The Housing Strategy will ensure the value of both new housing and existing housing continue to meet the City’s long-term goals of quality and value, while exploring strategies to aid in maintaining the diversity and affordability of the housing stock. The Housing Strategy is comprised of chapters analyzing housing attainability, property values, and housing conditions. The analysis helps inform future ordinance amendments, development agreements, and housing priorities. City Council received and filed the final Housing Strategy Report on March 14, 2019.
In addition to the Housing Strategy Report, in May of 2018 Clive joined Capital Crossroads, City of Des Moines, Polk County Housing Trust Fund, and other regional partners to complete the Downtown Workforce Housing Study.
