Grand Valley Housing Needs Assessment Discussion
Staff began work in late December with Root Policy and Research, a Colorado consultancy with extensive experience in the housing field, on the Grand Valley Housing Needs Assessment. This presentation and report is the final step in the first phase of the project which included extensive data collection, a community-wide survey, a series of focus group meetings with key stakeholders, and individual stakeholders. Root Policy Research launched a community-wide housing needs survey on February 3rd which was open for responses until February 28th. The survey received strong community feedback. A series of meetings with stakeholders’ groups took place the week of February 15th. Information gathered through the survey and meetings with stakeholders and housing partners was used in conjunction with Census (2010), American Community Survey (ACS), DOLA, among other data sources to formulate the assessment report. The subsequent Phase 2 of the project is to develop a housing strategy for the City of Grand Junction which is to be completed in late summer 2021. Root Policy and Research will present the major findings of the attached Housing Needs Assessment.
