EAST JORDAN AREA HOUSING SOLUTIONS

The East Jordan Chamber of Commerce, the City of East Jordan and the East Jordan Public Schools have taken the lead in creating more housing opportunities in and around East Jordan. In partnership with other stakeholders in the community they have been building local awareness of the need for better housing solutions. This group recognizes the need to provide safe and efficient homes that meet the budget of a young family and local workers.

In 2019 with the help of Jane MacKenzie of Northern Homes Community Development Corporation the community reviewed the housing needs in the Central Neighborhood. This study included reviewing housing conditions, neighborhood demographics, and housing issues. A report of those findings can be viewed here.

In 2020, efforts will focus on continually educating the public on the various tools to create housing solutions as well as review of potential projects to both rehabilitate and create new homes. When meetings begin again in 2020 we will post them here. Please contact us if you’d like to be part of this effort.
