News Release
Housing Options Study and Action Plan advisory group to hold second meeting on Feb. 23 - 02/18/21

Consultant will present information on housing supply, demand and needs

Vancouver, Wash. – The Housing Options Study and Action Plan project’s purpose is to identify housing challenges within the unincorporated Vancouver Urban Growth Area and opportunities to encourage development of housing that is affordable to a variety of household incomes through the removal of regulatory barriers and/or implementation of other strategies.

At their upcoming meeting, the Project Advisory Group (PAG) will hear from the consultant team regarding the housing data collection, inventory, and analysis work to date. The presentation will summarize the information collected and provide an analysis of housing supply, demand, needs, and preferences throughout the unincorporated Vancouver Urban Growth Area to provide context for evaluating potential strategies.

The group’s second meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 3 p.m. via Zoom. The meeting is open to the public.

For information on how to join and participate in the meeting, please visit https://clark.wa.gov/community-planning/housing-project-advisory-group.

The Clark County Council and County Manager have appointed a volunteer PAG to provide input throughout the Housing Options Study and Action Plan project. The group represents a broad spectrum of interests including those most vulnerable to rising housing costs and displacement, people working in the housing industry, and parties responsible for housing-related regulations.

The group will utilize a consensus-based approach to creatively and collaboratively problem-solve issues regarding barriers in providing additional housing types in the unincorporated Vancouver Urban Growth Area and to develop recommendations that will become part of the Housing Options Study and Action Plan. The recommendations will be reviewed and considered by the public, the Clark County Planning Commission and County Council.
