The Bath County Housing Needs Assessment & Market Analysis Study conducted by economic development firm, Camoin 310, was completed in March. The study analyzed data, engaged stakeholders and the public, and identified strategies the County can employ to address Bath County’s challenge to provide housing to its workforce, a concern faced by many rural communities. The study and a video presentation by Camoin 310 can be accessed on the County website.
The study was commissioned by Bath County with administrative support by the CSPDC and funding provided by the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA). A Project Committee with representatives from Bath County, Bath County Public Schools, Bath Community Hospital, the Omni Homestead Resort and the CSPDC oversaw the project.
