PUBLIC ACTION

TAKE ACTION

All housing solutions need public support in order to be successful. Local governments and legislators won’t take action unless they hear from citizens about why housing is needed, what solutions they support, and how to take action. Citizens can be a voice for housing solutions that will drive their representatives to act - by attending local government planning commission and elected board meetings, contacting their legislators,  and sharing their own stories about housing with campaign partners. 

 

ADVOCATE

Interested citizens can act as advocates at the local level and beyond. Click here for information on how to sign up for updates, share housing stories, and connect with local governments and groups .

 

LEARN MORE

Understanding housing needs and solutions is an important first step in moving the region forward. You can get informed by attending local meetings and presentation, or browsing the studies, plans and other documents available on this website . Click here for more resources or fill out the form below to sign up for information on presentations and meetings.

MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY HOUSING READY

Is your community ready for development? Or does it need to update its zoning ordinance before builders can provide the type of housing your community needs? Citizens can encourage their communities to become "Housing Ready" by completing the Housing Ready Checklist. More information is available here.
