Housing and Homelessness Community Partnership Advisory Committee

Housing and Homelessness Community Partnership Advisory Committee

As the Town of Lincoln works to build capacity and community partnerships related to attainable housing, including developing guidelines for inclusion into design and construction of attainable housing, research, assembling input on policy and Town initiatives, and providing recommendations which will ultimately improve the housing needs of the community.

Mandate

The Town of Lincoln - Housing and Homelessness, Community Partnership Advisory Committee shall provide Council with recommendations on policy and municipal actions that will increase the supply of diverse market, co-op and non-profit rental and ownership housing options for low and moderate income households. Although Niagara Region has the overall legislated responsibility for attainable housing, it does not control local strategies such as zoning or municipal incentive programs related to attainable housing. The Committee will recommend initiatives to Council that will enable an increase in the supply of attainable housing in the community.

  • To support a mix of housing types, densities, design, and tenure including attainable housing to meet projected demographic and market requirements of current and future residents;
  • To support a range and mix of housing types to allow residents to remain in the community for their entire lifecycle.
