One Valley, One Community
Regional Housing Survey findings released
Our Valley Our Future has released a report containing the findings of its 2022 Regional Housing Survey. The survey was completed by more than 1,500 residents in late May and early June. Please click here for the report.
The 29-question survey was crafted to gain greater insight into residents’ perceptions of housing market issues and their comfort level with potential solutions. The information derived from this survey will provide decision-makers, community leaders and the overall community with another lens through which to view the issue and to collaborate.
The survey, along with a June 1 Regional Housing Summit, are steps in OVOF’s ‘Regional Housing Approach’ initiative to advance solutions that meet the demand for more diverse, affordable and available housing in the region. The initiative’s lead and supporting partners include: Chelan-Douglas Housing Solutions Group, Chelan County, Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce, Housing Authority of Chelan County and the City of Wenatchee, City of Leavenworth, City of Wenatchee, City of East Wenatchee, Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council, Common Ground Housing Trust, Upper Valley MEND, and the Chelan Valley Housing Trust.
Different communities, groups and interests coming together around a common vision.
In addition to helping residents craft the community Action Plan, Our Valley Our Future convenes and facilitates meetings when needed, gathers data to assist lead partners, community leaders and residents in decision-making, and communicates successes.
“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”
