Community Development

Resources and Documents

Over the last number of years, the City leadership has convened taskforces and study groups to better understand the City’s housing challenges and to identify potential solutions. From those and other processes, the City has produced a number of relevant reports and studies that document housing needs, the scope of the City’s homelessness problem and findings and recommendations that will also be used to inform this process.
