Please share your thoughts on Sandpoint housing and neighborhoods to inform our Comprehensive Plan Update.
This survey is an additional City of Sandpoint Comprehensive Plan Update outreach effort as a follow-up to workshops held on October 26 - 27, 2022 on the topic of Housing and Neighborhoods. The purpose of the workshops was to inform residents of current regulations, identify opportunities for housing solutions, and to gather input on where and what types of in-fill housing the community supports.
Sandpoint residents highly value their neighborhoods but are concerned about housing affordability. There are many ways to remove barriers to create more affordable housing through residential infill construction. Several of these are currently allows in the City of Sandpoint, including accessory dwelling units (ADUs), cottage housing, construction on substandard original lots of record, and townhouse construction. Finding the right balance between protecting neighborhood quality of life and providing needed housing for current and future residents is the challenge that must be addressed by the comprehensive plan.
