St. Charles to host workshop to identify housing needs

ST. CHARLES – The city of St. Charles is participating in the Homes for a Changing Region project, which will help identify area housing needs through the next three decades.

According to a news release, the city will hold a community workshop at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in City Council chambers at 2 E. Main St., St. Charles. Residents are encouraged to attend and participate.

The workshop will focus on trends that shape housing supply and demand, and will look at how the city can offer housing that will serve both current and future populations.

Needs also will be identified in the surrounding communities of Geneva, Batavia and North Aurora.

“We are encouraging everyone to participate in this process as it will have an impact on housing policy for the next 20 to 30 years,” city planner Matthew O’Rourke said in the news release. “If you are not able to make it to the workshop, please participate in the online version of the workshop at www.foxvalley.metroquest.com. The online survey will be available the entire month of November.”

The plan is being developed through the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s Local Technical Assistance program, which helps local community implement recommendations from the GO TO 2040 comprehensive regional plan.

Key partners also include the Metropolitan Planning Council, the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and Kane County.
