Current Planning Initiatives

To understand the dynamics associated with the housing market in Sugar Hill the city conducted a comprehensive study in 2016. We named this study Home for Life in recognition of the need to provide a housing framework which provides options at all life stages and would continue to elevate the quality of life for all Sugar Hill residents. Many of the findings and trends from that original study remain relevant today but there are sharp changes in demographics, economic conditions and real estate trends over the last few years and months. In September of 2020, the city contracted with KB Advisory Group (KBAG), formerly Bleakly Advisor Group, to conduct a recalibration of key demographics and market data. KBAG utilized their extensive experience in our market, their technical expertise on economy and housing as well as targeted public involvement to update the data and recommendations associated with our current housing strategy. The project team presented its findings to the city council on February 9th, 2021. Please view the work by clicking the link below and let us know what you think.
