Assessment of Fair Housing Meetings

The City of Mentor is conducting a series of Assessment of Fair Housing meetings as required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under its Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule. The Assessment is a necessary and required component of the City’s participation in the Community Development Block Grant program.

Public input is necessary to complete a fully-informed assessment of the issues surrounding fair housing in our community.

The City is opening these meetings to anyone who wishes to participate, even if you do not live in the City.

To make these meetings inclusive, open and available to everyone the same initial meeting will be held on three different weekdays, one weeknight and another on Saturday morning. The intent of this initial meeting will be to open a dialog on what Fair Housing is, and what issues face the community regarding fair access to housing free from discrimination. The intent of the Assessment will be to create attainable, meaningful goals that remove the limits on housing choice. Once all comments from the community are compiled and the technical research is completed a single, final meeting will be held during the first week of December to review the draft report before being presented to HUD.
