Center City Housing Survey

The City of Redmond is seeking resident opinions about housing in Redmond. The results will be used in preparing a strategy for increasing housing in Redmond's central neighborhoods.

The goals of this strategy are to: 1) promote development where infrastructure capacity already exists, 2) encourage development of housing products that meet the needs of residents, 3) make more productive use of underutilized land and buildings, and 4) provide a stronger customer base for businesses.

Thank you for sharing your opinion!
