The Ames City Council will discuss rental housing regulations and the draft of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan at its upcoming workshop scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, in the Ames City Council Chambers, 515 Clark Ave. The public is encouraged to attend and provide input.
The first hour of the workshop will include a presentation by City staff on the preparation of the 2019-2023 Consolidated Plan and 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan. The Consolidated Plan accomplishes a federal requirement to study the housing needs for the community. The City Council will discuss the findings and the City’s priorities for goals and programs to include within the Consolidated Plan and the 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan.
The second hour of the workshop will focus on rental housing. Recent changes to state law have invalidated parts of the City’s Rental Housing Code. The City Council will review the current law and discuss whether to pursue further modifications to rental housing regulations.
The City Council will not take action at this meeting, but follow-up action could be brought back at a future City Council meeting. Comments on either topic can be sent directly to the Ames City Council through email. The entire City Council can be reached by sending an email to MayorCouncil@city.ames.ia.us
