LDC was hired by the Cities of Bonney Lake and Sumner to create a joint Housing Action Plan. The tasks for this project included the development of a project charter, a robust public participation plan, housing data collection and analysis, and development of a Housing Action Plan. The two cities, located in south Puget Sound, share similar geographies and have traditionally provided more affordable housing relative to the overall region. While this is still the case, the two cities are not immune to the economic growth, which in turn has put additional pressure on housing availability and affordability. This project explored options on how to address these issues while recognizing the unique qualities and challenges of each community.
