Irving Residents Invited to

BY IRVING WEEKLY STAFF

Irving, Texas. March 7, 2021

Housing – it affects a community’s health, financial situation and even its commutes to work and school. The City of Irving needs resident feedback to develop a 20-year plan to help guide its actions that affect the availability, affordability and quality of housing. This plan will help inform decisions about the city’s housing assistance programs, planning and zoning, investments into parks, libraries, streets and water systems, as well as other budget items.

In order to obtain resident ideas and comments, the city is hosting two town hall meetings (held in-person and virtually) that will allow residents to talk with city representatives about housing issues. The city also created a survey that asks for the public’s suggestions regarding the types of housing and assistance programs it should consider. Take the survey now.

Before attending the forum, residents can review the first part of the plan – a brief document that:

  • Explains the concept of “housing affordability.”
  • Discusses when financial assistance is needed to encourage the development of affordable housing.
  • Proposes new approaches to encourage the preservation and production of housing.

TWO MEETINGS SCHEDULED

Meetings will be held in-person at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd., as well as virtually via Zoom.

Interested persons can RSVP for the meetings or have their email addresses to the list for future notifications on the project. RSVP now.
