Applications Now Being Accepted for Housing Authority and Babcock Street Advisory Boards
The City of Melbourne is currently recruiting interested citizens to serve on two key advisory boards: Babcock Street Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Committee and the Melbourne Housing Authority.
- The Babcock Street Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory (CRA) Committee advises City Council by preparing and recommending plans or changes to redevelopment projects within the Babcock Street CRA corridor. Applicants must be registered voters who live in the City of Melbourne or are engaged in business in the Babcock Street CRA. The committee meets on the fourth Wednesday every other month at 8 a.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber.
- The Melbourne Housing Authority is responsible for the acquisition, lease, construction, reconstruction, improvements and operations of federally funded housing projects within the City. Applicants must be registered to vote and live within the City of Melbourne. The board meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 9:15 a.m. in the South Area Housing Administrative Office at 1401 Guava Avenue.
Volunteer board members provide vital input to the Melbourne City Council on important local issues and have the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to their community.
