Public participation welcome for Regional Annual Action Plan

Every year the Six County Association of Governments (SCAOG) produces an Annual Action Plan as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Plan details the community development, housing needs and priorities of Juab, Millard, Piute, Sanpete, Sevier, and Wayne Counties. There is a special emphasis on serving the needs of the low and moderate income and special needs populations.

The purpose of the plan is to identify ways to implement HUD funded projects and activities that should take place in the immediate or near future. The planning process is undertaken with the assistance of towns, cities, counties and the public to identify, prioritize and quantify the cost of capital improvement needs in each jurisdiction. Throughout the plan creation process, communities are interviewed individually about their needs.

Six County also works with the regional public housing agencies and other service providers to identify gaps in affordable housing and for appropriate means to address those gaps. Public hearings are in conjunction with the regional governing body, or executive board, to solicit public involvement in the plan development process.

The following questions are considered in the development of the Annual Action Plan:

  1. What are the key priorities for housing and community development for each jurisdiction in the region, and the region as a whole?
  2. What opportunities exist for integration and coordination of federal, state and/or local programs?
  3. How can SCAOG and the Utah Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is administered through the Utah Division of Housing and Community Development, help foster better coordination?
  4. What data or other information would help us in developing and improving the housing and community development decision making process as it relates to rating and ranking of projects proposed for HUD funding?

Public participation in the planning process is encouraged for the upcoming 2020-2021 plan. The final plan will be published in March.

A short survey form is available to anyone interested in providing input on housing and community development needs in their community at www.sixcounty.com. You may also provide input or ask for a paper survey with the SCAOG Regional Planner, Zach Leavitt, at (435) 893-0737, via e-mail: zleavitt@sixcounty.com, or mail: 250 North Main St, P.O.

Planning Underway: Pre Disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Six County Association of Governments (SCAOG) is currently in the process of updating the region’s Pre Disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan. Adoption of a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved plan is required if a community or county would like to be eligible for certain federal funds for pre-disaster hazard mitigation projects and post-disaster recovery funding. Most jurisdictions in the region adopted the plan in 2015. During this update process, SCAOG staff will be working with local communities and county personnel from Juab, Millard, Piute, Sanpete, Sevier, and Wayne Counties. If you would like to be included in this important planning process or if you have any questions, please contact Zach Leavitt at (435)-893-0737 or zleavitt@sixcounty.com
