  • Assistance to property owners, developers, and others in the application of zoning and subdivision regulations
  • Review of project plans for compliance with zoning and subdivision regulations
  • Support of the Planning Commission and the Board of Zoning Appeals.

 Grant Administration Grant administration activities include the on-going implementation of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program which has provided federal funds for a variety of housing and public facility improvements and codes enforcement within the CDBG target area consisting of census-designated low- and moderate-income areas in the City of Cleveland.

This activity has also included administration of other funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs providing affordable housing and emergency shelter, assistance with other housing-related programs, and assistance in the implementation of programs funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation such as safe routes to school (constructed sidewalks near elementary schools) and transportation enhancements (construction of Greenway and Cleveland railroad depot renovation).
