughout the city:

  • January 25, 10 am to 12 noon at the McGirt-Horton Library, 2501 Phillips Ave.

  • January 26, 3-5 pm at the Hemphill Library, 2301 W. Vandalia Rd.

  • January 28, 6-8 pm at Shiloh Baptist Church, 1210 Eugene St.

  • February 4, 6-8 pm at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 1304 Merritt Dr.

“At these meetings, we are asking the public to provide their input on what they believe to be the most compelling issues, barriers, or concerns to create long-term solutions for affordable housing in Greensboro,” says Cynthia Blue, housing services division manager with the City of Greensboro. “We are also looking what it might take to meet the demand of 20,000 low-income renters. For this to be successful, we need community input.”

 

For more information, contact Valerie Moore, senior housing planner with the City of Greensboro, at 336-373-4636 or via e-mail. Registration, though not required, can be made through Connie Leeper with the Community Foundation at 336-379-9100 or via e-mail.
