Resolution creating interagency housing plan approved by Council
The Common Council during today’s meeting (Tuesday, January 19), approved of file #201188 – a resolution directing the Commissioner of City Development to collaborate with the Community Development Grants Administration, Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee, the City-County Task Force on Climate and Economic Equity, and other local stakeholders to develop a comprehensive, interagency housing plan. The file was sponsored by Common Council President Cavalier Johnson.
“Strong neighborhoods are the backbone of a strong city, and having strong neighborhoods starts with making housing affordable and accessible for everyone,” said President Johnson. “Making sure the City’s housing efforts are aligned across departments would increase efficiency and ultimately better serve residents. I believe the Commissioner of City Development is well positioned to coordinate these efforts among City agencies and leverage resources to create this comprehensive housing plan. I look forward to seeing the final plan later this year.”
The resolution solidifies a footnote placed in amendment 1E of the 2021 City budget, and states that the Commissioner of City Development shall present the interagency housing plan to the Common Council within 6 months of adoption.
