City of Keene Releases New Housing Resilience Survey

Building on regional housing efforts by the State of New Hampshire and Southwest Region Planning Commission, the City of Keene is now seeking input from the larger community on its housing challenges, needs, and the resiliency of Keene’s housing stock, including those due to aging infrastructure and the impacts of climate change.

The City invites all residents to take the survey. The survey results will help Keene describe current housing supply and affordability and inform future action by the City. Responses will remain anonymous. The community survey is open through February 17th and takes about 10 minutes to complete. It can be accessed at or by clicking here.

Keene is seeking as much participation as possible to establish where the greatest needs are and determine how to move forward with housing priorities. The City encourages residents to share the survey on social media and with friends, family, and other community networks.

The results of this survey will be shared at a City Council meeting in April. For those who would like to be more involved in Keene’s housing efforts, there will also be a community workshop at the Keene Public Library in Heberton Hall on February 7th from 6-7:30pm.
