The City of Piedmont will host a Town Hall on June 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to provide an opportunity for Piedmont residents to learn more about the Draft Housing Element. This Town Hall will provide an opportunity for community members to pose questions about the document. Following a short presentation addressing some of the issues, a panel will provide responses to questions submitted by attendees.
“We have received over 275 written comments from community members on the Draft Housing Element via email and the Piedmont Puzzle. And have heard from over 50 community members at the April 19th Housing Advisory Committee meeting and the May 12th Planning Commission meeting,” said Kevin Jackson, the City’s Director of Planning & Building. “Several of those comments included questions. We intend to provide answers to those questions and clarity on the purpose and scope of the Draft Housing Element at this Town Hall Q&A meeting.”
Residents can participate in the Zoom meeting or watch the meeting by tuning to KCOM TV, Comcast channel 27 or AT&T channel 99.
