Purpose and Recommended Action
Recommendation
 
This is a request for City Council to waive reading beyond the title and adopt a resolution approving the City of Glendale's Capital Fund Annual Statement/Performance and Evaluation Report for Federal Fiscal Year 2015 and the updated Capital Fund Five-Year Action Plan for Federal Fiscal Years 2015-2019, and authorize the submission of these documents to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Background
 
Public housing capital funds are used for the modernization and improvements of the City's three public housing communities in order to provide Glendale's families with safe, decent and affordable housing.  Cumulatively, the three public housing communities house 155 low income families.  The three facilities are the Lamar Homes located at West Lamar Road and 61st Avenue (constructed in 1942); the Glendale Homes located at West Ocotillo Road and 52nd Avenue (constructed in 1952); and the Cholla Vista Apartment Complex located at 5320 West Maryland Avenue (constructed in 1986). The public housing capital grants are received from the Federal Government each year and in FY 14-15, the City received $193,954.
 
In accordance with Federal Law, the City is required to submit a 5-year capital plan and annual statement/performance report as a condition of receiving actual capital funds from HUD.
Analysis
 
The "Capital Fund Five Year Action Plan" submittal documents consist of form HUD 50075.1, "Annual Statement/Performance and Evaluation Report," and form HUD 50075.2, "Capital Fund Program-Five-Year Action Plan, hereafter, "2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan."
 
On February 19, 2015, Glendale Community Housing presented the 2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan to the Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC), and a public hearing was conducted.  The CDAC unanimously recommended the 2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan for approval by City Council, with no suggested changes.  No members of the public attended the public hearing.
 
Community Benefit/Public Involvement
 
The City Council last approved the City of Glendale's Capital Fund Annual Statement/Performance and Evaluation Report for Federal Fiscal Year 2014 and the updated
CFP Five-Year Action Plan for Federal Fiscal Years 2014-2018, on March 25, 2014.
 
The Glendale Community Housing Division solicited input from staff, program participants, and the general public on any proposed revisions or modifications to the 2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan, during a 45-day public comment period, which began on January 1, 2015.  The public comment period and public hearing on the 2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan was posted in the Glendale Star, was available for review at the Glendale Community Housing administrative office, and was also posted on the City's web site.  The Plan was also submitted to the City Clerk for public access.
Budget and Financial Impacts
 
There are no costs associated with the 2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan review, approval and submission process.  Submitting the 2015-2019 CFP Five Year Action Plan to HUD allows the City's Community Housing Division to continue to receive federal funds for Public Housing modernization projects.
