In January 2021, Goosefoot hired a design team on behalf of the Bayview Vision Steering Group to study the feasibility of developing workforce housing in Bayview to assist with our local housing crisis. For background on the project, please visit our website.

We’re happy to report that the design team’s conclusions are positive regarding the feasibility of developing a multi-family workforce housing development, based on a suggested model of 2 buildings housing 44 units, with units ranging from one to four bedrooms.

 HOWEVER, two questions need to be answered before we move forward:

Challenges include:

These issues are not unusual. They exist for any new non-market rate multi-family housing development, no matter the location.

Next Steps

The Bayview Vision Steering Group, Goosefoot, and a volunteer network of experienced professionals are currently working on solutions to address these questions and challenges.

The planned October community meeting has been postponed
Our 2nd public meeting will be scheduled when we can report on concrete steps that can be taken to move the project forward. We trust you will understand.
