Casper City Council To Schedule Fair Housing Hearing

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

A public hearing date to gather input on the state of Casper’s housing will be established at Tuesday’s city council meeting. A draft report created for the Wyoming Community Development Authority, to be released this Friday, looks at any impediments to fair housing that may exist in either the public or private sector.

“Some of the things it addresses are the potential for discrimination, such as the refusal to rent or negotiate for rental. Also just discriminatory patterns in the home loan purchase.”

Casper’s Urban Renewal Manager, Kale Prewitt, says the report, entitled Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choices, will be available on the city’s website by October 19th. The written comment period opens Wednesday October 17th and continues to November 15th, with the city council public hearing held on November 6th.

Prewitt, says its all part of a process undertaken every three to five years in order for the city to receive Community Block Grant Funds used to improve housing in the city. CDBG funds go toward things like housing rehabilitation, city core redevelopment, and emergency repairs.
