PURPOSE:

To consider a Resolution that list the strategies/goals and tasks for the next five years focusing on Operation Clean Sweep, Housing, Human Investment, Neighborhood Stabilization, Economic Development, Combating Crime, and Quality of Life.

 

NEED/IMPACT:

DeKalb County recognizes that blighted properties cause adverse impacts in the community, including depressing property values and limiting economic development opportunities, and there is a need to address those problems in a systematic and orderly fashion.  As such, the County the enacted resolutions in 2018 and 2019 identifying a number of goals and objectives that were designed to aid in the reduction of blight within the County.  However, the COVID-19 Pandemic created a health and economic development emergency causing various initiatives to be delayed while the County focused on providing vital services to citizens during the Pandemic.

 

The Resolution creates a roadmap listing the goals and tasks for eliminating blight for the next five years.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Special Project Coordinator position which was funded in the 2022 budget.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommended Action

To adopt the Revitalization and Elimination of Blight Goals and Task Plan to mitigate blighted properties that cause adverse impacts in unincorporated DeKalb County.
