FRANKFORT AREA HOUSING ADVISORY COUNCIL

The Frankfort Area Housing Advisory Council was established by the Frankfort City Council in 2018 to gather information and address issues related to housing in the City. A short, informal survey distributed in the Frankfort area in 2018 underscored residents’ difficulty in finding affordable housing, as well as related issues like short-term rentals and economic challenges facing employers throughout the area. Informed by survey results and local initiatives, the Frankfort Area Housing Advisory Council is now working with a range of government and local employers, State partners, and other stakeholders to identify and address the potential impacts on housing resulting from infrastructure, zoning, tax incentives, financing, and other issues. In addition, the group has emphasized the need for relevant, updated data to aid in decision-making, and to build relationships between the City and legislators or other policy makers to advocate for locally-driven and sustainable housing solutions.
