AMOS Housing Team 2019 Kick Off Meeting
Monday, January 7, 2019
6:30 – 8:00pm
St. Paul AME Church, 1201 Day Street, Des Moines
Thanks to the work of AMOS leaders in Des Moines, the Des Moines City leaders have agreed to include funding for housing in the spending resolution for the proposed 1 cent sales tax increase to be voted on in March. Funds will go toward improving rental housing code enforcement including a commitment to allocating funds toward hiring additional housing inspectors and addressing abandoned/dilapidate properties.
Anyone interested in housing issues in Des Moines is invited to attend the kick-off meeting of the AMOS Housing Team. During the meeting, we will split into three groups, one for each of the issue areas we identified at the November housing civic academy: dilapidated/abandoned homes, housing conditions, and increasing affordable housing options.
