News about the City of Muskegon, announcements and updates.
On Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 5:30 pm via zoom, the City Commission will consider a request to enter into an agreement with Community EnCompass to develop affordable housing.
Commissioner Ramsey has disclosed he has a conflict of interest with regard to projects and partnerships between the City of Muskegon and Community EnCompass. As an employee of Community EnCompass, he benefits from funds that are made available by the city to CenC and its programs.
The city benefits from its partnership with CenC by gaining residents who pay property and income taxes and purchase city utilities. CenC’s work to improve affordable housing options also benefits the city by activating neighborhoods and attracting residents who spend money in the city’s commercial districts.
Those wishing for more information or to comment are encouraged to view the Commission Packet that will be posted on Friday morning at www.shorelinecity.com and the city’s Facebook page. You may also view the meeting on zoom on the City’s Facebook page on November 24, 2020 at 5:30 pm. An opportunity to provide comment will be made available at the meeting.
