Council Communication

Title: Presentation of the City of Ashland Affordable Housing Action Plan
Dept: Department of Community Development Planning Division
Date: December 3, 2002
Submitted By: John McLaughlin, Director of Community Development
Reviewed By:
Brian Almquist, Interim City Administrator

Synopsis: The City contracted for a housing needs analysis, which was completed by ECONorthwest in May, 2002. Following that effort, the City contracted with Cogan Owen Cogan and Sextant Consultants for the preparation of an Affordable Housing Action Plan which would outline the next steps for the community in addressing the needs for housing for a broad range of income levels.

Kurt Webring of Sextant Consultants will be presenting the plan to the City Council at the meeting.

Recommendation: Staff recommends that Council accept the Affordable Housing Action Plan as a document to support and direct the efforts of the Housing Commission and soon to be hired temporary Housing Program Coordinator.
Fiscal Impact: The City Council allocated funds to hire a Housing Program Coordinator for a period of six months. That position is currently being advertised and is expected to be filled at the beginning of the year. The Action plan also identifies several other efforts that the City could undertake to address housing that would involve additional funding. The extent of the fiscal impact will be dependent upon future City Council action.
Background: The City of Ashland Affordable Housing Action Plan is attached.
