Residents are invited to make a comment during the five- day comment period, now through Monday, June 8, for the City’s substantial amendments to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan, 2019 Action Plan, and Citizen Public Participation Plan.

The substantial amendments to the Consolidated Plan, Action Plan, and Citizen Participation Plan documents may be viewed online at cityofevanston.org/hudconsolidatedplan

Comments may be submitted by email to cbdg@cityofevanston.org by 4:30 p.m. on June 8 or by telephone or video conference during the live public comment period of the June 8 virtual City Council meeting held at 5:30 p.m. Residents who wish to participate in live City Council public commenting should sign up at cityofevanston.org/publiccomment on the day of the meeting. 

Evanston City Council meetings have been modified during the COVID-19 pandemic, based on Governor Pritzker’s Order, which waives some requirements of the Illinois Open Meetings Act to allow local governments and other public bodies to hold “remote” meetings to help control the spread of COVID-19.

The City of Evanston is amending its HUD Citizen Participation Plan, as allowed under the CARES Act. These amendments are based on HUD's recognition that the efforts to contain COVID-19 require limiting public gatherings used to obtain citizen participation, and the need to respond quickly to the growing spread and effects of COVID-19, while providing residents and stakeholders reasonable notice and opportunity to comment.

For more information, please call or text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents in Evanston may simply dial 3-1-1.
