The purpose of this survey is to ask Yarmouth residents about the community’s housing needs, including the need for more affordable housing. The Town is currently preparing a Housing Plan which will serve as a blueprint for future housing creation, and your opinions will be an important part of this process. This survey is meant to be easy to complete and will only take a few minutes.  All completed surveys are due by June 24, 2022. If you have any questions, please address them to Mary Waygan at 508-398-2231 x1275 or mwaygan@yarmouth.ma.us
