Housing Needs Assessment and Market Analysis 2022

Wayne County Economic Development and Planning department is seeking proposals to establish a methodology to assess the opportunity for new and rehabilitated housing stock, along with a comprehensive analysis of the market and economic factors affecting housing in the county. Results of this assessment and analysis will provide municipalities with strategies for updating zoning requirements and other strategies, in an effort to encourage community revitalization and targeted residential investment.

Please note, apart from the completion date in January 2023, these dates represent targets rather than deadlines. They are included as a guideline so respondents can address the question of availability and the method of achieving the objectives within this time frame.

  • May- July 2022 – Review existing materials, conduct research, perform interviews, public hearing
  • August 31, 2022 – Present existing condition draft, meet with the Project Advisory Committee
  • November 1, 2022- Draft strategies, market and community needs analysis, public hearing, and next steps
  • January 2, 2023 – Draft full report, incorporate any changes as needed
  • January 10, 2023 – Final document delivery

The remuneration for contracted services will be funded in part by Federal funds made available through the CDBG program. Contracts will therefore be subject to all applicable provisions of the CDBG program, Federal and State law, and regulations, as may be amended, including, but not limited to Department of Housing and Urban Development(“HUD”) regulations found at 24 CFR Part 570.
