Notice of Public Hearings – Minneapolis 2020 Consolidated Plan

The City will hold three public hearings on the proposed City of Minneapolis Budget on November 7, December 4 and 11, 2019 in the City Council Chambers (Room 317), 350 South Fifth Street.

The City is interested in your views on community development and housing needs and how the 2020 City budget can address these needs. Your comments will inform the City’s 2020 Consolidated Plan application to U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for community entitlement grant funds. Minneapolis uses these funds for programs benefitting low and moderate-income residents.

Additional information regarding the public hearings, the proposed 2020 budget and grant estimates can be found here.

The full budget can be found at: www.minneapolismn.gov/budget/2020-budget

The public hearings are scheduled for the following times:

  • November 7- 9:30am
