The City of Sanibel continues to gather input from residents on future housing needs.
The City of Sanibel has extended the deadline for its online Housing Needs Survey to November 17, 2023. The survey is being conducted in collaboration with the Bright Community Trust and FEMA Community Assistance Program to better understand the housing needs of the Sanibel community.
The survey is designed to gather information on the current housing situation of Sanibel residents, as well as their future housing needs. The survey also asks about the needs of the workforce and low-moderate income residents.
The information gathered from the survey will be used to:
- Develop a plan to meet the unmet affordable housing needs of the Sanibel community
- Inform decision-making for the Below Market Rate Housing (BMRH) Program administered by CHR
- Secure funding for city and local non-profits, like Community Housing and Resources and F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva, to provide affordable housing solutions
Any member of the Sanibel community is encouraged to complete the survey, especially those on a fixed income or those who commute to their Sanibel place of work from off-island.
The survey can be accessed online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sanibel-bmrh-20231002. Survey responses are limited to one per person.
