The City of Santa Clarita is encouraging residents to participate in a 21 question survey to provide feedback on housing and community development needs within the City.  The Community Development Survey is available online now through December 2013 at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SantaClarita_English.  A Spanish version is also available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SantaClarita_Spanish.

The City receives approximately $1.2 million in Community Development Block Grant funds each year for housing and community development projects.  The annual grants can be used to provide services such as youth sports programs, activities for disabled persons, and mental health counseling which benefit lower-income residents. New senior centers, community centers, or parks can also be achieved through Community Development Block Grant funding.  Survey results will help the City determine the greatest needs in the community and how to effectively distribute funds.

“I want to encourage residents to take a few minutes and participate in this survey.  The feedback we receive is so helpful when determining the highest and best use for these particular grant funds,” commented Mayor Bob Kellar.

For more information or to participate in the Community Development Survey, please contact Project Technician Terasa Sullivan at (661) 255-4368 or visit Santa-Clarita.com/Index.aspx?page=244.
