The Future of Housing for All

Updated 02/01/2023

Home is where all of our stories begin and each story is as unique as the person telling it.

Maybe you’re a third-generation Spokanite and you want to ensure that future generations will be able to live near family. Perhaps you’re a new resident who came to enjoy the city’s “near nature, near perfect” city amenities and you want to someday own a home here. Or maybe you’re a recent graduate looking for a home near a transit line, so you can enjoy the nightlife our downtown offers.

The Building Opportunity for Housing team wants to hear about your housing story! Whatever stage of your housing journey you’re living, we want to hear from you. Put voice to your experience as a renter, as a homeowner, or a person experiencing homelessness. This survey is meant to help staff collect diverse ideas and opinions about housing so the City can update the vision for housing contained in the Comprehensive Plan, leading to permanent changes to City plans and policies and allowing more housing types in neighborhoods citywide.

We’re seeking out residents and those who wish they could be homeowners to be included in our outreach efforts. Put a voice on your housing story, your concerns, hopes, and dreams for the future of housing choice! Take this 10-minute survey (sharing your contact information is optional!) All responses will be kept confidential.
