Statement of Services: The Community Development staff administers the City of Roseville Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. CDBG provides funding for a variety of community programs with the goal of improving the quality of life for moderate income and low income residents. CDBG funding supports housing rehabilitation, code enforcement/rodent control, eligible public improvement projects, community services, services for senior citizens, and mobility assistance for handicapped persons. The City of Roseville Community Development staff works with qualified non-profit organizations, eligible service providers and government agencies to accomplish the goals of the CDBG Program. The Community Development Department administers approximately $800 thousand in CDBG funds annually.
Special Services: For residents 60 years or older who qualify by income, the Community Development Department provides snow shoveling and grass cutting (cost based on income). Preregistration is required for both services. Register for grass cutting from February 1st through March 15th. Register for snow shoveling from September 1st through October 15th. To register for these services please contact the Senior Chores Program directly at 586-469-5228.
Citizen Participation: Annually, the Mayor and City Council appoint thirteen community volunteers to the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). These volunteers meet with the Community Development staff several times a year to provide input to the CDBG Program; to review home improvement loan applications that require exceptions to the guidelines, to appear at public hearings; and to assist in the development of the annual program budget.
