Why should the Comprehensive Plan address housing?

The availability of decent and affordable housing, for people of all income levels, is a fundamental requirement of a thriving community. Assessing a community’s housing stock in a comprehensive plan ensures that future housing needs are addressed before issues of supply, quality and cost become problematic. The availability of a wide diversity of housing types contributes to a community’s vibrancy and economic success. Read more in the Housing section of the working draft of the Comprehensive Plan, which begins on page 93.
