Call for American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding Proposals
The Assembly has issued a call for proposals for the second round of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. The Municipality expects about $50 million to be transferred from the federal government in late May. Applications can be filed by nonprofits, businesses, and associations, as well as Tribal and education entities. The Assembly recognizes that this one-time funding through the American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA) must be wisely spent to allow it to do as much good in our community as possible. To achieve this goal, the Assembly envisions funding projects which focus on economic resilience, will increase our competitiveness as a destination city, and make all parts of our city vibrant and welcoming. The deadline to apply is 5pm on Friday, May 20, 2022. Learn more​ about past federal relief fund distributions.

Accessory Dwelling Units
The Assembly is currently working on a plan with the Administration to create a property tax exemption for certain Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). ADUs are another name for small, self-contained building sharing a lot with a larger home. A draft ordinance was brought forward at the February 15 Assembly Meeting, but it was decided that a little more work was needed before passage. ​The item was postponed indefinitely at the April 26 meeting to allow the Administration to come forward with a revised version after working through issues with state law.
