The city of Winston-Salem is collecting feedback on a survey until Mar. 18, to create priorities for federal funding allocated to address homelessness and affordable housing.

City officials will also host a series of community meetings to discuss various community priorities in person. There will be one-hour sessions held for each identified community priority.

  • Mar. 15 – 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Central Library, 660 W. Fifth St.

The survey asks participants to rank the following goals and provide feedback:

  1. Neighborhood revitalization and housing conservation: housing code enforcement, assistance to neighborhoods, owner-occupied housing rehabilitation programs (physical improvements to neighborhoods, vacant lots and units for in-fill redevelopment.
  2. Housing production and neighborhood development: assistance to homebuyers, assistance to developers, redevelopment; multi-family rental production; reduce barriers to affordable housing, energy efficiency
  3. Expanding economic opportunities: entrepreneurial development, neighborhood commercial and downtown revitalization
