Ensuring housing availability at all price points.

Housing Next

Housing Next is an initiative focused on supporting housing solutions for all income levels in our community. More than 36% of Ottawa County families are struggling to make ends meet. For many of these families, this is due to a severe lack of housing choice. The choices that are available have not kept up with modern demands. We must be thinking about the next era of housing supply and community design that permits a high quality of life in a financially sustainable pattern of living.

 

The New Localism

“The multi-sectoral networks that work together to solve problems as well as the institutional vehicles they invent to get things done.”
