Title

Public Hearing: Substantial Amendment #3 to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) 2020-21 Annual Action Plan

 

 

Body

In August of 1994, the City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri (“City”) was designated as an Entitlement Community eligible to receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As an Entitlement Community, the City is required to adopt an Annual Action Plan for each program year that summarizes local actions being taken to address specific needs within the community. In May 2020, City Council adopted the 2020-21 Annual Action Plan; due to receiving two rounds of emergency COVID-19 funding, this plan was amended and adopted in July 2020 and January 2021.

 

As part of this adopted plan, the City has awarded $140,000 to Lee's Summit Housing Authority (LSHA) for exterior rehabilitation to units at the Duncan Estates complex. At the time of application, LSHA proposed to replace exterior windows, doors, porch columns, gutters, downspouts and soffits to all 66 units in the complex. Due to the increase in cost and availability of materials, LSHA is requesting to downsize the scope of work to 8 units, and to extend their contract date with the City through March 31, 2022. The request to complete 8 units will include all exterior improvements, including hardi-board siding. This would allow 8 units to be completely renovated on the exterior. With this request, the scope of work and beneficiary count would change by more than 50% which requires a substantial amendment to the 2020-21 Annual Action Plan. There will be no financial impact with this amendment request. 

 

This is a phased project, which has also received $203,305 of 2021-22 CDBG funding to complete 12 additional units.

 

Following the public hearing there will be a 30 day public review and comment period prior to the plan going to City Council for consideration.

 

 

Recommendation

I move that the CEDC recommends that the City Council approves the Amendment to the 2020-21 Annual Action Plan.
