The City of White Rock is asking all current and potential residents to complete a brief housing survey to help the City better understand housing needs.
The City is preparing a Housing Needs Report that will go to Council in the summer or fall of 2021. The report will include population and housing-related data that can be used by the City to better understand current and anticipated housing needs.
The Province of B.C. requires municipalities to prepare a Housing Needs Report every five years. To help gather that data, the City has launched the survey, which takes 10 minutes to complete, at talkwhiterock.ca/housing.
Affordable housing is one of the priorities identified in the City Council’s 2018-2022 Strategic Priorities.
