Kingston survey examines need for affordable housing

Participants have until Jan. 31 to complete the survey

A survey of Kingston-area residents is seeking to offer better understanding of the housing needs in North Kitsap.

A draft survey, was distributed by volunteers with Kingston’s Affordable Housing Working Group during the Village Green Community Center’s Discover Kingston open house event last year.

Chris Gilbreath, a volunteer with the working group said shortly after the draft was distributed that the group was examining ways to ease the burden of affordable housing scarcity in the area.

“We have a number of possibilities that we are considering already,” Gilbreath said. “That list includes perhaps creating a tiny house village, utilizing boarding houses, maybe creating our own boarding house from one of our agencies.”
