TITLE:
Update regarding Flagstaff's 10 Year Housing Plan
DESIRED OUTCOME:
Informational only. 
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
Affordable, accessible, and decent housing is of critical importance to a community’s health and viability. On December 1, 2020, the City Council declared a Housing Emergency in Flagstaff, prioritizing affordable housing within City operations to create safe, decent, and affordable housing opportunities for all community members. The Housing Plan will define the housing emergency in Flagstaff and will provide goals and strategies to reduce it. As the City implements the Flagstaff 10 Year Housing Plan, the objective is to substantially increase the number of available and affordable housing options for all Flagstaff residents at all income levels.
 
This update to City Council includes the work that has gone into creating the 10 Year Housing Plan thus far, to recognize the Informal Working Group’s dedication and involvement, to share the overarching draft goals created by the Informal Working Groups, and to review the 10 Year Housing Plan’s timeline moving forward.
