Take the Housing Needs Survey
Regional Housing Needs Survey
The George Washington Regional Commission, our region’s planning commission, is collecting citizen input for a newly launched study on regional housing needs. The survey includes questions about respondents’ current satisfaction with the price, condition, and size of their homes, along with questions about any challenges encountered while searching for housing. The survey also collects information about household location, income, and demographics to help understand disparities in housing needs; however, all results will be kept anonymous. The time to complete the survey is fewer than five minutes.

To complete a survey over the phone, or to receive a paper survey form, please call Kate Gibson at 540-642-1579.
Responses will be collected through Friday, July 17, 2020. A summary of results will be released later in July, and the full report with recommendations will be released in August.
The Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (FAMPO) mission is to assist with the development of regional transportation plans for the Fredericksburg area, which includes the City of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania County, and Stafford County.
FAMPO staff provide a forum where local leaders, transportation professionals, and the public come together to address regional transportation needs. Staff also create federally required transportation planning documents and, at the direction of the FAMPO Policy Committee, study transportation deficiencies and recommend solutions.
