Olympia and Thurston County officials want your thoughts on plans to improve housing access

Excerpt from The Olympian:

Officials in Thurston County want the public’s help in mapping out ways to improve access to housing and make housing more plentiful, and they are seeking comment on a draft of a local housing assessment.

According to a news release from the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce, the City of Olympia and Thurston County, staff started seeking public comment on the Fair Housing Assessment and a needs and housing market assessment last week. The public comment period will continue until April 14.

Comments can be emailed to cdbg@ci.olympia.wa.us; mailed to Olympia City Hall at P.O. Box 1967, Olympia WA 98507-1967; dropped off at City Hall at 601 Fourth Ave E, Olympia; or given by phone by calling CDBG Program Specialist Anastasia Everett at 360-753-8277.

The Fair Housing Assessment reviews the barriers people face when trying to access housing in Olympia and Thurston County. It was kicked off last fall by the county and city, and the public can download a draft of the assessment on the city’s Engage Olympia website.
