The Stratford Housing Partnership is conducting a community survey about housing needs in Stratford and possible housing strategies for the future.  The Housing Partnership is a Town committee established in 1990 and reinvigorated in 2020 to, among other things;

1.       Examine housing needs and housing opportunities within the Town.
2.       Periodically advise Town Boards and Commissions with regard to housing matters, including affordable housing.

3.       Develop and activate a long-range plan to satisfy housing needs in the Town (as required by State law).

Please click on the following link to take the survey:


 Your response will remain anonymous .  The survey should only take 5-7 minutes of your time but will help the Town plan for the future of the community for the the next decade.  Thank you for participating!
