February 23, 2021: Housing Market Summary — Vision & Best Practices and Recommendations for Policy Development

Bath Housing Development Corporation released Housing Market Summary — Vision & Best Practices and Recommendations for Policy Development.  The three part report includes 1) an analysis of housing needs, 2) a vision statement that outlines values and broad goals for the region, and 3) recommendations for housing policy development. The hope is that the vision will drive future efforts in this region – efforts that may involve the creation of new housing, but that do not stop there. 

Prepared by Levine Planning Strategies, the report highlights the mismatch between the housing types, sizes, and quality as well as the needs of those living in the region.  Over 40% of households in the region are spending more than 30% of their income on housing.  This is compounded by an average 42% increase in rents over the past five years, increases driven by net in- migration to the region.

April 2015:  Strategic Plan Released

In early 2015, Bath Housing began a process to develop a three-year Strategic Plan. Effective April 2015, the plan outlines strategic priorities through June 30, 2018. The planning process was designed to be as streamlined as possible, resulting in a concise plan on which we could build. Development of this plan would not have been possible without the active participation of Board members and staff. Factored into the plan are the many conversations over the past year with stakeholders including Bath Housing residents, the City of Bath and Towns of Arrowsic, Georgetown, West Bath, Woolwich and Phippsburg, other housing organizations, Maine State Housing Authority, and local, regional and state housing coalitions. We thank these many individuals and organizations for collaborating with us, and we look forward to working with them closely over the next three years. The plan is available if you click here.
