Fair housing to be forum topic

May 02, 2012

The public is invited to one or more community meetings to discuss fair housing choice in Snohomish County and the jurisdictions within the county.

These meetings are part of a fair housing barriers study currently underway.

The study is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is being done by a Denver consulting firm, BBC, that specializes in this type of research.

Meetings are scheduled:

• 3-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, at Stillaguamish Senior Center, Annex Building, 18308 Smokey Point Blvd., Arlington

• 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, at Monroe Fire Department, 163 Village Court, Monroe

• Noon-1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 3, at the VOA Learning Center’s Hurricane Room, 16300 Motor Place, Lynnwood.

These meetings are appropriate for all residents of Snohomish County.

Organizers are particularly interested in learning about fair housing barriers faced by racial and ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, refugees and immigrants, residents living in single parent and same-sex partner households, and low income households.

The forum facilities are accessible. If you need a reasonable accommodation to enable you to participate fully in the community forum, contact Sue Tracy, Snohomish County Human Services, by email at sue.tracy@snoco.org, by phone at 425-388-3269 or by TTY at 711.
