The new community survey being conducted by the City of La Crosse could have an impact on housing priorities in the city.
Community development administrator Caroline Gregerson said a similar survey in La Crosse, conducted five years ago, led to a campaign to replace rundown old homes with new ones.
Gregerson added that the new survey, which ends Oct. 31 could also recommend repairing existing houses.
The city gets $1.1 million in federal funding during the year, which can be spent on housing and other priorities.
The survey could help determine the future of services for the homeless in our area.
Gregerson says people responding to the survey might be able to suggest ways to combine homeless programs in La Crosse and other nearby towns.
