Bi-Town Housing Committee

Striving for safe, affordable housing for all

The Bi-Town Economic Development Committee was created many years ago to work on Economic Development issues in Dover and Wilmington. A housing sub-committee of Bi-Town was created in 2017 to discuss the growing housing needs in our community.

In 2019, the Housing Committee commissioned a comprehensive Housing Analysis and Master plan to learn more about the housing needs of our Valley. Since then, the committee has been using the data and goals outlined in that plan to work towards solidifying our housing inventory and to plan for future growth for our workforce and incoming residents. 

The four most important goals from this analysis were presented as follows:

#1 | To meet housing demand created by in-commuters,

increase the availability of year-round rentals.

#2 | To increase community pride and quality of housing,

improve the appearance, health, and safety of the

current housing stock.

#3 | Facilitate the development of housing

for seniors and year-round workforce.

#4 | Improve housing through a holistic approach

via advocacy and economic development engagement.

To achieve these goals, the committee focuses it's work on:

  • Ensuring safe and well planned growth availability the 

housing stock in the Valley

  • Providing resources for our housing providers,

homeowners, and renters about housing options and

future housing planning

  • Support and education for the residents of our

community regarding housing

  • Advocacy at the local, state and federal level to push

for pro-housing regulations and legislation

Our Meetings

 Our committee meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month from 1:00-2:00pm via Zoom. We use these meetings to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and overall plan for housing in the Deerfield Valley.
