This is the second Survey from the City. Wonder what people thought from the first survey? See the results below:

Of the 138 responses to the Preference Survey that was mailed out (and available online) the majority disagreed with maintaining the status quo. This includes both the majority of respondents located within (88 responses) and beyond (50 responses) the study boundary.

Of the six forms of development outlined in the Preference Survey, the strongest level of support by all respondents was for standard duplex (65% supported and 20% did not) and small lot duplex forms (55% supported, 24% did not). The least support came through for small lot single family development including both a secondary suite and a coach house with a near tie among those in support and not. Those living within the study area reported less support for this form of development.

The rowhouse form of development, with potential for smaller individually owned attached single family homes with no strata, support was stronger from those within the study boundary (49% supported where 38% disagreed) while those in surrounding areas were tied 43-43%. Comments on this form provide additional clarity as support appears to exist for properties closer to the transit line (towards 15th Street) and adjacent to the higher 200 blocks density blocks nearby.

Have you heard about the City's Duplex Special Study Area? The Duplex Special Study will explore low density housing options (such as duplex development) for the 300 blocks of East 13th to 19th Street in consultation with area residents.
