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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Rental housing: Actions that will increase the supply of rental housing generally (including market and non-market).
- 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.”
