RESIDENTIAL ANTI-DISPLACEMENT AND RelocatioN ASSISTANCE PLAN CERTIFICATION
The County Of Albemarle will replace all occupied and vacant occupiable low/moderate‑income dwelling units demolished or converted to a use other than as low/moderate income dwelling unit as a direct result of activities assisted with funds provided under the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. All replacement housing will be provided within three (3) years of the commencement of the demolition or rehabilitation relating to conversion.
Before obligating or expending funds that will directly result in such demolition or conversion, the County Of Albemarle will make public and advise the state that it is undertaking such an activity and will submit to the state, in writing, information that identifies:
(1) A description of the proposed assisted activity;
(2) The general location on a map and approximate number of dwelling units by size (number of bedrooms) that will be demolished or converted to a use other than as low/moderate‑income dwelling units as a direct result of the assisted activity;
(3) A time schedule for the commencement and completion of the demolition or conversion;
(4) The general location on a map and approximate number of dwelling units by size (number of bedrooms) that will be provided as replacement dwelling units;
(5) The source of funding and a time schedule for the provision of replacement dwelling units;
(6) The basis for concluding that each replacement dwelling unit will remain a low/moderate‑income dwelling unit for at least 10 years from the date of initial occupancy; and
(7) Information demonstrating that any proposed replacement of dwelling units with smaller dwelling units is consistent with the housing needs of low‑ and moderate‑ income households in the jurisdiction.
The County Of Albemarle and/or the development owners will provide relocation assistance to each low/moderate – income household displaced by the demolition of housing or by the direct result of assisted activities. Such assistance shall be that provided under Section 104 (d) of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, or the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended.
The County Of Albemarle’s FY08 project includes the following activities:
Site development activities including grading, erosion control, construction of pavement, curbing, and sidewalks, and the installation of on-site water and sewer lines for the proposed Crozet Meadows development. In conjunction with the CDBG-funded site activities, the owner will rehab 28 existing rental units and construct an additional 38 units. During rehab, tenants may be temporarily relocated to other vacant units or to newly-constructed units. It is not anticipated that the CDBG-funded work or other proposed work will result in demolition.
The County Of Albemarle will work with the grant management staff, engineers, project area residents, and the Department of Housing and Community Development to insure that any changes in project activities do not cause any displacement from or conversion of occupiable structures.
In all cases, an occupiable structure will be defined as a dwelling that meets local building codes or a dwelling that can be rehabilitated to meet code for $25,000 or less.
