Town of Essex Housing Needs Survey

Press Release:

Town of Essex Housing Needs Survey

Many Connecticut municipalities are devoting attention to whether they have the right mix of housing choices. Longtime residents are interested in downsizing out of larger single-family homes, adult children would like to return to Town after college, and many businesses are looking for housing nearby for their workforce at prices that are attainable. 

The Essex Planning Commission, which recently completed an update to the comprehensive Essex Plan of Conservation & Development, has a special interest in housing in Town, and believes that a wider array of housing opportunities will be important to maintaining Essex's special vibrancy and competitiveness as a residential community. Along with the Board of Selectmen, Economic Development Commission, and Essex Housing Authority, the Planning Commission is interested in the public's perspective of Essex's housing situation.

Please take this brief survey to help us understand your perspective, address your interests and concerns, and ensure that your views help share any efforts the Town may undertake in this area.
