7.16.12 - The Huntsville Housing Authority Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution today to seek guidance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on how to comply with federal fair housing laws and regulations, and a new Alabama law which was recently passed by the State Legislature.
The implementation of Senate Bill 205 as a new law will require the Huntsville Housing Authority (HHA) to place a newspaper ad for three weeks prior to entering a binding agreement to purchase property. In an effort to show its continued diligence in transparency, HHA took the initiative to place its first advertisement before the law officially goes into effect on August 1, 2012. As a result, public opposition led a property owner to withdraw his property from the market.
All public housing agencies are federally mandated by HUD to deconcentrate poverty. HHA Board Chairman Phillip Redrick told reporters after today’s meeting that the agency wants direction on how it should proceed and to ensure the new law does not impede its ability to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing.
Additionally, the new law restricts HHA’s use of Eminent Domain. Redrick told reporters that HHA has never attempted to use its powers of Eminent Domain. He says it has no plans to utilize those powers.
