In addition, a presentation on the Portsmouth Citywide Housing Plan will be given during the meeting.
Housing that meets the needs of its residents and supports quality of life is crucial to successful resident retention and attraction. In Portsmouth in recent decades, declining regional competitiveness and aging housing and infrastructure have led to population loss, even as the regional population has grown. A historic downtown waterfront, community and civic pride of lifelong residents, and regional strengths provide opportunities for growth in Portsmouth. The City needs a strategic approach to deploy limited funding and staff capacity and build partnerships to address housing challenges, enhance equity and resilience citywide, and meet the needs of its residents.
