The Housing Commission will assess community housing needs, perform data-gathering and analysis, and establish city-wide goals for housing. It will make recommendations for housing policy, and identify the tools to incentivize the City’s housing goals. It will also assist the City leadership staff by providing guidance regarding relevant loan or other incentive programs. The Housing Commission may directly advise the City Council regarding operational decisions such as loan award recommendations. The Commission will support the Planning Commission by bringing community opinions, attitudes and needs to the decision-making process, while being advocates to the wider community.
