Request for Proposals: Housing Study and Needs Analysis

The Cloquet Economic Development Authority (EDA) is soliciting proposals for a Housing Study and Needs Analysis for the City of Cloquet and City of Scanlon.  This study will update community housing needs last documented in the 2014 Cloquet/Scanlon Housing Study.  The results of this Cloquet/Scanlon Housing Study will provide insight on housing issues in the community and will assist decision makers and community stakeholders in understanding present and future needs related to housing.  The study should provide an assessment of existing housing conditions, demographics and market demands with an assessment of unmet housing demand (5-year, 10-year, 15-year).  This study should also identify critical housing gaps and issues and pinpoint select strategies to address these items.  The report will be used by community leaders as a basis to formulate community-specific housing priorities, policy alternatives and intervention strategies.
