The County of Riverside Economic Development Agency (EDA), under the direction of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has initiated its 5-year (2019/2024) “Consolidated Plan” planning process.  An integral component of the Consolidated Plan process is the “Needs Assessment Resident Survey” process.  This Resident Needs Assessment Survey is used to obtain input from County (Wildomar) residents and other interested persons regarding affordable housing, community development, economic development, and other needs deemed important by the community.  The Consolidated Plan helps prioritize the County’s to utilization of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and HOME Investment Partnership Act (HOME) funds within the County, and the City of Wildomar.

The City of Wildomar is a Cooperating City under the Riverside County’s CDBG Program and will be participating in the Needs Assessment Resident Survey process.  The City encourages any Wildomar resident to complete the survey so that our community is well represented.  There will be an approximate 30-day time period to complete the survey starting on Thursday, September 20 and concluding on Monday, October 22, 2018.  There are two (2) ways to complete the survey.  1) you may complete a paper copy of the survey which can be obtained by visiting City Hall (Monday – Thursday, 8 am - 5 pm) and the Mission Trail Library.  All completed paper copies must be returned to Matthew Bassi, Planning Director prior to the October 22nd deadline.  Second, you may complete the survey online (most easiest).  The survey can be easily accessed by clicking the link below which will take you directly to the Riverside County Consolidated Plan Needs Assessment Resident Survey webpage. The survey form can be completed anytime 24/7 through the October 22nd deadline. 

The Planning Department will be presenting a Consolidated Plan briefing report to the City Council at its meeting scheduled for September 19 and October 14, 2018.  If you have not completed a paper copy or the online survey, you may attend this Council meeting and share your thoughts.  The City Council will have a final Consolidated Plan briefing report presented to them at their November 14, 2018 meeting at which time residents will have one final opportunity to participate in the Needs Assessment Resident Survey.  All surveys will be forwarded to the Riverside County Economic Development Agency at the conclusion of the process.

Should you need assistance or have questions regarding the survey, please contact Matthew Bassi, Planning Director at (951) 677-7751, Ext. 213, or by email at
