About the Kutztown Housing Plan

The Borough of Kutztown has an  estimated rental vacancy rate of nearly 13% (U.S. Census Bureau). To address this need, the Borough convened the Borough of Kutztown Rental Housing Strategy Task Force and hired Hailstone Economic to develop a comprehensive Rental Housing and Downtown Business Strategic Plan.

 

The plan was  developed in cooperation with individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout the community to articulate needs and to develop feasible, sustainable solutions for the Borough.
