CITY SEEKS PUBLICíS INPUT ON AFFORDABLE HOUSING
The Department of Planning and Permittingís Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Program and the Mayorís Office of Housing are seeking the publicís input in developing an Affordable Housing Strategy for Oahu.
The two city agencies are conducting an online survey that asks residents to share their views on local housing needs. The survey is in response to the City Councilís desire to better address the islandís diverse housing needs, and the survey is one way that Oahu residents can help document their concerns, as well as solutions, relating to affordable housing.
The Affordable Housing Strategy will prioritize city resources in the construction and maintenance of affordable housing. The plan also will be used to revise land use regulations, financial policies, and affordable housing programs. The cityís partners in this effort include the state, housing advocates, and developers.
