Workforce Housing Framework

In November 2022, Town Council adopted the Workforce Housing Framework that authorizes the Town to take the necessary steps to develop, implement and carry out strategies and tactics identified within the Framework document.

The Workforce Housing Framework is supported by four foundational pillars, with each having specific goals, strategies and critical first steps necessary to accomplish the mission of the framework.

  • Community - The goal of this pillar is to engage, collaborate, and inform the community on housing challenges, and to identify community-led housing programs and solutions. Strategies include developing partnerships and relationships with community organizations and establishing a housing action committee.
  • Planning - The goal of this pillar is to create a social, political, and economic environment that stimulates workforce housing through planning, policymaking and programming.
  • Management - The goal of this pillar is to establish a management program and policies to advance workforce housing opportunities. This includes adding dedicated Town staff for planning and coordination and exploring the creation of a professionally managed housing organization.
  • Revenue - The goal of this pillar is to provide a consistent, sustainable, and multi-sourced revenue model for funding workforce housing initiatives and partnerships. Through this goal, the Town commits to a funding plan that meets the needs of a multi-year workforce housing action plan.
