Sherwood2040 Housing Snapshot: Sharing Your Story

Housing Snapshot: Sharing Your Story   



Thank you for taking time to share your housing experience in the Sherwood community.  The purpose of collecting these stories is to understand the experiences of community members finding housing based on needs, desires and resources. This information will help us understand our local housing challenges and opportunities in relation to the development of our City’s Comprehensive Plan update.

Changes in demographics and income for Sherwood and regional residents, as well as the passage of House Bill 2001, will require accommodating a wider range of housing types over the next 20 years. Sherwood recently completed a Housing Needs Analysis (HNA) for the 2019-2039 period. The HNA provides Sherwood with a factual basis to support future planning efforts related to housing, such as planning for Sherwood West, and informs the update of the City’s Comprehensive Plan policies.

This effort acknowledges that while data informed decision-making is crucial, housing begins and ends with people. Your story is important! Thank you for sharing. Please submit all stories by August 7th, 2020.
