Clarification: Diversity in the supply, demand, cost, and physical characteristics, etc. of buildings and land may exist throughout the region and may affect the local applicability of various housing financing strategies. Differences in financing applicability may be accounted for through the use of a housing typology (e.g. what strategies may work for adaptive reuse of industrial buildings vs. new exurban construction without public water or sewer), through a matrix of communities/locations/opportunities, or through another means. The RFQ is intended to result in a study that covers all common housing opportunities in the region. It is not expected that a separate analysis be provided for each municipality in the region.
