Housing and Economic Analyses

City of Astoria, Oregon

Matt Hastie (under previous employment) worked with the City to update the Housing and Economic Development elements of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.  The team evaluated the supply of developable land in the city and future land needs for residential, employment and other development. 

The team also assessed limitations on public facilities for water, sewer, and stormwater services; evaluated the need for a potential urban growth boundary expansion; and prepared implementing Comprehensive Plan and code amendments.  As part of this process, Matt facilitated meetings of the City’s Planning Commission to review results of an analysis and proposed Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance amendments.  As part of a first phase of this project, economic analysis firm Johnson Reid prepared the analysis of future housing and economic development needs, including future population and housing unit forecasts; an estimate of retail, commercial and other employment land needs; and an analysis of the types of housing units needed to meet the needs of current and future residents.
