Survey to gauge Hamilton County's emerging housing needs

The Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) has contracted with Portland-based Western Economic Services to conduct an assessment of affordable housing in Hamilton County.

As part of the assessment, a 2012 Hamilton County Housing Needs Survey has been posted to gauge the views and opinions of residents and other interested parties on the county's emerging housing needs.

Feedback is being sought on housing production for multiple income levels – both owner-occupied and rental, ways to promote additional housing development, services that could be provided to promote better housing stock, perceived barriers to the development or preservation of housing, infrastructure components that affect housing production, and the importance of nearby amenities.

The survey takes approximately ten minutes to complete.
