Housing Production Strategy

The Housing Production Strategy project will create a plan to address Ashland’s unmet housing needs with a focus on equity and public input. At the end of this year long planning effort, the final Housing Production Strategy report will identify a set of specific actions the city will undertake over an 8-year period to promote the development needed housing. Such actions may include land use ordinance amendments, zoning changes, financial incentives, and other actions within the City’s purview.

Ashland’s Housing Production Strategy is the third step in a four step process to support a variety of housing options.
  • Step 1: Buildable Lands Inventory, an inventory of the amount of vacant and partially vacant land within the City and Urban Growth Boundary that can accommodate new housing development. Completed December 2019 
  • Step 2: Housing Capacity Analysis, a report examining projected  housing needs over the next 20 years in consideration of household demographics, housing costs, and expected population growth. Completed May 2021.  This document was informed by citizen  responses to an online open house and survey, and the public comments received can be found here:  Summary of Online HCA Survey (4/1-15/2021)
  • Step 3: Housing Production Strategy, beginning spring 2022 
  • Step 4: Adoption and Implementation of the identified strategies, expected beginning in 2023
