Housing Options Study and Action Plan

Project Overview

Housing is at the core of vibrant communities, supporting downtowns, job growth, and institutions. However, Clark County and other communities across Washington are struggling to provide the variety and quantity of housing options that residents need. 

Clark County has jurisdiction over a large urban area with a population of 159,000, not incorporated into the City of Vancouver. By comparison, the City of Vancouver population is 187,000. County Council is interested in continuing their work in identifying barriers and opportunities to provide more variety of housing types in this urban area.

The Clark County Housing Options Study and Action Plan will identify housing challenges within the unincorporated Vancouver Urban Growth Area and opportunities to encourage development of housing that is affordable to a variety of household incomes through the removal of regulatory barriers and/or implementation of other strategies. These strategies are needed to help ensure future generations have access to affordable, quality and diverse housing opportunities.
