Community Development


With its community development program, the City strives to accomplish two primary goals:

People: Assist low-to-moderate- income residents
Place: Bring positive change to neighborhoods

The City accomplishes these goals with several approaches that include but are not limited to:

  • Development of new housing units to provide quality affordable housing to eligible residents
  • Installation of infrastructure to improve quality of life and stimulate investment in neighborhoods
  • Support of nonprofit organizations that provide services within the community for persons in need
  • Assist homeowners with repair and rehabilitation of their homes 
  • Down payment assistance for first time homebuyers
