Housing Options Framework

The Housing Options Framework 2014 (pdf) is Red Deer's five year plan to end homelessness. It identifies sufficient housing options to meet diverse and changing needs to our community members, increasing the stock of permanent affordable housing options for all people.

In early 2014, the Red Deer and District Community Foundation retained OrgCode Consulting, Inc. to provide an analysis of the extent to which the current housing inventory meets the needs of target groups and assess future housing needs and determine the housing shortfall, including an analysis of gaps that currently exist for groups including seniors, immigrants, families and youth. As well, this framework evaluates the implications of The City of Red Deer’s existing housing and land use policies, assesses how these policies fit with provincial housing objectives, and provides recommendations around how The City of Red Deer might implement promising housing and land use policies and provides recommendations for key city stakeholders to meet the needs of target groups utilizing a long-term monitoring framework.
