Housing Needs Assessment and Incentives Implementation


The City of Brighton has been awarded grant funding through the State of Colorado's Department of Local Affairs to develop a housing needs assessment and incentives strategy plan, including the implementation of land use/zoning code and policy updates to incentivize and/or reduce barriers to affordable housing development in Brighton.

Current Step:

Gruen Gruen + Associates, a consultant working with the City in partnership with the Brighton Housing Authority, has designed a housing survey to obtain information and perspective about the current housing patterns, costs, preferences, and needs of Brighton residents.

The survey will be used to:

• Collect timely data about current housing characteristics and costs;

• Find out about housing satisfaction levels;

• Identify factors most important to residents’ housing needs;

• Find out about affordable housing challenges;

• Investigate potential support for affordable housing policies; and

• Estimate future housing demand in Brighton.

All survey responses will remain completely anonymous. Complete the survey electronically by visiting the web link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/BrightonHousingSurvey

La encuesta de vivienda está disponible en español aquí: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Encuesta_de_Vivienda_en_Brighton

Next Step:

City staff will bring forward information gathered by the consultant to the City Council at a future Study Session meeting. Further discussion and analysis of recommendations will follow with the end result ideally being the implementation of code and policy updates.

We thank you for your interest and encourage you to participate in the above-linked survey.
