PUBLIC NOTICE

 

45-day Public Review Period:

October 28 – December 12, 2019

 

THE BERKELEY HOUSING AUTHORITY AND CITY OF BERKELEY INVITE PUBLIC COMMENT REGARDING THE ALAMEDA COUNTY REGIONAL

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing

 

Jurisdictions which are eligible to receive federal funding from housing and community development programs administered by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are required to prepare a Consolidated Plan and Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing which outlines demographics, jurisdictional analysis of impediments, conclusions and recommendations for fair housing activities. The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing is a planning document built on public participation and intergovernmental consultation.

 

The County of Alameda and the cities of Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Dublin, Emeryville, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Newark, Oakland, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Leandro, and Union City along with the Housing Authorities for the Cities of Alameda, Berkeley, Livermore, Oakland and Alameda County have formed a working group to develop a regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing.

 

The purpose of the Regional AI is to gather data and community feedback, identify specific impediments or barriers to fair housing within Alameda County, and then to come up with viable solutions, or actions to take against identified impediments.

 

In May 2020, the local jurisdictions will adopt a Five-Year Consolidated Plan.  As part of the Consolidated Plan an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI) must be updated every five years.  The last AI was updated in January 2015.

 

The Draft Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing will be available to the public beginning October 28, 2019 on the website for BHA and the City of Berkeley: www.cityofberkeley.info/bha; https://www.cityofberkeley.info/ContentDisplay.aspx?id=36278The 45 day public review and comment period will end December 12, 2019.
