Sun Prairie – Workshop #2 recording
The City of Sun Prairie has embarked on a housing needs assessment, working with The Lakota Group, a Chicago-based urban planning and design firm, alongside SB Friedman, a housing and economic development consulting firm. This housing study will provide City staff, elected officials, and the Sun Prairie community a better understanding of the housing market, housing challenges, and current and future unmet needs. Housing for All will consider ways to manage change and balance community needs, while embracing the Sun Prairie history and heritage moving forward, to ensure there are housing opportunities for all.
This housing assessment is intended to understand existing housing conditions and identify strategies to advance the future of housing in the community. The Housing for All Plan is an eight-month process that focuses on four main phases:
Phase 1: Project Kick-off
Reviewing existing housing studies and data, and crafting a thorough community engagement plan.
Phase 2: Demographic & Economic Analysis
Analyzing existing conditions, opportunities, and constraints; engaging local stakeholders; and creating a solid foundation for the next phases.
Phase 3: Housing Stock, Trends, Market Analysis and Projections
Evaluating existing housing stock and developing a residential demand forecast model, to be shared with the community at large.
Finalizing the housing and strategy plan, including policies, strategies, and program recommendations, along with a Housing for All plan briefing book.
Take the online survey and join the virtual community workshop. For a better understanding of how your thoughts and feedback will be used in the next phases of the Housing for All Plan, please check out the information below!

As part of this initiative, the City of Sun Prairie will undertake a meaningful, all-inclusive public participation program that engages community members, residents, and property owners, among other interested stakeholders. An open and transparent public engagement effort will help gather input and feedback throughout the process to envision the future of housing in Sun Prairie.
Your insights, opinions, and ideas regarding housing today and the future of housing in Sun Prairie are important to us as we move forward with this planning process. There will be several ways you can share your input. Over the coming months, starting in May, the City and planning team will conduct stakeholder interviews, conduct a community open house, as well as post an online survey questionnaire.
