The City of Burlington is looking for feedback about housing and has laid out the way local residents can have their say.

The Housing Needs and Opportunities Report gives a full picture of Burlington’s housing needs and opportunities. The report covers the technical background work and feedback from the second Housing Strategy survey, Housing Strategy Working Group, Housing Strategy Steering Committee as well as city and regional staff.

The report also identifies five themes that form the pillars for the development of the city’s Housing Strategy.

City staff will share the findings of the Housing Needs and Opportunities Report and provide an update on the Housing Strategy at a virtual open house on Monday, Nov. 29, from 7 to 9 p.m. on Zoom. Stakeholders are encouraged to join the discussion, ask questions, share feedback and learn more about the Housing Strategy project.

On Tuesday, Dec. 7, staff will present the Housing Needs and Opportunities Report at the Community Planning, Regulation and Mobility Committee Meeting.

“What residents and stakeholders have shared with us so far on housing in our community is invaluable. We’ve been able to take these insights and incorporate them into the Housing Needs and Opportunities Report,” said Mark Simeoni, the city’s director of Community Planning.

“The open house will be a great opportunity to learn more about the Housing Strategy project, review the report, share your thoughts and keep the conversation going.”

The public can see the staff report on the Housing Needs and Opportunities Report online starting Nov. 26.

The report summarizes the work done to date on the Housing Strategy, including key findings, preliminary recommendations and next steps.

Anyone who would like to speak to the Housing Needs and Opportunities Report should sign up to delegate before Dec. 6 at noon.
