The Town of Selma has recently purchased a gym building built in 1936 by the people of Selma during The Great Depression.  Our goal now is to raise $300,000 to restore the building so it can be rented for family reunions, meetings, parties, weddings, etc., as well as being used by the town for events associated with  special celebrations. Contributions from $100 and up in money, material, and/or labor will be recognized with plaques mounted inside the building. Citizens will also be able to purchase an engraved brick for $100 to be placed in the outdoor courtyard, thereby making their own mark on history.

Town of Selma Fair Housing Survey 

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 3:39:00 PM

Click Here: Town of Selma Fair Housing Survey

The Town of Selma has received a Community Development Block Grant Infrastructure funding from the NC Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Water Infrastructure (DEQ-DWI) to make improvements within the Town. To fulfill a portion of conditions for the project, the town adopted a fair housing plan and each quarter takes action to affirmatively further fair housing.

Due to federal regulatory changes in 2014, funding recipients are required to develop an Assessment of Fair Housing that includes data collection from the census and other data bases, local knowledge of surrounding housing impediments and information from citizens participation.  Therefore, the Town is required to present enhanced community participation, outreach efforts and identification of local contributing factors to impediments of fair housing choice.

The Federal Fair Housing Act prohibits the denial of housing to a person based on the person's membership in one or more of the classes under the Act. The protected classes are Race, Color, Religion, National Origin, Sex, Famillial Status and Disability. In addition, it is illegal to coerce, intimidate, threaten or interfere with a person seeking to exercise rights under the Fair Housing Act.

As a result, the survey link above has been prepared to see how familiar the Town is with the Fair Housing Law of 1968, as amended, through the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.  Please complete the survey and leave the results.  The Wooten Company will be compiling the returned information to satisfy the request from DWI for the updated Assessment of Fair Housing.

If you desire, an advisory session may be scheduled between Community Development Representatives, yourself and others to further explain the program or answer any questions you may have.  Additionally, the Fair Housing Bill ratified by the North Carolina Assembly is available (in English and Spanish) at the the Selma Town Hall, 114 N. Raiford Street, NC  27576-2833, phone number 919-965-9841; TDD: 1-800-735-2962, to be viewed upon request.  This information is available in Spanish or any other language upon request.  

Esta información está disponible en español o en cualquier otro idioma bajo petición. Por favor, póngase en contacto Selma Town Hall, al 919-965-9841.

The Town of Selma is grateful for the cooperation from its citizens to comply with DEQ-DWI requirements. We look forward to receiving your completed surveys.

Seasonal Leaf Collection 

Tuesday, November 1, 2016 4:25:00 PM

Leaf trucks will begin leaf collection activities soon. The leaf trucks do not collect limbs or other yard waste. Leaves and limbs must be in separate piles for collection. Do not place leaves or yard waste in gutters or waterways as this leads to blocked storm-water drainage and incurs increased maintenance costs to the Town. Leaves mixed with trash will be collected by other means and a $25 fee assessed to the property owner. Any waste set out for collection that does not comply with the Town’s solid waste policies are subject to special collection fees. For more information about waste collection in the Town of Selma, please visit the Public Works Department section at www.selma-nc.com.
