RDG's Amy Haase speaks with Greater Layfayette Magazine about the detailed findings of RDG's housing study.

For its Fall 2023 issue, the Greater Lafayette Magazine spoke with several partners, including RDG Planning & Design Principal Amy Haase, AICP, to discuss the future of housing for Lafayette, Indiana.

The Greater Lafayette region has seen a nearly three percent increase over the past decade, outpacing Indiana's two-percent growth. The basic need for housing has become a core issue for city and county elected officials. 

Haase shares that since 2008, there’s been minimal new home production. RDG's housing study of the area notes that 42 percent of the region's housing is at least 50 years old. The lack of new housing could be correlated with a shortage of demand, limiting existing supply and leading to an increased burden on housing costs.
