Community Housing Plan

The City hired the consulting team of Karen Sunnarborg and Abacus Architects to prepare a Community Housing Plan to help us better understand the City of Beverly's current and future housing needs. The plan provides up-to-date information on local housing issues, identifies housing needs, articulates a Citywide housing vision, and develops a strategy to provide a range of housing types that meet the needs of a wide variety of people living in, and looking to live in, Beverly. The plan addresses how best to invest local resources dedicated to housing, such as the Affordable Housing Trust Fund and Community Preservation Funds.
