Thank you to everyone who participated in the online survey. We received over 500 responses from a variety of residents and stakeholders. Your feedback is an important step in the development of the final Affordable Housing Coordinated Action Plan. To identify Lincoln’s housing needs, opportunities, and strategies the survey results and feedback from the listening sessions will be compared to and combined with community data. Over the next few months this information will be summarized and included in the final report, which will be available on the project website in early 2020.
The project team held 24 listening sessions on September 25, 26 and October 14, 15 with a variety of groups ranging from students to housing providers. An additional two meetings are scheduled in the coming weeks. The opinions and perceptions shared during these listening sessions, in addition to community data, will help identify Lincoln’s housing needs, opportunities, and strategies in the final report.
In July the project team met with City staff to kick off the process to develop a coordinated action plan for affordable housing in Lincoln. A resource committee was formed which will meet monthly to review progress and provide direction to the project team as they research, interview, and develop the final action plan. The team is preparing for stakeholder group interviews and launching the workforce housing survey which will occur later this month.
