New Fairfield Housing Needs Assessment
Fairfield’s ability to address issues surrounding affordable housing and homeownership is a key component in planning for the future of the city. A lack of affordable, quality housing in Fairfield may impede Fairfield’s growth and development potentials. This housing needs assessment addresses how homeownership, rental, elderly, and special needs housing availability relate to current and future economic and demographic trends, providing a benchmark of the city’s current housing environment. A combination of new construction and revitalization/rehabilitation efforts could foster stronger neighborhoods, improve the quality of life for current residents, and increase the attractiveness of Fairfield for potential residents.
