One of the goals for Delhi in the Joint Comprehensive Plan is to develop a varied selection of quality housing for people who live and work in Delhi. One of the implementation steps to address the needs is to conduct a housing market analysis. On Tuesday, Feb. 25, the members of the Delhi Town Council attended the Public Hearing for the Delhi Housing Study to give input on a housing needs assessment and a market analysis for the Village and Town of Delhi. Over 40 community members also attended to give their input.
The study will seek to address the following issues:
- What are the range of housing needs within the community for people of all stages of life and income levels
- What types of housing options and projects are economically feasible for the local market
- Potential locations within or near the Village to support such housing
The Village and Town of Delhi intend to use the results of this study to implement definitive housing development projects to meet the needs of residents, aid businesses with issues of worker recruitment/retention and improve community sustainability.
Those who were unable to attend the public hearing can still participate by taking the survey online at www.delhinyhousing.com. Your input is very important to the process.
