Housing is a key component in supporting the growth of the region’s economy. Access to adequate and reliable housing for the North Country’s workforce has been a long-standing issue that continues to be a challenge across the region. To address this, the LCLGRPB, in partnership with Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton Counties, has launched Building Balanced Communities for the North Country, a comprehensive housing study and strategy.
This project will evaluate the current state of the area’s housing and identify the critical housing needs. Innovative community-led solutions and strategies will then be targeted to address the housing challenges in our region through data-driven analysis and community outreach and engagement.
Look for an informational open house in your area this fall!
