Jefferson City Public Meeting on Fair Housing Choice

A public notice from the city government of Jefferson City, Missouri:

The City of Jefferson will hold a Public Meeting in the Council Chambers on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 4:30 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. at City Hall, located at 320 East McCarty Street, Jefferson, MO 65101. This meeting is intended to inform Jefferson City residents about the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI), as well as provide an opportunity for all to participate in the AI planning process.

Entitlement communities like Jefferson City are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to complete an AI every five years. HUD defines an impediment to fair housing choice as any actions, omissions, or decisions that restrict, or have the effect of restricting, the availability of housing choices, based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.

Persons living and working in Jefferson City are encouraged to attend and provide input. Anyone unable to attend this meeting but wishing to make their views known may do so by submitting written comments to: City of Jefferson Planning and Protective Services Department, 320 East McCarty Street, Jefferson, City MO 65101. Comments may be emailed to the Department of Planning and Protective services at Please use “Fair Housing” as the subject line.

Individuals should contact the ADA Coordinator at (573) 634-6570 to request accommodations or alternative formats as required under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please allow 72 business hours to process the request.

Note to readers: the reference to "72 business hours" in the paragraph immediately above may be a mistake. The probable intended meaning is "72 hours," or, in effect, three business days.  72 "business hours" is the equivalent of nine business days, and the public meeting is just eight calendar days from the date of this post.
