Housing Action Plan

On January 24th, 2023 the Town of Creston adopted the Creston Housing Action Plan. The plan includes 19 recommended actions, which are grouped by these four priority areas:

  1. Overall housing: Actions to increase the supply of more affordable housing generally (both rental and ownership) that those with low and moderate incomes can afford.
  2. Non-market housing: Actions that will increase non-market housing supply (primarily rental given the current market context) for households with lower incomes and larger households in the moderate-income category.
  3. Rental housing: Actions that will increase the supply of rental housing generally (including market and non-market).
  4. Lower-priced ownership housing: Actions that will increase the supply of lower-priced homes, including manufactured homes, duplexes, rowhouses, townhouses, co-housing, and efficiently-sized strata condos – sometimes called the “missing middle.”
