Balanced Housing Plan

The Adams County Community and Economic Development Department has been developing a draft Balanced Housing Plan (BHP) over the past year with goals, policies, and recommendations. 

Adams County has recognized the need to address local housing challenges and to work toward providing housing opportunities for all individuals at all income levels and stages of life. In a proactive effort to create solutions, the county commissioned a Housing Needs Assessment (HNA). The HNA created a thorough economic and demographic description of the county, including its strengths and challenges. It identified findings on which various housing stakeholders provided valuable input and possible solutions and also helped build the framework for developing the BHP.

Adams County is now accepting public comments on the draft 2018 Balanced Housing Plan. Comments will be accepted through Monday, April 16, to be included in the official staff report but will also be accepted until the public hearings. For more information, visit
