Housing Internship Presentation

Harley Schuster

Hi, I’m Harley Schuster, and I’m the summer intern working with the Republic County Economic Development Corporation. While working here, I have been studying the housing situation in Republic County. While I can look at data and charts all day, it is important to understand the public’s perception and opinion on housing as well. With that in mind, I have put together two survey’s to better understand the public’s perception.

The first survey is focused on residents and employees that live or work in Republic County, as well as anyone that may be looking to move into the county. This survey will help determine both the present and future housing needs for the county. Please visit the following link to take this survey: tiny.cc/RPhousing

The second survey is directed to employers. In addition to the views of the general public, it is also important to understand how the housing situation affects employers and businesses. If you have a business that operates within Republic County, please use the following link to take the survey: tiny.cc/RPEmployerHousing

I thank you for your time and participation in these surveys. Additionally, I would like to invite you to attend a public meeting where I will be presenting my findings. These findings range from:

  • Updated Housing Assessment Tool Data
  • Housing Survey Results
  • Overview of comparable regional housing developments
  • Multi-family housing design ideas
  • North Central Regional Planning – Housing Programs Overview
  • City Packet Resource Guides

The meeting will be taking place in the basement of Astra Bank (1205 18th St, Belleville KS) on Wednesday, August 7th at 6:30. Light refreshments will be provided.
