The Roswell City Council during its meeting tonight is set approve accepting a grant that would allow the city to increase its stock of affordable housing to qualified residents.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. at Roswell City Hall.

The city is considering accepting the project year 2014 HOME Investment Partnership Program Grant in the amount of $93,871. The program would required the city to match $19,947.25.

Fifteen percent of the grant has to be spent by a certified Community Housing Development Organization, which would building the housing and act as the developer, owner and/or sponsor.

Council members will also consider a resolution in support of applying to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs for 2014 low-income housing tax credits that would be used towards the redevelopment of the Roswell Housing Authority's Veranda at Groveway project.

NO! NO! NO! NO! How about we FIX our 400 southbound exit ramp at Holcomb Bridge. You know, do things for the people who PAY TAXES and live here? Instead of giving others free places to live because you're going to take a kick-back on it. Also, how about we clear out the panhandling at Holcomb Bridge. Unreal, this City Council cares about nothing but fattening their pockets, whether it be with funds from the ILLEGAL cell tower or this crap. Give it a rest already people and do something that actually benefits those LIVING HERE~!

Driving 400 North every North Fulton suburb looks nice except for Roswell, our exit is a mess, it has panhandlers, and our politicians don't care one bit. They'd rather jam more CRAP downo ur throats we dont need or want.
