Housing Plan 2019

637997878033970000The Midvale City Housing Plan is intended to be a five-year plan that identifies current and anticipated issues within Midvale’s housing market and establishes the citywide policies that will address those issues. It will provide a guide for building better neighborhoods, stabilizing existing neighborhoods, and accommodating Midvale’s future growth. Through a process of public engagement and market research six general issues were identified as influencing housing trends in the city:

  • Population Growth
  • Housing Stock Quality and Diversity
  • Home Ownership
  • Neighborhood Stability
  • Education
  • Housing Affordability
The Midvale City Housing Plan provides an analysis of the current housing market with policies recommended to address the issues, which are prevalent in the market based on the demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics of Midvale, its residents and their particular needs.
