Housing Action Plan

The City is creating a Housing Action Plan (HAP) to help make sure a variety of housing is available and affordable to people of all incomes in Ellensburg. When the HAP is adopted in October, it will be a comprehensive tool that helps the City implement housing policies, programs, and strategies. 

Help us understand what types of housing Ellensburg needs

Housing survey is coming soon! Stay tuned for an online survey to share your insights and perspectives about housing in Ellensburg to help shape the City’s Housing Action Plan. This brief survey will ask for your input on housing needs and barriers in the development of more housing within the City.

In addition to data analysis and prior planning efforts, the Housing Action Plan will be shaped by input from community members. Filling out the survey will help inform housing priorities for the City of Ellensburg.

Stakeholder Advisory Group

The HAP Stakeholder Advisory Group provides guidance on the project process and analysis, as well as the contents of the final Housing Action Plan. The advisory group will work closely with the project team to learn about housing strategies, assess their appropriateness for the community and craft strategy recommendations. The advisory group is comprised of community and housing stakeholders including builders, affordable housing developers, human service providers, property owners, renters’ advocates, large employers, and communities at risk of displacement.
