Town of Burlington
Housing Needs Assessment
About the Project
The Town of Burlington, led by the Housing Partnership Committee, worked with MAPC to prepare a housing needs assessment.
The assessment evaluated and increased community understanding of housing needs and local housing issues. The assessment complements two other efforts currently underway in Burlington:
- Exploring the formation of a municipal affordable housing trust
- Updating the Town’s master plan, which includes a housing element
The Housing Needs Assessment includes data collection and analysis to understand Burlington’s population, household characteristics, and local housing market.
Three virtual focus groups, a survey, and a town-wide forum helped the project team better understand local housing experiencesThe final housing needs assessment report was completed in July 2022.
