Housing is a large consumer of land in our comunities and is a critical factor as to whether or not people locate within certain areas. It is essential that municipalities consider whether or not their current housing stock meets the needs of current residents, as well as the needs of residents of the future. Housing Needs Assessments can assist with this.
