VANCOUVER – The Housing Options Study and Action Plan project’s eighth meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tue., Oct. 26 via Zoom. The meeting is open to the public and will be recorded.
The Project Advisory Group’s (PAG) 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.
For information on how to join and participate in the meeting, visit https://clark.wa.gov/community-planning/housing-project-advisory-group.
The group will develop their draft recommendations for the Housing Action Plan. Once drafted, the recommendations will be made available to the public for review and feedback, along with opportunities to attend community engagement events that will be scheduled later this fall and early winter.
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. The group also will 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.
