Community Development Committee

Purpose

To develop studies and applications as necessary and appropriate for 
recommendation to City Council relative to the expenditure of HUD Community 
Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds on an annual basis, and to advise the City 
Council on desired changes in the CDBG program during the fiscal year.

Powers

The Community Development Committee is advisory to the City Council on all 
matters related to the HUD CDBG program.  The Committee also advises staff on 
matters not necessitating City Council review.

Obligations

Committee members should be attuned to the primary purpose of the HUD CDBG 
project: providing benefits to low and moderate income people. Staff-prepared data related to alternate activities for annual budgeting needs to be examined and evaluated in light of HUD and city program objectives, for the benefit of the 
intended population.
