Delaware County Planning Department Releases Housing Plan Draft for Review

The Delaware County Planning Department (DCPD) recently completed its draft Delaware County Housing Plan (2020). This document will be officially adopted as a component plan of the County’s comprehensive plan, Delaware County 2035 (2013).

The Housing Plan is a long-range strategy to provide adequate housing solutions for all citizens in Delaware County. The plan takes stock of existing housing and the factors that have influenced its location, type, and condition. It also examines the County’s current housing needs as well as trends likely to influence housing needs in the future. The Housing Plan outlines actions the County and its municipalities can take in the near and long term that are in line with the broader goals of Delaware County 2035. The Delaware County Housing Plan draft is currently available for public review and comment until August 26th, 2020. Please refer to our website for the date of the public hearing and adoption by County Council.

Residents are encouraged to take the opportunity to review and provide feedback on the Plan, which can be found on the DCPD website: https://delcopa.gov/planning/pubs/delco2035/HousingPlan.html
