Help the City Prioritize Spending by Providing Input on the Five-Year Consolidated Plan
The five-year consolidated plan is a regional effort to solicit input from the community in the form of public hearings, interviews with stakeholders and a community survey. Data acquired from public input is used to help the City assess its affordable housing and community development needs and serve to guide the City’s Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investments Partnership Program and Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) investments for the next five years.
Please spend a few minutes giving your opinion at The survey will be available until March 1, 2015.

Brownsville Playful City USA Map of Play

Playful City USA is a national recognition program that honors cities and towns across the country for taking bold steps that make it easy for all kids to get the balanced and active play they need to thrive. These communities are recognized for their efforts to create more playable, family-friendly cities. Playful City USA communities are making play part of the solution that moves the needle on city-wide challenges and, in turn, developing a competitive advantage that attracts and retains businesses and residents.
The Map of Play is a playground finder, a way to gather data on where playgrounds exist, the condition of existing playgrounds and where playgrounds are needed so that we all can participate in improving the state of play in our own communities. Take a look at Brownsville’s Map of Play.
