  • Giving an update on the progress of the Affordable Housing Strategy Update, and highlights of the Housing Needs Assessment

    • very limited options in the market for moderate and low-income households (both ownership and rental)

    • new rental housing development has been stagnant โ€“ only 350 units in the past 20 years

    • rental rates are rising rapidly with many options exceeding $2000/mo

    • supply of ownership housing isn't meeting demand, especially for low and moderate-income households

    • lack of affordability in ownership market is driving people to the rental market, increasing demand on an already constrained rental market โ€“ options that might have been available to moderate renter incomes are no longer available

    • more than 90% of housing completions since 1990 have been ownership tenure

    • average pricing for all housing types, including townhouses and condos, far exceeds the affordability thresholds for moderate income households
