City of Edmond begins housing assessment process with survey

Gathering important information and vital input that will help identify challenges and opportunities is the goal when the City of Edmond launches an online survey Jan. 17 as part of its housing assessment project.

The housing assessment is an 8-month-long effort to study Edmond’s housing opportunities and create policies and strategies that will help advance the community’s housing goals. It will explore future supply and demand, identify gaps and barriers to meeting demand, and develop an action-based strategy to address those identified gaps. Those tools will help identify pathways to attainable housing for existing and future households of all types, ages, and income levels.

The first in a series of public outreach efforts for the project is an online survey that will be available Jan. 17 through Feb. 13 at EdmondOK.gov/HousingAssessment. The survey is looking for answers to questions like:  

  • What do you see as Edmond’s top housing challenges?
  • What questions do you want to see this study answer?
  • What types of housing are in greatest demand in Edmond?
  • What are the barriers to meeting this demand? 

“In the past decade we have seen demographics changing rapidly in the City of Edmond,” said Randy Entz, Director of Planning and Zoning for the City of Edmond. “Because of this, the City committed to assessing our housing needs to analyze the types of housing products that are in demand and to identify gaps. This online survey is the first opportunity for the public to tell us what they think are Edmond’s top housing challenges and priorities. We are hoping for a robust response and will have many more opportunities for public input throughout the process in 2023.”
