2019 Housing Affordability Analysis

The primary purpose of the Housing Affordability Report is to annually report on the implementation of and possible improvements to the housing element in the comprehensive plan. Most importantly, it is intended to be reflective of the community’s ability to meet “existing and forecasted housing demand,” provide “a range of housing choices that meet the needs of persons of all income levels” and to provide corrections if deficiencies are identified. Additionally, annual updates of the Housing Affordability Report must be posted no later than January 31. The report may also help housing developers quickly identify housing development opportunities within each community and help communities identify ways to expedite and reduce the costs of those developments.
