Background Discussion

Manatee County has adopted policies and strategies for use of Federal funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Recent changes in population and U.S. Census boundaries have resulted in a need to review these policies and strategies.

An analysis and subsequent Rubonia Neighborhood Action Plan has been prepared to potentially designate the Rubonia area for use of HUD funding based on local conditions and income levels. 

Staff is here today to present findings of the draft Plan, along with identified neighborhood development activities to improve conditions in the Rubonia Neighborhood. 

Staff will also discuss the 2016 summer program recently held at the Rubonia Community Center and the status of potential Children's Services Dedicated Millage funding.
