The Housing Inventory provides a foundation for community planning and strategy development.

Housing Strategy
Also prepared for Grand Traverse County by the Northwest Michigan Council of Governments, the Housing Strategy outlines a course of action, specific implementation steps and potential partners for future policy initiatives to address the issues identified in the Housing Inventory.
