Notice is hereby given that the City of Everett, acting through the Department of Planning and Development, will hold a public meeting on Thursday, December 28, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the Speaker George Keverian Room, 3rd floor, Everett City Hall, 484 Broadway, Everett, MA 02149.
The purpose of the meeting is to amend and update the City’s Community Development Strategy (CDS) and will include a discussion of Everett’s unmet housing and community development needs.
The CDS is based on various planning documents used by a community, and outlines a plan of action intended to accomplish specific community development goals that will have a positive impact on the community. A community’s CDS will identify the goals and objectives of community development efforts over a 3-to-5-year period and explain how the community expects to address the priorities with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and non-CDBG funds. Each activity included in a Massachusetts CDBG application must relate to and be reflected in the Strategy.
Any person or organization so wishing will be afforded an opportunity to be heard. Suggestions for CDS amendments may be made at the meeting or in writing to the Department of Planning and Development before the meeting. The City encourages a broad spectrum of participation by residents and other interested parties in order to better understand and serve the needs of the community. The meeting location is accessible to persons with physical disabilities. If you require a translator, an accommodation for a hearing impairment or other accommodation, contact the Department of Planning and Development no later than Tuesday, December 26, 2023, at City Hall, by contacting Matt Lattanzi email@example.com or calling 617-394-2334.
