Housing Workgroup

By 2040, the GroWNC region will be home to over 630,000 people—nearly 40 percent more people than live in the area today. This translates to a need for almost 75,000 additional housing units dispersed throughout the five counties. With this growth comes a variety of challenges and opportunities. How can the region grow responsibly, in a manner that respects existing communities and the landscape, and provide opportunities for a range of options while improving affordability?

Existing plans, data, and studies were collected, analyzed, and synthesized into an Existing Conditions Report for each topic. Here is a link to the Housing Chapter if you’d like to read more. Workgroups were formed around each topic area to review existing conditions, identify issues and goals, and recommend strategies. To learn more about the background of this topic, read the Existing Conditions Report and review the workgroup’s meeting notes and related information on this page. The goals identified by all the workgroups are listed in the GroWNC Regional Plan on pages 29-37.
