Community Development Department Citizen Participation

The City is required to adopt and implement a Citizen Participation Plan. The Citizen Participation Plan provides citizens and other interested parties with opportunities to participate in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the CDBG program which primarily benefit Edinburg’s low-and moderate-income residents. This plan provide citizens with the following: reasonable and timely access to local meetings; an opportunity to review proposed activities and program performance; provide for timely written answers to written complaints and grievances; and provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and non-English speaking residents.

The City of Edinburg encourages citizen participation in the CDBG process through a series of public meetings, as well as through a published announcement prior to final project and program selection. Throughout the program year, citizens are given an opportunity to comment on all aspects of the City’s CDBG Program uses and performance.
