[ARCHIVED] City seeks public input on amendments to plans related to CARES Act funds

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The City of Springfield’s draft Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Action Plan (AAP) Amendments and Disaster/Emergency Declaration Amendments to the Citizens Participation Plan (CPP), which contain the funding recommendations for the nearly $1 million in U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds, are available for public review and comment through 5 p.m. May 29.

An online survey was conducted May 1-7 to collect public input about the local economic impact of COVID-19 to help develop the City’s funding recommendations. The Citizens Advisory Committee for Community Development then held a public hearing on May 19 on the recommendations.

Written comments on both sets of amendments may be sent to batchley@springfieldmo.gov. All written comments received by noon on May 29 will be forwarded to City Council.

City Council will hold a first reading, public hearing, and possible vote on both sets of amendments at its June 1 meeting, which will take place virtually via teleconferencing technology at 6:30 p.m. at City Council Chambers, Historic City Hall, 830 Boonville Avenue.
