Housing Tools managed all aspects of the Housing Element Update process, including designing and implementing a virtual community engagement strategy. Due to COVID-19 our team pivoted to developing creative, interactive, and robust digital tools. These included a Housing Element website (www.chicohousingelement.com), two online community surveys, one virtual focus group, two virtual community meetings, and regular email updates and social media posts. We collaborated with a professional translator/interpreter to provide materials in English and Spanish languages.
