As part of the annual planning process for the City's Housing Division, we are collecting input from residents on community needs within Largo's neighborhoods. 

Federal and state funding managed by the Housing Division can be used for home improvements, helping people buy their first home, building affordable housing, sidewalk and infrastructure improvements, and services related to fair housing, homebuyer education, ending homelessness and more.

What types of projects/programs do you think are most important for use of these funds?

Are there certain neighborhoods that have a higher need for these types of investments?

If so, please tell us which neighborhoods.

The Housing Division will hold its Pre-Planning Public Hearing at the Community Development Advisory Board meeting on Monday, December 11, 2017 at 6:00 PM at Largo City Hall (201 Highland Avenue, Largo).  The public is invited to attend and provide input at the meeting.  Comments are welcome on this Discussion Board as well or you can email:

A portion of the Housing Division's annual budget can be allocated toward funding eligible community services.  Such services can include: services to aid elderly or disabled residents, fair housing services, homebuyer counseling and education, mental health services, youth services and more.

What types of services are needed most in the community?

Do you feel there is currently access to these services in Largo?  If not, how could accessibility to services be improved (ex. offer services in Largo locations, mobile services, online access, etc.)
