Community Development

"Connecting the pieces for a stronger community"

Mission


The mission of the Department of Community Development is to utilize the grant funds it receives from Federal, State and Local government sources to aid in the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.

The Department's efforts in carrying out a wide range of community development activities are directed towards neighborhood revitalization, economic development, improved community facilities and services, and assisting those least likely to benefit from the economic growth and prosperity projected for the City.
