Public Notice
FY15-FY19 Consolidated Plan & FY15 Action Plan Comment Period & Hearing
FY15 Federal Funding Estimates & Recommendations

As an entitlement community under Section 106 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, the City of Lakewood receives federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) funding directly from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).

Five-Year Consolidated Plan & Annual Action Plan
Every five (5) years, Lakewood prepares a Consolidated Plan. Based on a thorough analysis of market conditions and available resources, the Con Plan identifies and prioritizes the city’s housing and non-housing community and economic development needs; describes place-based strategies to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities, primarily for low-moderate income people; and establishes multi-year accomplishment goals in these areas. It is carried-out through a series of (5) Action Plans which serve as the city’s annual federal funding applications to HUD.

Lakewood is currently developing its FY15 Annual Action Plan and FY15-FY19 Five Year Consolidated Plan. These documents will be distributed for public review and a Public Hearing will be held to solicit feedback regarding their contents in accordance with federal regulations and citizen participation requirements.

Public Review & Comment Period
All interested persons are invited to review and comment on Lakewood’s FY15-FY19 Five Year Consolidated Plan and FY15 Annual Action Plan. Draft copies will be available from Thursday, October 16, 2014 through Friday, November 14, 2014 at both Lakewood public library branches (15425 Detroit Ave. & 13229 Madison Ave.); in Lakewood’s Department of Planning and Development (12650 Detroit Avenue, Basement Level); and via the city’s website at www.onelakewood.com. Please submit input prior to 5pm on Friday, November 14, 2014 to Dan Wyman, Development Officer, 12650 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood, OH, 44107; (216) 529-7680; daniel.wyman@lakewoodoh.net. A summary of feedback received, including comments not accepted and the reasons therefore, will be included in the final versions transmitted to HUD.

Public Hearing
A Public Hearing for the purpose of discussing and soliciting feedback regarding Lakewood’s FY15-FY19 Consolidated Plan and FY15 Action Plan will be held on Monday, October 27, 2014 at 6:30pm in the City Hall Auditorium, 12650 Detroit Ave. Citizen attendance and participation are strongly encouraged.

FY15 Federal Funding Estimates & Recommendations
Lakewood anticipates receiving the following FY15 federal funding allocations: CDBG ($1,700,000); ESG ($140,000); and HOME ($175,000); actual amounts may vary at the time of funding. Lakewood’s Citizens Advisory Committee convened (4) times between July 31 – August 27, 2014, including (2) Public Hearings, to review FY15 funding requests submitted by city departments and not-for-profit agencies then made the following allocation recommendations to City Council.
