POUGHKEEPSIE – The City of Poughkeepsie is working with Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress (“Pattern”) to conduct a “Housing Needs Assessment”. This study will help inform the City’s ongoing comprehensive plan update committee and act as a foundational document and reference for future housing policy and programs in Poughkeepsie.

“The city is striving for a healthy balance of housing stock and is taking proactive steps to address this complicated yet vital matter. This study will provide critically needed details to help us make comprehensive decisions. Getting public input is essential to this process, and we look forward to these meetings,” said Mayor Rob Rolison.

Joe Czajka, Senior Vice President for Research, Development, & Community Planning at Pattern stressed the importance of the study, saying “Pattern is pleased to be working with the City of Poughkeepsie to further understand the housing challenges faced by the community. The housing study will also provide information to assist the City in its efforts to establish a new Comprehensive Plan.”
