On August 7, 2001 (66 FR 41432), HUD published a Notice Inviting Applications for Designation of Forty Renewal Communities. The Notice, in section III.C.3.d.ii. at 66 FR 41437, includes arson in the list of offenses that must be included when determining the Local Crime Index (LCI) in a nominated area for purposes of comparing the LCI to the FBI's Crime Index (CI).
Although the offense of arson is included as part of the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system, it is not included in the Crime Index determination because the reporting for arson is not as consistent as for other offenses. The reference to arson in the Notice is, therefore, being removed. In addition, a correction making conforming changes to the July 9, 2001 (66 FR 35850) interim rule for Designation of Renewal Communities is published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.
Accordingly, FR Doc. 01-19652, Notice Inviting Applications: Designation of Forty Renewal Communities, (FR-4663-N-02), published in the Federal Register on August 7, 2001 (66 FR 41432), is corrected as follows:
On page 41437, second column, the last complete sentence of section III.C.3.d.ii. is revised to read as follows: “The offenses used in determining the CI, and which therefore must be used in determining the LCI, are the violent crimes of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, and the property crimes of burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft.”Start Signature
