NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND HEARINGS ON
DRAFT 2015-2020 CONSOLIDATED PLAN AND 2015 ACTION PLAN

Washington County, City of Beaverton and City of Hillsboro

The Consolidated Plan is a strategic planning document, resulting from 18 months of planning and public participation, which sets local strategies and priorities for allocating the federal funding over the five-year timeframe. It acts as a combined plan and application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for federal funds available to counties and cities under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) formula programs. Washington County, the City of Beaverton and the City of Hillsboro each receive an annual CDBG entitlement grant. In addition, Washington County annually receives HOME and ESG program funds on behalf of the entire county.  Action Plans are annual components of the Consolidated Plan that specifically describe how Washington County and the City of Beaverton will spend scarce federal resources over a one-year period for activities serving low- and moderate-income persons, the homeless, and persons with special needs.

The Draft 2015 –2020 Consolidated Plan and the 2015 Action Plan are available for public review and comment from Tuesday, March 10 through Thursday, April 9, 2015. Copies can be found during regular business hours at all Washington County Cooperative Library branches and the City of Beaverton's Development Division located at The Beaverton Building at "The Beaverton Round" (address below).

============================================================

AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC COMMENT THROUGH FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2015


A "draft of the draft" of the 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan is out for an "unofficial" comment period to hear preliminary feedback from partner agencies regarding the data contained in the Consolidated Plan.  This review will be over on Friday, February 20th. 

When reviewing this draft, keep in mind some caveats:

  • The formatting is a work in progress.  We are leaving final corrections until the official draft version is released in March.  Chapters 5 and 6 specifically are still being formatted into InDesign so we are providing you pre-polished version of those chapters for content purposes.
  • The maps in chapter 5 do not have a sharp professional look, because they are downloads form other sites.  We are working to improve their appearance.
  • Volume 2, which will include the supporting documentation for certain activities of the planning process, in not available for review during this comment period.

The Year 1 Strategic Plan for 2015-2016 is the annual Strategic Plan that guides goals and strategies for Year 1 of the 2015-2020 Washington County Consolidated Plan for the CDBG, HOME and ESG programs.

The FY 2015 Washington County Objective Statements were developed through public outreach activities intended to gather and determine community development needs. The attached copy of Objective Statements is intended to be used by potential CDBG applicants to determine eligibility of a proposed project for the first year of the 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan.

Chapter 4 provides an overview of the federal Community Development Block Grant Program as well as Washington County's CDBG program by providing a summary of Washington County's non-housing needs for the 2015-2020 reporting period as well as an outline of the allocation process for Year 1 of Washington Count's CDBG programs.
