San Antonio Housing Housing Needs Assessment & Strategic Plan
San Antonio, the fastest-growing large city in the US between 2000 and 2010, commissioned a needs assessment to review housing policies and programs to determine effectiveness on current market conditions, analyze the existing inventory of sales and rental housing, and project net housing demand for the next five years. A final strategic plan component offered specific guidelines to adjust the city’s housing policies. As a sub-consultant on the project team, M&L enumerated the current and projected housing need for low-income households and crafted specific initiatives to target diminishing resources in ways that maximized their impact. These recommendations included designating neighborhoods for intensive community development revitalization, creating a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) in conjunction with a recent Choice Neighborhood award, and partnering with the public housing authority to implement an acquisition/rehabilitation initiative for vacant multi-family rental properties.
