This notice provides the public an opportunity to examine and comment on the amended Citizen Participation Plan for the City of Sioux Falls. The City is required to adopt a Citizen Participation Plan that sets forth its policies and procedures for citizen participation related to the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs. The City will provide adequate information to citizens, hold public hearings to obtain views of citizens, and provide citizens an opportunity to comment on the City’s community development performance.
The plan is available online at https://www.siouxfalls.org/planning-dev/planning/affordable-housing/citizen-participation. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the closure of libraries and City Center, hard copies of the Citizen Participation will not be made available at those locations. Citizens may request a hard copy of the plan from firstname.lastname@example.org or by dialing 367-8180. The Citizen Participation Plan may be made available in Spanish upon request.
We invite the citizens of Sioux Falls to submit comments regarding the amended Citizen Participation Plan. People of low- and moderate-income, people who are homeless, racial and ethnic minorities, people of limited English proficiency, people with disabilities, female-headed households, and entities that provide services to these populations are specifically encouraged to review the plan. People wishing to comment have two means to do so. They may do so in writing to email@example.com; or they may call in to a virtual public hearing held by Housing Division staff on May 6, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. by dialing 605-367-8898 and entering the participant code 778-0401 for anyone wishing to discuss written comments. Written comments must include the name and address of the person submitting the comment.
