The Consolidated Plan
Davis County is responsible for the development, administration, and implementation of this Five-Year Consolidated Plan (Plan) in accordance with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program guidelines. The CDBG program is used for the benefit of low and moderate income households. The Plan assesses the needs of Davis County in areas such as: housing, economic development, job creation, senior citizen and youth programs, lead-based paint hazards, ADA requirements, public utilities, curb, gutter, sidewalks, and streets. The Plan is also used to address the needs of affordable housing as a method of improving low and moderate income areas of the County, and to provide home ownership opportunities for low and moderate income families. This plan covers the five-year period from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2016. This Plan only addresses CDBG funding, as this is the only entitlement funding Davis County receives from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Davis County's designation as an entitlement community brings responsibility to support the goals and objectives for participating municipalities. The eleven municipalities that form the Urban County include Bountiful, West Bountiful, North Salt Lake, Woods Cross, Centerville, Farmington, Kaysville, Syracuse, West Point, Clinton and Sunset along with the unincorporated areas of the County. Clearfield and Layton are entitlement communities and participate in the CDBG program on their own, while Fruit Heights and South Weber chose not to participate in the Davis Urban County program. Each of these jurisdictions has a unique personality and ambience that is extremely important to the people who live there. Community decisions are not made lightly and the impact of any decision is weighed with the good of the community in mind.
