Phone survey to begin for city’s housing market study

February 5, 2018


Lawrence residents may receive a phone call related to the city's ongoing housing study.

The city is asking residents to provide responses in the coming weeks to a consultant-led survey. Answers will be confidential and will help inform the consultant’s final report, according to a news release from the city.

In October, the Lawrence City Commission hired BBC Research & Consulting Inc. to conduct the comprehensive housing market study. The study will collect and analyze data on the city’s housing market and provide recommendations for addressing the city's affordable housing shortage.

The consultant will also be conducting focus groups with community representatives, according to the release.

If residents have questions about the phone survey or the housing study, they can contact Assistant City Manager Diane Stoddard at 832-3413 or by email at

So the consulting group will tell them WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR. Who hired this group from Denver?

"may receive a phone call" uh huh. How is the phone list determined?

Did Markus hire the firm...? How much does the study cost? As if the city doesn't have a bunch of studies already.

Chad..compile a list of ALL studies AND THEIR cost for the past 10 years we need to be informed of just how money has been spent. And NUMBERS Boley might find in interesting..also
