Coffeyville Strategic Housing Plan 2030
In January 2021, the City began to plan to meet housing needs across a broad range of income levels, maximizing partnerships, fostering both the creation of new and the preservation of existing housing units, and setting short and long term goals to address immediate issues and plan for the future. These efforts will be combined with education and outreach to keep the Coffeyville community informed and engaged about the need for a diverse set of housing choices and opportunities. The City’s Strategic Housing Plan 2030 comes at a time when Coffeyville is redefining its place in the Southeast Kansas economy. It is an opportune time to examine how the City can provide a balance of housing choices and preserve affordable and workforce housing and the fabric of Coffeyville’s neighborhoods. Coffeyville is in a state of change, the economy is stable, but residential development is very weak or nonexistent. As such, there is urgency in addressing housing needs now, before they become acute.
